The nation celebrates the National Education Day on November 11 as a mark of respect to Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. The latter was a freedom fighter and independent India’s first Education Minister (served from 1947 to 1958). Maulana Abul Kalam Azad firmly believed in universal primary education, girls education free and compulsory education for all children up to the age of 14, vocational training and technical education.

The ex-minister was a renowned scholar and poet and was well-versed in many languages. His real name was Abul Kalam Ghulam Muhiyuddin and was known as a brilliant orator. Maulana was an eminent scholar of Urdu, Persian and Arabic. He advocated the retention of English language for educational advantages. He also believed that primary education should be imparted in the mother-tongue.

He is also responsible in establishing most of the major cultural and literary academies we have today, including the Sangeet Natak Academy, Lalit Kala Academy, Sahitya Academy as well as the Indian Council for Cultural Relations. The first IIT, IISc, School of Planning and Architecture and the University Grants Commission were established under his tenure.

For his contribution – both as an educationist and as a freedom fighter – he was awarded the Bharat Ratna in 1992.
