Veteran figure in Education Sector Mr. Laxman RajbanshiJuly 16, 2014
Mr.Laxman Rajbanshi, founder principal of Siddhartha Banasthali School, has spent about six decades of his life in the development and expansion of Nepali education sector. Born in 1992 BS at Indrachowk, Kathmandu, Rajbanshi is a voracious reader. He did his master’s degree in political science. Rajbanshi had acted as principal at Aananda Bidhyapith before he associated himself with Siddhartha Banasthali way back in 2030 BS.
When he took the charge of Siddhartha Banasthali, there were not even basic infrastructures. Even the chair of principal was broken. “I used to prop up the chair by the bricks. The roofs used to leak water when it was raining,” he remembered. Despite these demerits, Rajbanshi steered Siddhartha Banasthali towards the path of progress. Till date, about thirty five thousand students have passed the SLC exams from this renowned institution. Many of his students have become doctors, engineers, soldiers, academicians, bureaucrats, diplomats, leaders and so on.
Rajbanshi had embarked upon the field of education with an aim to give it a new momentum. He derived his inspiration for achieving his life goal by the sight of the mark left by a moving snail naturally.
“Though the snail crawls slowly, it leaves its trace along the path it moves on. This nature’s phenomenon continues to impel me to keep on walking,” he stated giving an analogy.
Rajbanshi is undoubtedly one of the versatile and inspiring academicians. In addition to his involvement in the academic sector, he is also active in various other organizations and committees.
Professionally speaking, Rajbanshi even became an advisor of Minister of Education in 2046 B.S. During his stint at the ministry, he had visited many countries – Germany, France, Australia, Canada, Italy, among others – while attending different seminars and conferences being a representative of the nation.
Also the recipient of Gorkha Dakshin Bahu Second, Third and Fourth, and Trisatthi Patta Third and Fourth, Rajbanshi is still actively engaged in the academic and literary field at the age of 77.
Rajbanshi has not only been at the forefront in the academic arena. So far, he also penned some 14 books in Nepali, English and Newari language. His books written in Newari language portraying many aspects of the Newari society and its culture are critically acclaimed.
Similarly, the books he has authored in Nepali language like Timro Kapal Mero Nidhar, Pratibimba, Gunjan, Lekhina Banki Akshar, among others, have contributed positively to the image of Nepali literature. Woman and Other Stories, Shattered Dreams and Other Stories, The Red Sun and Other Stories, The Lottery and Other Stories and The Fallen Kite are some of his prominent story collections in English language.
Rajbanshi, who invested a great degree of his energy and time for bolstering the education sector, doesn’t have any repentance. If he has any, then it is the flippancy shown by politicians towards the holistic development of education system. “With the failure of education system in the country, everything goes down the drain,” opines Rajbanshi. According to him, the members of parliament are not taking any solid initiation to reshape the country’s education landscape in a more creative way.
“No one can deny that the overall growth of any nation largely hinges on the quality of its education,” Rajbanshi asserts.
