Historic Girgaon.

The Students' Literary and Scientific Society's Girls' High School also called Kamalabai Brahmankar Shala, after its popular principal,  opened in 1848. It was the 1st high school in Bombay for girls. In 1884 the school moved to the present premises. This shows that education for girls was of great importance and was encouraged in Maharashtra in those days.

  2. That's fascinating. I thought that girls were not encouraged to get an education in India. Glad to hear that's not necessarily the case. Interesting photo of the building, too!
