Abous US : Let’s know late Sri Ghanshyam Narayan Das-
The school was named in the honour of Sri Ghanshyam Narayan Das Ji, a well known Bar-at-law by profession as well as educationist. He dedicated his life for eradicating illiteracy, as well as to give relief to the down trodden mass. He constructed his house in an area of more than 2.00 acres giving the appearance of dwelling place of the “Hrishis & Munies”. He had chosen the place for his residential house as it was very near to the Gorakhnath temple and opposite to Gurukul School across the road now known as Sonauli Road. In the Gurukul system of school the students coming from different family used to stay under the care of the Gurus. The inmates used to rise very early in the morning. With their chanting of Ved Mantras, the morning used to become so charming and pleasant that it touched him and he decided to construct his residential house opposite to the Gurukul system of school across the Sonauli Road.
He had a very large library rich with various collections including rare books. In the school library where the rare books along with manuscript thesis and other books of Ghanshyan Narayan Das Ji were kept have now become antiques. From his library we could gather that many dignitaries like Mr. Nana Deshmukh, M.P. and founder of Deen Dayal Research Institute was very close to him and stayed with him in his residence at Gorakhnath for many years. We could learn from him that Late Sri Ghanshyam Narayan Das Ji used to engage himself for hours together in reading and writing on different subjects besides his simplicity and honest living.
