Brief Description of Satyawati Evening College, Delhi
Satyawati Evening College takes its name after Behan Satyawati, the illustrious freedom fighter of Delhi, remembered for her dedication to various missions. Known for exceptional courage and conviction, Satyawati worked in close association with patriots like Jawaharlal Nehru, Jai Prakash Narayan, and Sarojini Naidu. Lauding her special achievements, Mahatma Gandhi is reported to have said, “She is a very brave girl... I have named her Toofani... Her whole life has been as forceful as a storm”.
