Shri Murli S. Deora, who passed away this morning (November 24, 2014) was a Trustee and Vice-President of Bhavan for nearly a decade. Shri Murli Deora has been associated with Bhavan from his student days. He was a student of Bhavan's College in Mumbai and came into contact with Kulapati Munshiji as a student leader. Since then, Shri Murli Deora had been one of the most dynamic members of the Bhavan's Family. He was also Vice-Chairman of the Bhavan's Gandhi Institue of Computer Technology in the development of which, his contribution had been most vital. It was Shri Murli Deora, who introduced the American philanthropist, Shri Bill Gates to Bhavan and was instrumental in the Gandhi Institute receiving a large donation from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. He had also brought donations for the Gandhi Institute from the several Institutes in India. Whenever a need arose, Shri Murli has always devoted his time, energy and experience for the work of furthering the ideals and values of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan.
