In November, 1898, at the request of Swami Vivekananda, Sister Nivedita opened a school for girls. Inaugurated by Sarada Devi, in the presence of Swami Vivekananda and some of the other disciples of Ramakrishna, the school, with the help of newly arrived Sister Christine, slowly grew.

Sudhira Bose (or Basu) joined the Sister Nivedita Girls’ School as a teacher in 1906, immediately making a significant contribution. After the death of Sister Nivedita, she worked closely with Sister Christine, and due to her love, energy and resourcefulness, the School’s enrollment and recognition in society increased greatly. In 1912, Sudhira left home to live with Sister Christine and dedicated the rest of her life to the School. When Sister Christine left for America in 1914, in failing health, Sister Sudhira became the next administrator. Sister Sudhira’s legacy is of prime importance to the Sri Sarada Math of the Ramakrishna Order, for the founding of the ashram section of the Nivedita School became the forerunner of Sri Sarada Math.

This short biography of Sister Sudhira is a wonderful introduction to the life of this most devoted woman and the early history of the Ramakrishna Sarada Mission Sister Nivedita Girls' School.
