But the real twist in education was brought by  the former queen of Jaipur and of course the charismatic Gayatri Devi, who was very much interested in women’s education. To impart all round education on the modern lines to Indian girls so as to enable them to grow up into refined, knowledgeable and responsible citizen, the Highness Rajmata Gayatri Devi established Rajasthan’s first all- girls school Maharani Gayatri Devi Girl’s School (MGD) in 1943.
