It is a matter of great pleasure to me to give an account after wading through many ups and downs of life. I become nostalgic when I pick my pen to write about this college.
When I joined this college in 2003 as the first principal, my endeavour was to accelerate the objectives with which this college was established in 1985 by the then educationists
and visionary leaders of Haldibari, a tail end part of Cooch Behar, having large chunk of its population belonging to Scheduled Caste and Minority Community largely based on agriculture.
I just tried to continue what the founder members had dreamt to do. From its infant stage of having a handful of tin shaded rooms, I have been lulling and rearing this college to my level
best in order to metamorphose into a height of excellence. Higher education in the present day is becoming more challenging. To cope up with this fast changing scenario, the teaching-learning
process as well as other ancillary activities in the college needs to be reoriented which the college is trying to adapt. The whole hearted efforts of the faculty members and the co-operation
of non-teaching staffs to this effect provide better facilities to the students of this region. Living in this age where education is being commodified, through our daily classroom-teaching,
we try to instill among students the essence of morality, ethics, discipline, and harmony. The sense of responsibility and education that we inculcate among our students has far reaching effects
and life-long impression which ultimately benefits the society at large. Since a greater portion of our students are first generation learners who have to struggle against poverty and economic
hardship, we have taken the challenge to make at least one graduate in every family not only of this block but also in surrounding areas. To the financially weaker students, we provide adequate
library facility, monetary assistance from students’ aid fund, special coaching outside classroom etc. all of which collectively attract a good number of first generation learners of this locality.
We try to boost the morale of young bloods through participation in interclass debate competition, extempore, quiz competition, cultural activities, games and sports, NSS activities etc.
which make our student fit to cope up with the changing scenario. Leadership role of students through students union for the benefit and betterment of students are also encouraged.
In short, we are trying to make our institution a place for making a complete human being ready to face the ups and downs of life. However, a lot more needs to be done to make this
institution a centre of high eminence where brilliant minds can be reared and nourished. At present this college offers honours course in six subjects in Arts and programme course in
fourteen subjects; Science Stream has also been introduced. We are planning to introduce honours course in more disciplines and start post-graduate course in few subjects. At present,
the college has 38 teachers, 9 non-teaching staffs and 7 casual workers who assist in proper & smooth functioning of this institution. This college is affiliated to Cooch Behar Panchanan
Barma University. We help to blossom the budding genius into its perfect shape. Our aim has always been “vidyayā amṛtam aśnute” (one attains immortality through knowledge),
taken from the sacred verse of Ishopanishad. My best wishes will always remain with my beloved students for their bright and successful career, who are the main constituents of
any educational institute and without whose presence; I am not what I am considered today. I want to conclude with the lines of famous American poet Robert Frost:
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep ,
And miles to go before I sleep".
