POWER OF HUMAN WILL
GUWAHATI: Determination and will power have defeated the strong current of the Brahmaputra in Morigaon district. The Dakhin Tengaguri New LP School, washed away due to erosion of the river in 2019, has been rebuilt by a group of philanthropists.
Within a year, members of the 'Khalsa Centre North East' built a new building of the school. It was handed over to the Morigaon District Elementary Education Officer (DEEO), Kamal Jyoti Gogoi at a function held in Morigaon on Sunday.
Chairman of the Khalsa Centre North East Capt. P.P. Singh said that they could construct this brand new RCC building for the eroded school due to the inspiration and cooperation of the district administration especially former Deputy Commissioner Rituraj Bora and DEEO Gogoi. He further said that the villagers and the chairman of the 'School Management Committee' also extended their cooperation to the Khalsa Centre.
Addressing the Sunday's function after receiving the newly constructed school building, DEEO Gogoi lauded the role of Khalsa Centre North East. He said if many more such dedicated organizations in the State are willing to work in the remote corners of the State without expecting anything in return, Assam will soon see all-round development.
He said that with permission from the then DC Rituraj Bora, he got in touch with the 'Khalsa Centre North East', and started the reconstruction process of the new school building which was completely washed away by the Brahmaputra in 2019.
More than 80 students from four nearby villages study in the school which has classes up to Class V, he said, adding that the Khalsa Centre North East deserves credit for completing the new school building even during the COVID-19 crisis. The school will have classes in the new building from January 1, 2021.
President of the 'School Management Committee', Mahibur Rehman, had supervised the construction work of the new school building. He said, "After the building school was eroded last year, we were completely heartbroken. There was no help forthcoming to construct the school. Finally, the Khalsa Centre North East came forward as a saviour for us," said Rahman.
Meanwhile, Capt. Singh said that the Khalsa Centre of North East is grateful to Sanjeev Garodia of Garodia Constructions, Subhash Aggarwal of NEZONE Group, Subhash Kejriwal of Steel House, and Saurav Aggarwal of Dyna roof besides P.C. Sharma and members of Assam Pharmaceutical Association for extending their help in constructing the school building within a year.
