Silchar, June 12: When there has been commercialization of education from the primary level to the higher stage, here is an educatiol institution located in the very heart of this town which helps students without much means and resources to pursue their post matriculation education. Of course, the institution is mainly for higher secondary students willing to study in Arts stream only. Established in 2001, the institution by the me of Netaji Subhash Night Junior College which runs in the premises of Chotelal Seth Institute at Shillongpatty is run and maged by persons with philanthropic outlook.

As Shekhar Paul Choudhury, secretary of the governing body and the mentor of the College, said, “Our primary aim is to provide opportunity to the needy and poor as well as those who cannot afford to study during the day. Economically depressed students get the access to education free of cost.” Paul Choudhury regretted that despite all their commitment to provide better and affordable education, no government help is extended to them. It is entirely the contributions of all those who are associated with the College that help run it.

Their means are limited but their will power and determition are the impetus for the College. The classes are held in night shift and five core subjects are taught. Five teaching and three non teaching staff combine together for cohesive and collective approach to impart best of education and create the right ambiance. Principal Meghth Das Kanungo is a retired principal of a college. The teachers are also retired persons from different colleges. The president of the governing body Hitesh Goswami is also a retired college teacher.

Shekhar Paul Choudhury who along with others on the teaching board briefed the media-persons here today in the college premises said, “We want to move brick by brick and make this college unique in its own way.” His confidence exudes from the fact that those who are associated in their own way and faculty have taken up the noble mission to take the college to the desired level. From this academic session, day shift has also been started in another premises at Bilpar.

It is remarkable that of the 14 students who appeared in the last higher secondary examition, 11 passed out successfully. The college is affiliated to Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC). Expectations are there for state government fincial aid. Paul Choudhury is hopeful of positive response from the present people’s government. He also is hopeful of public help in general for the NGO run college that has no commercial motive but to serve the society. Others present at the press-meet included Samir Bhattacharjee and Dipak Paul.
