DHUBRI: In a bid to provide a platform to train the students for various civil service (UPSC) examinations, Bholanath College, a centre of excellence in higher education in western Assam, has introduced a six-month civil service coaching course from Tuesday.
Speaking as the chief guest, Dhubri Superintendent of Police Anand Mishra lauded the initiative taken by the college for the students to groom them by the competent institution for the civil service examinations.
"Apart from studies, exams and preparation, it is important to have a positive attitude and aptitude with confidence despite demotivation from all corners." Mishra in his long and inspiring speech also narrated his own experiences on the way to become an IPS officer and cautioned students not fall into bad habits to de-stress, and instead to try and find some other way out to motivate themselves as self motivation works much better than any other form of motivation, Mishra added. Mishra also wished all the students a success and promised to be always there if students and College desired so.
In his inaugural speech, Principal of Bholanath College, Dr Dhruba Chakrabortty welcomed the 47 students selected by an entrance exam and enrolled for civil service coaching, She appealed to students to be desirous, determined, decisive and disciplined to achieve the target.
"These are qualities you have developed within you. Moreover, you must love the job you are trying and aiming to serve," Dr. Chakrabortty said. He also informed that this six-month civil service coaching was sponsored jointly by Dhubri Ashokastami Mela Committee and CD Tater in memory of Inder Chand Tater. Secretary of Mela Committee, Ganesh Sen, while addressing the gathering, said that they were committed to sponsor the coaching with a contribution of Rs. 50,000 each for three years.
