Institutional Distinctiveness (2018-2019)
Recognizing its privileged position as a premier institute of higher learning, Bhairab Ganguly College makes consistent efforts in fulfilling its social responsibility toward the downtrodden sections of society.
The college authorities, staff and students believe that the true essence of empowerment lies in creating sustained forms of emancipation by generating lasting opportunities. An awareness of the plight of the marginalized and under-represented is the antidote to the forces of self-centred gratification so prevalent in our consumerist generation.
As the college celebrated its Golden Jubilee Year(2017-18), the college authorities resolved firmly to facilitate empowerment through education. An opportunity presented itself when an alumnus of our college, Ashim Kisku, mentioned the deplorable state of affairs in his native village Javi in Ranibandh block in the Bankura district of West Bengal. On 15th August, 2018, the college authorities resolved to adopt Javi village and focus on its social welfare, keeping true to our belief in the wisdom of the saying, “You give a man a fish and you feed him for a day.You teach him to fish and you give him an occupation that will feed him for a lifetime”, we took an initiative in creating self-employment opportunities for the village by donating 9 sal (Shorea robusta) leaf plate-sewing machines and 2 dice machines to the Sabar tribal community of the village. In subsequent visits, the college donated 5 more plate-sewing machines and 4 dice machines to ensure an increase in the production. Also on the morning of 15th August, the college team conducted a Science exhibition for the students of Ranibandh High School, Bankura. Interactive scientific exhibits were displayed but the cynosure of the day was the 3-D movie screening.
The outreach aimed to highlight that education and independent thought are the most effective means of breaking down “narrow domestic walls” (Tagore)
The college emphasizes that in creating awareness lies the true essence of education itself. It is a proud moment for the college to have moulded students like Ashim, who overcame adversities to earn a sound education.
