2. 1 I NTRODUCTION Swarnamoyee Jogendranath Mahavidyalaya, a Govt. Aided General Degree College was established in 2014 with the approval of the Higher Education Department, Govt. of West Bengal. The institution began its journey on 30th January 2015 after receiving affiliation from Vid yasagar University. Since then , this newly established college is proudly imparting education in this rural locality where the ray of higher education had seldom reached before. The Bhaumik Family of Amdabad was instrumental in founding this college throu gh their generous sacrifice, nobility and all - out devotion to achieve this goal. Dr. Anindya Kisor Bhaumik, retired Principal and the youngest son of Swarnamoyee and Jogendranath Bhaumik, deserves special mention as he pioneered the establishment of this c ollege in the revered memory of his parents and with the constant co - operation of his eldest brother Sri Amulyaratan Bhaumik, former Headmaster, social worker and freedom fighter; the second son Dr . Probodh Kumar Bhaumik, the former Head of the Department of Anthropology, University of Calcutta; the third son Sri Subodh Kumar Bhaumik, retired Headmaster; the second daughter Smt . Renuka Jana, a retired headmistress, and their sons and daughters. In addition, the donations, bounties and multiple assistances o f the neighbouring families are highly appreciated. It is must to mention that the late Jogendranath Bhaumik, a great educationist, an immensely broad - minded man, and a social worker of great repute, led the way to spread education in backward rural areas by establishing as many as fourteen schools including the well - known Amdabad High School which originated during the British rule in India. To commemorate the memory of this visionary man and his wife Swarnamoyee, an ideal woman and a kind - hearted, affecti onate mother, who was also the source of inspiration for all such benevolent activities, this college has been set up with a special view of enlightening this rural territory which had fallen behind in today’s race for progress and development. L OCATION T he site of the college has a charming view of lush green fields and is located amidst a luxuriant landscape. While the college is currently functioning from its temporary building, a sanctioned magnificent building with picturesque views is already under c onstruction. It will come up right next to a metalled road passing through green crop fields, amidst enchanting views of nature in a serene environment. Far from the madding crowd, the ambience of the college resembles that of ‘Shantiniketan’. The college is well connected to the neighbouring towns of Henria, Chandipur, Contai, Digha, Haldia, Tamluk and Kolkata.

4. 3 F ROM PRESIDENT ’ S DESK Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world . – Nelson Mandela All of us aspire to be successful in life and success comes in various forms. But the common element to success is education. Sadly, not everyone has the privilege to access to the right education. We are committed to remove that barrier and bring higher e ducation to the local community. We believe, this can bring right changes in the society and can help the youngsters in making their future, empowering their community and make a positive impact. A step towards that dream was realised with the establishme nt of this very institution. Our goal is to expand and excel at all levels with increasing focus on research which can impact the local community, through technological innovation in agriculture, uplifting socio - economic fabric, preserving traditions, cult ure, and language. To this end, we are hopeful to expand by bringing agricultural, fisheries and technology education. Remote locations such as ours often suffer from infrastructure. But we are breaking the barrier through technology by bringing the latest digital learning and teaching infrastructure that is comparable to many academic institutions across the world. O ur students, although hailing from remote locations and often underprivileged, should have access to the most advanced technology and feel no inferiority at world stage. The journey has begun , and I take this opportunity to thank the members of this locality, my elders and family members, current and past staffs, and importantly the students in this endeavour . Dr. Anindya Kishor Bhaumik (Founder and P resident) P RINCIPAL ’ S MESSAGE Awake, arise, and stop not till the goal is reached . -- Swami Vivekananda The college was established with a vision to empower the youth of the surrounding area as they lacked the opportunity to pursue higher education. Earlier, after their Higher Secondary Examination most of the underprivileged boys & girls were unable to purs ue higher education in distant colleges due to poverty and lack of communication to the towns from the remote neighbouring villages. Many of the meritorious students from the neighbouring schools lagged behind due to unavailability of resources, guidance , and institutional support to enhance their knowledge to face the world beyond their homes. Though the college is still at its nascent stage and faced several obstacles like financial constraints, we are trying our best to overcome all hurdles and advance far ahead with the sole objective of providing quality education to the youth and make responsible citizens and successful professionals out of our eager young students. The ultimate mission of the college is to provide holistic education that not only con tribute to the students’ professional success, but also boost their confidence and develop their personalities, to enhance their creativity and to inculcate moral and ethical values in them. We endeavour our best to create an atmosphere that is conducive t o learning, thus making this institution a successful establishment for bringing about real social change. Dr. Ratan Kumar Samanta (Principal)
