FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK
Greetings from the Principal, Janata College, Kabuganj, Cachar, Assam
“We want education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded and by which one can stand on one’s own feet.” Swami Vivekananda
Education is considered to be an instrument that can drive away ignorance and illuminate the mind of a man to righteous thought and action. It empowers an individual (student) and enlarges the horizon of her/ his mind. It enables a man not only to earn his living but also teaches him to live with dignity and honor. At Janata College we cherish this value of education and our objective is to let every student live a respectful life. We also value igniting the spark of creativity and curiosity in our students.
While saying this, I feel elated to introduce before you the mirror of Janata College, the College website (www.janatacollege.in) and the College Prospectus for the year 2023-24. I proudly place on record the fact that Janata College, the visionary dream of the people of this locality, whose little mission was to transform this small college into an institution of pride and excellence has now lived for 59 years and is going to celebrate its 60th (Diamond Jubilee) Anniversary in 2024.
Janata College is a premier educational institution established in 1964 and is affiliated to Assam University. At Janata College we care for the wholesome development i.e. body, mind and spirit, of each and every student. We follow “mentor system” under which the students are divided into four groups or categories named after four eminent icons of North East. We accord prime importance to the behavioral discipline, moral integrity and cognitive developments of our students. Departments like NSS, NCC, Physical Education, Information on Career Guidance and Placement Cell, Readers Forum, Red Ribbon Club etc. offer integrated services for the multi –facetted developments of our students. While student support cells like Anti Ragging and Discipline Cell, Internal Complaints Committee, Students Grievance Redressal Committee, etc. are created to ensure safety and security of students in the College campus. Our teachers strive to teach not only academic programme but also life skills needed for students’ self development. This College has produced students that have won several awards. They have been placed at different institutions and companies nationally and internationally.
At Janata College we take various measures to equip our teachers with simple yet innovative learning strategies that help them to teach more effectively in turn making the students academically inquisitive, scientifically innovative, spiritually wise and emotionally strong. We strive to provide an environment that is basically sacred, and has a framework of discipline that is flexible yet supportive, a freedom that allows students to learn even from their mistakes, to develop into person molded by the correlatives of freedom and responsibility.
Dear parents, students and all the well wishers I welcome you to a partnership which aims at moulding our children in such a way that they become the true global citizens of India. “With the paradigms of education ever-changing, let’s take the arc of history in our hands and build a better and safer tomorrow in imaginative and innovative ways”. I hope the students will keep up the high values they have learnt at their alma mater. I wish the best of fortune, peace and prosperity to all those who contribute to the noble task of spreading education. We must remember:
The highest education is that which does not merely give us
information but makes our life in harmony with all existence.
(Dr. DEBASISH PAUL)
