DEPARTMENT OF SANSKRIT
Avidyayāmṛtyumtīrtvāvidyayāmṛtamaśnute. (Iśopaniṣad, verse 11)
(He, who knows both vidyā and avidyā to be performed by the same person, crosses death by avidyā and attains immortality or divinity by vidyā.)
T he Department of Sanskrit was set upat the time of the establishment of the college in 1969-70, and has been functioning till date following the syllabus framed by the University of Burdwan and very recently KaziNajrul University.Prof.RajatBaran Dutta Roy was the first Head of the Department of Sanskrit. Prof.Ramananda Acharya was a renowned scholar of this department. At present, three full-time teachers and two part-time teachers are serving the department maintaining its tradition and reputation. The number of students of both honours and general courses is increasing in a steady way.
Contextually, we have to mention that before 2000, the numberof students was very poor and the lack of job was the main issue in this particular subject. Around that time when the Government started appointing teachers in Government-aided schools through the School Service Commission, then the scenario changed gradually and the number of students increased. At present, the department has achieved its former glory through erudite teachers and dedicated students.
