Message from Teacher-in-charge

As the Teacher-in-charge of Karimpur Pannadevi College, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website. Karimpur Pannadevi College was born out of the sweat, toil and vision of its founders. With a long cherished deep desire to give quality education to the students of this economically backward rural area close to Indo-Bangladesh international border, an enthusiastic group of people of surrounding villages under the leadership of Dr. Nalinaksha Sanyal, with his philanthropic zeal along with the donation made by Sri Durga Prasad Agarwala, sowed the seed of the College in 1968 and was named after Pannadevi Agarwala. At the height of adversity these visionaries had only thought of creating a temple of knowledge. The tiny seed, now growing into a mighty tree, has been very fondly offering numberless education lovers its calm shade throughout years. Our endeavour, year after year, has been to keep adding to that temple so as to create wonderful windows of opportunity for all who pass out from here.

Education has always been a thrust area of priority for the governments of the contemporary world. India, being a predominantly rural polity, has rightly realized that it can't think of any meaningful accomplishments without taking its rural masses on board while designing her expansion plans in the field of elementary as well as the higher education. The differently-advantaged rural youth, from its side, need to make the best possible use of the facilities being provided at their doorsteps, acquire the skills of a responsible citizen and finally start contributing in approaching the challenges facing the contemporary societies. Karimpur Pannadevi College shall be aspiring to serve as a facilitator and service provider for all the interested and motivated students of the area and try to build the necessary infra structure, services and facilities to equip them with the required skills and an urge to compete and contribute alongside their better advantaged urban counterparts in the noble task of the service to humanity.

We describe ourselves as a learning community because we believe that we are all learners - teachers, students and parents - learning from and with each other. We describe ourselves as a community in which parents, teachers and support staff work in partnership with each other to advance the learning and growth of the students. Our vision is “Growing and Nurturing Excellence, Wisdom and Service”. Our mission – “Learning to Live; Living to Serve”. Our motto is “A More Excellent Way”.

Dear Students, “A desire can change nothing, a decision can change something, but a determination can change everything”. We may forget so many things that we learn, but while learning, let us not forget that we also build something, our Personality and Character. While we study, something deeper is going on, which we are not aware of; we are laying the foundation of courage, perseverance which will have a lasting influence. The future belongs to you; you need, therefore, to prepare yourself for an active participation in the world. This participation demands that you become well informed, develop yourself like a pioneer and ultimately grow as responsible men and women. I believe this will certainly empower you to understand my intentions and what I expect from all of you when you leave the portals of the college premises. Hence, inculcate a planned life --- where sense of values, time and commitment must matter more than anything else. Be a dreamer and a performer, never be taken away either by sense of defeat or victory. Participate almost in every college activity. Learn to take the pressure of all kinds of competition. Never retreat from a great cause or action, just because you are not able to perceive the goal or immediate objectives. Do not follow the whims and fancies of others blindly. Always think and review --- discover the cause and effect of every event where you had been involved. Never speak ill at the back of a person. Do not surrender or become a slave to youthful fancies and indulgences. Try to be honest at all costs and learn the great act of humility. However, I also wish to tell our students that, “Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”

As Teacher-in-charge of Karimpur Pannadevi College, I appreciate guidance of our Governing Body and participation of staff and students in the endeavour towards excellence. The college is focused on its vision and the strategies for carrying it out for the socio-economic development of the backward areas surrounding Karimpur. I welcome your interest in the College and hope you enjoy browsing our website.

A warm welcome to you! Join us to work with vision!
