Brief History

 

The Department of Bengali started its journey since 1948, the year of establishment of this institution. Then it was a intermediate college affiliated to the Calcutta University in 1957. Since the college was upgrated to a Degree college, both Honours and General courses in Bengali were introduced and are continuing till date. Initially it was one-man department , the name of the teacher being Prof. Nandalal Pramanik. In 1955 he retired and Prof. Ambuj Basu , the famous critic of Jibananda, replaced him. In that very year, the second post of the Department was created. This post was filled by Prof. Rabi Adak, who was a good teacher as well as a poet. Subsequently 3rd , 4th , 5th posts of the Department were created and were filled by Prof. Murari Manna, Prof. Ramprasad Ghosh and Prof. Shyamsundar Bit respectively. In 1987 Prof. Shyamsundar Bit left this college. Prof. Ajit Kumar Bera joined against that post in 1988.

In course of time Prof. Ambuj Bose, Prof. Ramprasad Ghosh, Prof. Rabin Adak, Prof. Murari Manna reached superaunation and a set of new teachers, namely Prof. Sumita Rani Das, Dr. Subrata Chatterjee, Dr. Archan Chattopadhyay, Prof. Pradip Kumar Pal joined the Department in 1995,1996,1997,2001 respectively. In 2000 prof. Ajit Kumar Bera left this college and Prof. Arunima Dutta Chattopadhyay replaced him in 2001. Since the departure of Prof. Bera, Prof. Sumita Rani Das is acting Head of the Department.

At Netaji Mahavidyalaya the Department of Bengali is recognised as a very rich Department from the long past. Prof. Ambuj Bose, Prof. Rabin Adak, Prof. Murari Manna, Ramprasad Ghosh were all very distinguished teachers. That glory of tradition is still continuing unabated. It is to be added further in this content that the post-graduation teaching course in Bengali started in July, 2008. The Department has already gained reputation in this field also. This achievement has been made possible through the sincere and devoted efforts made by our teachers. Most of them are engaged in research work. Dr. Archan Chattopadhyay one of the seniar most teacher is now acting as a research guide under The University of Burdwan. Prof. Pradip Kumar Pal and Arunima Dutta Chattopadhyay are involved in UGC- minor research-project.Prof. Dutta Chattopadhyay, Prof. Tunu Rani Bera, Smt. Abha Dey are also continuing there Ph. D work under some well known university.
