Personal Data



Higher Secondary, Year 1976 (First Division)
B-Zone Boys Multipurpose School, Durgapur, India


This school was inaugurated on 26th January, 1963. This school's first principal was Late Mr. Kshitindranath Sen (K.N. Sen) from 1964 to 1972 - a teacher, educationist, philosopher, writer and poet. The next Principal was Mr. Niranjan Chakraborti, a perfect gentleman. Our Niranjan Sir was Principal, till I left this school in the year 1976 after Higher Secondary (old 11 year) examination.

The school is surrounded by four roads named by four famous personalities: Bankim Chandra Avenue, Einstein Avenue, Bharati Road and Joydev Avenue.

Unfortunately, this school no longer exists. Only the school building is standing there like a dead tree, with no leafs, no flowers and no fruits. It is sad to accept the death of an Academic Institute within fifty years from its birth. A large number of students after coming out from my school became Doctor, Engineer, Professor, Teacher and also A-class officer in various places (in our country and abroad). There are BHATNAGAR, INSA etc, who were once students of my school.

I can still remember some of my outstanding teachers: Arun sir (Bengali), P.K Das sir (English), Tarapada Sir (Physics), Panda sir (English) Sukesh sir (Chemistry), Ojha sir (Mathematics), Saha sir (Mathematics).

This year (2015) I was at Durgapur during October 20-24. During this period I tried to see the present condition of my school. Unfortunately I could not enter in my school campus. I could not get the main entrance of my school. The huge metal gate is missing. Even the metal road connecting the main road to the main entrance gate of my school no longer exists. The whole campus looks like a den forest.
