Welcome to Bangabasi College
"The time is come when education has to be saved from the invasion of official and red-tape control on the one hand and the incursion of the turbid whirpool of party politics on the other. I have always through my long life strenuously fought for the Principle of the Independence of Education - the Principle of Education is an end in itself and not a mere means to an end, however high it be."
Acharya Girish Chandra Bose
Founder, Bangabasi College
Message from Principal's Desk
The historic institution, Bangabasi College emerged from Bangabasi School, founded by Acharya Girish Chandra Bose in 1885 in a rented housed in Bowbazar Street with just 6 teachers and 12 students. The College shifted to its present building in the year 1903 and the 'Bangabasi magazine', the first of its kind in the history of University of Calcutta came into being in the same year. The history of Bangabasi College is not the stereotyped history of "rolling on" over a stretch of more than 125 years; rather its glory is deeply rooted in the success stories of generation of young learners who drew inspiration from its preaching.Read More..
