The Bhawanipur Education Society College (BESC) initiated a unique project Jal Se Jeevan, where students of the college with professional plumbers will be visiting neighbourhood residences to offer free services to ensure the stoppage of leaking faucets and taps.
“On an average one in three houses have leaking taps” said Prof Dilip Shah, Dean of Student Affairs, BESC “and these taps lead to a silent wastage, literally drop by drop with an obvious impact on the fragile eco-system, adding to the menace of global warming and climate change. Most people ignore such leaks but the fact remains that cumulatively, they add up to a colossal national waste that can be easily addressed and I am extremely happy that BESC students have initiated the process to address the anomaly”.
The event couldn’t have been named better. For, Potpourri literally means a mixture of dried petals
and spices placed in a bowl to perfume a room. The “dried petals” were indeed there – in the form
of slapsticks that didn’t take off and the applause that was supposed to be, but at times, wasn’t.
There were enough speakers to “spice” things up, too. However, the “perfume” – the sweet smell of
happiness, the aroma of jokes cracked, the fragrance of restrained humour – was there in big
dollops, touching hearts and spreading cheer.
The 2nd intra college Model United Nations (MUN) – christened the Assembly of Nations (AoN) by BESC – was held between the 13th & 15th of March in the college premises. Prof Dilip Shah, Dean of Student Affairs inaugurated the proceedings, while Kalicharan Shaw, a 3rd year student of B Com Honours, the Secretary General of AoN formally declared the Session Open. A total of 85 students participated in the proceedings. The inaugural session was marked by the rendering of a Bob Dylan number by members of BESC’s musical collective the Crescendo. Later, a few retro numbers were also reeled out.
The Department of Economics, BESC and the Bengal Arthaniti Parishad (Bengal Economic Association) organised a daylong seminar titled “Financial Globalisation in India: Theory and Empirics” on April 1st 2017.
The Inaugural Session was chaired by Biswajit Chatterjee of Jadavpur University. After the Inaugural Address by Dr Suchandra Chakravarty, Teacher-in Charge, BESC and the Welcome Address by Dr Ruma Bhattacharyya, Secretary BEA; Prof Sugata Marjit, renowned economist, former Vice Chancellor of the University of Kolkata and Reserve Bank of India Professor of Industrial Economics at the Centre for Studies in Social Sciences, Calcutta (CSSSC) delivered the Keynote Address.
Kolkata is a city known for being deeply enriched in arts of all forms, dance being an aesthetic pillar to the city’s repute. It does not come as a surprise that it has classical and contemporary trained dancers scattered throughout the reputed educational institutions of the city.
Aghora – the centre
Aghora, the centre of the Greek City states, was simulated by BESC on the 10th and 11th of March, 2017. Aghora followed Al-Souk last year, when the students had successfully replicated a desert flea market, perhaps for the first time in a college campus in these parts of the country.
Fagun – BESC Celebrates Spring in the Air
True to its traditions of inclusiveness, BESC honours the services of the members of its non-teaching staff making sure that the vibrant hues of Holi add a dash of colours to lives dedicated to the institution and the cause of the students it espouses. In its inimitable way, the institution celebrates Fagun – the harbinger of Spring, of renewal of vows and the appreciation of the dedication of its staff – with flower petals, abhorring the use of artificial colours in a Campus that is as green as Nature herself.
