Krishna Kanta Handiqui State Open University

During his seven years sojourn in Europe Handiqui spent four years in France and Germany. He studied and learnt many a language like Latin, Greek, French, German, Russain, Italian and Spanish. Justead of going for higher degrees he considered it worthwhile to learn as much of European literature and as many of European languages as he could, and as a result of this love for learing languages Handiqui had the distinction of knowing as many as thieteen languages including his mother tongue. When in Europe Handiqui’s heart was in Assam and he occasionnaly contributed valuable articles in Assamese to journals like Banhi and Cetana. His pioneer work in Assamese on Western literature and criticism acquainted the readers with various aspects of Spanish, Grrek Russain and German literatures. It is to be noted that his assessment on foreign literatures is based on his knowledge of the original work. [ In 1927 Handique came back to Assam with a huge personal collection of books purchased during his stay in Europe. He then got married with Hemolota Aideo, the eldest daughter of U.N. Buragohain of Nowgong. They have one son and two daughters. For three years Handiqui looked after the management of the family Tea Estate located at Tirual near Jorhat.

His well kept personal library at Jorhat contains ten thousand rare and valuable books in eleven languages of the world. Eight thousand books of this library now a part of the Gauhati University library out of which 842 books are in Greek, 337 are in Italian, 565 in German, 336 in French, 283 in Latin, 100 books in Spanish and Provincial languages, 2052 in Sanskrit, 73 in Buddistic Sanskrit, 193 in Pali, 342 in Prakrit, 191 in Prakrit and Sanskrit (Jain literature), 253 books on Archaelogy, Arts and Painting, 85 Dictionary. This multilingual approach to scholarship made him a keen student of comparative literature. It is for his library works that the world of letters will be ever indebted to Prof. K.K. Handiqui.

The English translation of Sanskrit Mahakavya Naisadhacarita published in 1934 as the first ever translation immediately made Prof. Handiqui known to the whole world.Naisadhacarita composed in circa twelfth century, is the toughest of all the Sanskrit epics. Handiqui was recognized as a scholar of International fame at the age of thirty- six. His first monumental work Naisadhacarita of Sriharsa has been very well received by the eminent scholarslike Prof. A.B. Keith (Edinburgh), Prof. M. Winternitz (Prague), Prof. M.B. Emeneau (California), Mahamahopadhyaya (Benares) and other distinguished scholars from home and abroad. Some comments of Prof. A.B. Keith are quoted below : ” The Poem is far from easy, and the translation has distinct merit. The extracts from commentaries hitherto unpublished add greatly to the utility of the work, while the appendices dealing with philosophical allusions contain much helpful matter, and prove the translator’s familiarity with the leading exponents of Indian speculative thought. Special value attaches to the most important vocabulary, which is rich in contribution to Sanskrit lexicography. I note with pleasure that the translator is to publish another work dealing with Kavya literature as a whole, a task for which he is clearly well qualified.”

Yasastilaka And Indian Culture, the second monumental work of Prof. Handiqui earned more eminence. The book was published in the year 1949 by Jain Sanskriti Samrakshaka Sangh of Sholapur (Moharastra), and the second edition came out in 1968. The general editors of the book Dr. A.N. Upadhye and Dr. H.L. Jain wrote in the Preface : In fact, sanskritstudies have become richer by Professor Handique’s contributions on the Nasadhacarita and Yasastileka. ……… .. Obviously his zest for Indian learning is a part of his personality; and his devoted self-training in Western Universities has equipped him with the knowledge of many European languages, Catholic taste and Critical outlook.” L. Renou, Professor of Sanskrit in Paris University, wrote as follows in French in the Journal of the ‘Academic des Inscriptions et Belles Letter’ : “Except for a note by Peterson, nothing had been written on Yasastilaka. It required the remarkable zeal of Mr. Handiqui, which had already found expression fifteen years ago in a vastly learned work on Sriharsa’s Naisadhacarita, to incorporate the Yasastilaka in the general current of Hinduism. This is now an acquisition.” Eminent Italian Scholar Oscar Botto has described it as ‘………….. it dottissimo lavoro di K.K. Handiqui’, which means ‘The most learned work of K.K. Handiqui.’

The merit of Handiqui’s work was duly acknowledged by scholars of the All India Oriental Conference held that year in Bombay and Handiqui was elected the president of the next Classical Sanskrit Session of the All India Oriental Conference held in Locknow in 1951.

Handiqui’s third monumental work Pravarasena’s Setubandha was published by Prakrit Text Society as Prakrit text series XX in 1976 from Ahmedabad under the General Editorship of Professor H.C. Bhayani and Professor D.D. Malvania. “Prof. Handiqui’s critical translation of Pravarasena’s Setubandha is one of the few woks that mark the highest achievement in the major literary genre of Mahakavya. No recent work of Prakrit literary scholarship matches the present work in richness of the exegetical materials culled after a meticulous scanning of numerous commentaries so as not to miss any significant detail. The Setubandha can fairly compare with the Saptasataka of Hata in points of age, importance and a continuous tradition of high literary esteem. The latter work had quite early received thorough attention it deserved from a scholar of Weber’s stature; the Setubandha, it seems, was reserved for Prof. Handiqui’s mature scholarship.” (Vide General editor’s Foreword).

Handiqui started the work of Setubandha after his retirement from Vice-Chancellorship, a period of nine years, which he described as sterile. Inspite of his advanced age and failing health Handiqui had spared no pains in making available profuse extracts fromvarious unpublished commentaries. We can have a clear idea about the amount of pain taken by him in respect of the work of Setubandha from the Preface, as Handiqui wrote, “……………… Dr. A.N. Upadhye at whose suggestion I had undertaken this work passed away to my great sorrow shortly before the publication of the volume. Without his help and encouragement it would have been difficult for me to complete the task in my declining years marked by ill health and bereavement.

Setubandha is a Prakrit Mahakavya composed in circa fifth century A.D. Handiqui translated into English with extract from unpublished commentaries and critical notes. His present volume comprising 800 pages contains a 147 page introduction. In the preface to the first edition of Naisadha-carita he mentioned that he wanted to write on general survey of the Mahakavya literature. Unfortunately this promise he could not keep because of his preoccupation as the Vice-Chancellor of the Gauhati University.

Patna University

As soon as the Province of Bihar and Orissa was organised a public demand arose for the setting up of a university at Patna. In response to this demand the Government of Bihar and Orissa submitted to the Government of India a proposal for constituting a Committee to work out a scheme for setting up a university in the new Province. In May 1913, the Patna University Committee was appointed with R. Nathan, C.I.E., C.S.I., as President and J.G. Jennings, officiating Director of Public Instruction, Bihar and Orissa, A.G. Wright, Director of Public Instruction of the Central Provinces, the Hon’ble Raja Rajendra Narayan Bhanj Deo of Kanika, the Hon’ble Mr. Madhusudan Das, C.I.E., the Hon’ble Rai Sheo Shankar Sahay Bahadur, C.I.E., the Hon’ble Khan Bahadur Saiyed Muhammad Fakhr-ud-din, the Hon’ble Babu Dwarka Nath, Saiyed Nurul Huda, Barrister-at-Law, Sachchidananda Sinha, Barrister-at-Law, W.A.J. Archbold, Principal, Dacca College, C. Russel, officiating Principal, Patna College, R.W.F. Shaw, Principal, Ravenshaw College, the Rev. S.L. Thompson, Principal, St. Columba’s College, Hazaribagh, D.N. Sen, Principal, Bihar National College, Bankipur, V.H. Jackson, Professor of Physics, Patna College, and K.S. Caldwell, Professor of Chemistry, Patna College, as members, and P.C. Tallents as Secretary.
The terms of reference to the Committee were:

The University being intended for the benefit of the whole province, the needs of all parts of the country, and of all sections of the people, should receive careful attention;
Provision should be made for a university at Patna, or at some convenient place in its neighbourhood, of the teaching and residential type, and for the affiliation to this central institution of colleges situated in other places;
The scheme should not involve any such additional costs to the students as would discourage them from taking full advantage of the facilities to be offered.
This Committee held its first meeting on 16 July, 1913 and submitted its report in March 1914. It recommended the establishment of a central institution at Patna which would undertake the higher branches of instruction, conduct the examinations, supervise the general life and training of the students and regulate the teaching and organization of a number of incorporated colleges. The central institution was recommended to be located at Phulwarisharif, west of the New Capital, and it was to consist of Patna College, Biseswar College (Bihar National College), King’s College, Mission College, a Non-Collegiate Department, a Sanskrit College and a Training College for teachers. Provision was to be made for the instruction of 950 students in the Faculty of Arts, 410 students in the Faculty of Science, 190 students in the Faculty of Law and 32 students in the Faculty of Education. It is surprising that the Committee did not envisage the establishment of the Faculties of Engineering and Medicine which were so very essential for the development of the new Province. The then existing Colleges at Cuttack, Bhagalpur, Muzaffarpur and Hazaribagh, but not the College at Monghyr were to be affiliated to the Patna University. Out of the five non-official Biharee members of the Committee, Mr. Sachchidanand Sinha was the most important person. These members suggested that the Government should keep in view the establishment, at no distant date, of colleges for imparting education in Medicine, Engineering, Commerce, Agriculture and Technology. Even these members could not visualise the importance of setting up a Veterinary College here. The Indian Industrial Commission proposed to establish the General Technological Institute at Patna, but no effective steps were taken to translate the recommendation into action.

According to the majority of the members of the Committee Honours, Mastership and science teaching above the Intermediate standard were to be imparted at Patna only and by the University itself. The capital cost of the whole project was estimated at Rs. 95,33,000/-, the recurring cost was to be nearly Rs. 11,50,000/-. Of this nearly half the amount was to be realised through tuition fees, etc. and the remaining Rs. 6,00,000/- to be granted by the Government. When the Committee made these recommendations it could not foresee that the Government would face a serious financial crisis on account of the outbreak of the First World War. It is a pity that the estimates of expenditure both recurring and non-recurring, were not favourably considered by the Government and much of the ambitious projects of starting a University with a residential bias had therefore to be given up.

The Nathan Committee proposed that the University should have a whole-time officer as Vice-Chancellor. The Body corresponding to the Senate was to be called the Convocation and it was to be vested with the power of dealing with general questions and of framing the regulations. The executive body of the University was to be called the Council consisting of the Vice-Chancellor, two ex-officio members, the Principals of all Colleges, whether internal or external, the Dean of Non-Collegiate students, six members of the staff nominated by the Chancellor and seven persons elected by the Convocation. The Committee wanted to make this Council the supreme body in the University as it laid down that the decision of the Council was not to be subject to revision by the Convocation. Some of the features of the original Bill introduced by Sir Sankaran Nair, the member-in-charge of Education in the Governor-General’s Council, were based on the recommendations of the Nathan Committee.

Rabindra Bharati University

Late Suresh Chandra Majumdar on behalf of Rabindra Bharati Society collected from public around Rs. 15 Lakhs and part of the money was paid to the private party to acquire the property as stated above. In the meanwhile the private party went to the High Court for enhancement of the award and the party was given additional award of Rs. 3 Lakhs by the court. As Suresh Chandra Majumdar was facing severe fund crisis, he asked the West Bengal Government to release suitable grant. An agreement was signed between the Government and Rabindra Bharati Society and as a condition of the grant, the Government was given the right to use Rabindra Bharati property for use of its proposed Dance, Drama and Music Institute. Accordingly, the Institute, namely West Bengal State Akademy of Dance, Drama, Music and Visual Arts (present name) was established in 1955. Uday Shankar, Ahindra Chowdhury and Ramesh Banerjee were put in charge of Dance, Drama and Music respectively.

Uday Shankar subsequently left the Institute. In 1959, it was felt that the Government of West Bengal would establish a University as a memorial to Rabindranath. Since the original purpose of Rabindra Bharati Society was also the development Dance, Drama and Music, the general body of the Rabindra Bharati Society met and agreed that it should be merged with proposed university. The Government of West Bengal was further contemplating to celebrate birth centenary of Rabindranath Tagore. The Government thought that the best way to perpetuate the memory of Rabindranath tagore would be to acquire the family dwellings and utilize them for the purpose of establishing a university and persuaded Rathindranath Tagore to hand over the buildings including the room where Rabindranath Tagore breathed his last.

As the college had no connection with the Birlas/the Vidyamandir Society since they handed over the college to Late. Prof. Sambhu Ghosh, then Hon’ble Minister -in-charge, Higher Education Dept., the G.B. of the college proposed the change of its name on and from 1.7.1987-the name of the college was changed from Birla College of Science and Education to Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose College with the approval of C.U.
When the college was suddenly shifted by a previous G.B. to the present premises no.1/1A,1/1B and 1/C A.J.C.Bose Road,Kolkata-20 in May,1978,it was found that the premises under lease, the terms of which expired on 31.12.1979 and the leaser refused to recognize the college or accept rent from the college and also threatened to evict the college. On 26th December,1979 the aforesaid property was requisitioned by the Land and Land Reforms Dept.,Govt. of W.B. for a Public Purpose. Subsequently the State Govt. decided to acquire the property permanently under L.A. Act,1984 on 24.06.88 for the accommodation of the college. Thereafter the story of a series of legal battles in the Hon’ble High Court of Calcutta & in the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India with the landlords, shopkeepers and property developers followed by threats, provocations and enticements.

However, the teaching and other activities of the college were carried out uninterruptedly and with full vigour in a dilapidated building without a right to repair or construct during that period of hard struggle.
Immediately after receiving the possessions the Governing Body of the college put their entire endeavour for amalgamation and mutation of the land by the Kolkata Municipal Corporation. The three plots at 1/1A,1/1B , 1/1C Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Road were amalgamated on 02.09.05 as a single address at 1/1B,Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Road,Kolkata-20.The mutation of the said premises was also made at the same time.

Scottish Church College

The spread of European education in alliance with the doctrine of Christianity had been an important impetus to missionary enterprise in India in the nineteenth century. Scottish Church College, established in 1830 as the General Assembly’s Institution and given its present name in 1929 is an institution born out of one such impetus.

The college founder, Rev. Alexander Duff, was the first missionary to India from the Church of Scotland. His idea was to set up an institution which linked western education with Christian mission and the eventual progress of the people — years later the College is committed to the vision of its founding father and aims at academic excellence alongwith social awareness and character building.

The College is the second oldest in North Calcutta and has produced numerous outstanding people, chief among them being Swami Vivekananda and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. The College has been awarded Grade A by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). The college also enjoys the status of College with Potential for Excellence, a quality rating by the University Grants Commission. Media survey rates Scottish as one among the top fifty colleges in India.

The College is now owned and administered by the Church of North India (CNI) through the diocese of Calcutta. It is affiliated to the University of Calcutta but enjoys autonomous status for its Faculty of Post Graduate Studies. We offer Honours course in 15 subjects in the under-graduate stream and post-graduate course in two subjects. The Department of Teacher Education of the college prepares women students for the Bachelor of Education degree.

In keeping with the vision of its founder, the Scottish Church College encouraged academic excellence as well as promoting personality development, community service and the refinement of aesthetic sensibilities. Through the years a long line of illustrious personalities have been educated in these hallowed halls of learning. The splendorous architecture of the College including its magnificent prayer hall is eloquent testimony to its timeless heritage and the pioneering vision of its founding fathers
