Sarsuna in History

Determining the actual age of Sarsuna as an inhabited locality is a matter on which comprehensive research is required. From fragmentary ancient evidence, it appears that the term ‘Basin Saluno’ appeared in a map prepared by Ptolemy (Claudius Ptolemy, 100-170): the great Greek historian and cartographer. Dinesh Chandra Sen in one of his research works speculated that “salsuno” mentioned in Ptolemy’s map is the locality presently named Sarsuna. There are further references to this obviously ancient and historically important locality in Bengali literature. Pratap Chandra Ghosh’s (1845-1921) novel ‘Bangadhip Parajay’ (1869, 1884), based on the lives and times of Pratapaditya, Basanta Roy and Kedar Roy, and is set in Roygarh-Sarsuna.


Kolkata and Sarsuna


Before becoming a part of the city of ‘Calcutta’, Behala had its own significant status. Job Charnok acquired the lease for three villages for building a fort and settlement in the name of the East India Company from Sabarna Roy Chowdhury the landlord(zamindar) residing in Barisha (Behala). The site of the present General Post Office (centrally located in Kolkata’s business district) was originally occupied by Sabarna Roy Chowdhury’s Kachari (court and office). The controversy about who should be regarded as the founder of Kolkata – Job Charnok or Lakshmikanta Chowdhury (a member of Saborno Roychaudhury’s family) indicates that this family from Sarsuna, Behala played a significant role in the narrative surrounding the foundation of Kolkata.


Modern Education in Behala-Sarsuna


It is considered that the establishment of Hindu College in 1817 initiated modern education in India.
Henry Louis Vivian Derozio (1809 –1831) was a young teacher of this College. His influence on the young generation was immense and he played a significant role in the socio-cultural context of nineteen century’s Bengal. H.L.V Derozio’s followers are famous as the ‘Young Bengal’ group. Hara Chandra Ghosh (1808-1868), son of renowned Ghosh family of Sarsuna was a direct student of H.L.V Derizio. From being a Munsiff he was promoted to the rank of judge of Small Causes Court, an influential position for an Indian to hold. Inspired by the noble ideology of H.L.V. Derozio, Hara Chandra established a school in 1831. In the course of time to fulfill the increasing needs of education Barisha High School was established in 1856. Sarsuna Vidyalaya presently known Sarsuna Uccha Vidhyalaya was founded in 1860 and Behala Uccha Vidyalsaya in 1886. This phase of establishing schools paved the way for setting up of colleges in this locality. In 1950 the Barisha College (Thakurpukur Vivekananda College and Vivekananda Womens’ College) was established. In the context of demographic changes the then MLA of Behala considered the establishment of a new College. This dream was realized with the establishment of Sarsuna College in 1999.


Planning and Execution


On 20th December, 1997 a People’s Convention was held in Satin Sen Uddyan, Sarsuna. In this Convention a resolution to establish a College in Sarsuna locality was taken. The then Mayor of Kolkata Municipal Corporation Sri Prashanta Chatterjee, Professor Malini Bhattacharya, Sri Anil Biswas and many eminent personalities of this area, devoted to the cause of education, was present there. A College organizing Committee was formed with the erstwhile MP Sri Somnath Chattopadhaya as its president. Professor Malini Bhattacharya had given her consent to act as working President. Sri Nirmal Mukherjee became the Secretary while Sri Santosh Bandyopadhya acted as the Cashier of this Organizing Committee.


The Kolkata Municipality co-operated with the College Organizing Committee and gave two bighas of land on long term lease for the construction of College building. The value of the land was near about one crore. Simultaneously the Committee acquired the permission from the KMC to use the adjacent twelve bighas ground as College playground. Moreover College Organizing Committee was also exempted from two huge amounts for taxes for building plan and sewerage. Sri MonoJ Kanti Majumdar, Sri Gorachand Mondal and Sri P.B. Das, who were renowned architects took voluntarily the responsibility of making the College plan without any fees.


Fund was collected from many sources. MLA’s and MP’s donated a lump sum amount from their Local Area Development funds. The rest had been collected from the common people of Behala-Sarsuna. Local schools, youth organizations and clubs took important initiatives.


On 9th February, 2000 the foundation stone of College building was laid by Sri Joti Basu, Chief Minister of W.B. in the presence of twenty thousand people approximately. Sri Somnath Chatterjee, Professor Malini Bhattacharya, Sri Ashok Mitra, Smt. Krishna Basu, Mayor Sri Prashanta Chatterjee, Higher education Minister Professor Satyasadhan Chakraborty and many eminent personalities were present there.


Within two years and four months the College building was fully constructed. Total useable area was fifty four hundred square feet (this area has been extended later).


On the auspicious occasion of inauguration of College building a colourful rally was organized on 16th February, 2003 at Sarsuna. Near about fifteen thousand people participated in it for the sake of expansion of education.


On 22nd February, 2003 College building was officially inaugurated by Sri Jyoti Basu, Chief Minister of W.B.
