College Principal


Bagadhar Brahma Kishan College, Jalah, originally known as Kishan College was established on the 16th day of August, 1978 at Jalahghat of the then greater Kamrup district, now included in Baksa district of BTR, Assam. However, after a few years, the College was renamed with public consensus as BagadharBrahma Kishan College paying a deep obeisance to late Bagadhar Brahma, a dedicated farmer and a humble social worker.

Established with the unconceited zest for imparting higher education to the eligible youths of the locality, B. B. Kishan College has gloriously marched forward almost forty-five years since inception and left behind an indelible legacy of its own. But changes and challenges are inescapable. In this highly competitive world, B. B. Kishan College stands as a beacon providing interminable access to information that can be transformed into comprehensive and indispensable knowledge. At the institution we relentlessly emphasize on instilling confidence and independence promoting critical thinking that helps the students act and react in real life situations. Not only is knowledge imparted but opportunities are provided whereby the students learn and test the applicability of the knowledge acquired. The needs of the contemporary society have propelled us to impart education that is both qualitative and quantitative. Our pivotal emphasis is on multidimensional personality development. This is achieved by providing contextualized study of curriculum which is given through diversified activities and competitions that make them expressive and adaptable. These activities focus on developing entrepreneurial skill, leadership quality, management skill, team spirit, communication and presentation skills, creativity and so on whereby students are well equipped and ever ready to take the plunge into the highly competitive world. The college provides academic and personal counseling to each student on regular basis. The vital essence is to provide personal direction and developmental guidance. Counselling helps teachers to bond and develop better rapport with the students that helps them to cope with the problems of growing up, keep up with their studies and planning their careers. The ongoing academic session has been an extraordinary challenge on account of covid. However, the pandemic gave us an opportunity to rethink and reassess the strategies for higher education. Times of crisis ought to inspire creativity, critical reflection, transformation, and renewal. In the new normal, the challenge is to adapt, regenerate, and position the college for a strong and sustainable future. Striving for a vibrant and dynamic academic atmosphere is a wholesome and holistic exercise.

This calls for the integration of students in the qualitative processes of the college. It necessitates an innovation ecosystem to hone the skills of students in diverse programmes to mould them to become notable change-makers of the society. The aim is to make learning an enriching, fulfilling, and enjoyable experience through a multidisciplinary approach, combining theory and practice in pedagogy. Bagadhar Brahma Kishan College is such an epitome of unity and fraternity where in students of diverse ethnic groups sit together in the pursuit of knowledge. We need to confirm and continue this spirit in years to come and all the stakeholders of the institution should reaffirm this holistic academic ambience to lead the mission towards progress and accomplishment. I convey my sincere gratitude to the teaching and non-teaching community as well as my beloved students for their uncompromised commitments towards achieving this goal. I also express my appreciation to the honorable Chairperson of the G.B. and the esteemed members for their guidance and relentless support for the cause of this Higher Educational Institution.
