Affiliated to Calcutta University P R I N C I P A L ’ S D E S KImagination is the beginning of creation. The dream of 1916 has already crossed 96 long years and stands tall like an unquestioned reality. Now we have a rich past, a glorious present and a bright future. Asutosh College is marching ahead with its sole objective of providing quality education to all, irrespective of caste, creed, religion, economic status or physical health. To fulfil this objective, many developmental programmes were initiated during the preceding years keeping in tune with the changing scenario of education. All the information along with important events are being presented in the prospectus.
We are only four years away from the Centenary Year (2016) of the College.
Different developmental projects including the construction of ‘Centenary Building’ and ‘Women’s Hostel’ have been undertaken to deliver the academic responsibility to the society for which the invlovement of the past and present students is solicited.
It is worthwhile to mention that in this year we are celebrating the 150 birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda.
The inspiring thoughts of this prophet of modern spiritual renaissance are more relevant today than ever before. His electrifying message of the divinity of man, of peace and harmony, emerges out of his own realization.
to raise our voice In this context, we may recall his prophetic utterance as follows:‘‘What we want is this Sraddha S×kþyV. Unfortunately, it has nearly vanished from India, and this is why we are in our present state. What makes the difference between man and man is the difference in this Sraddha S×kþyV and nothing else.
What makes one man great and another low is this Sraddha S×kþyV.” ×kþyîy˜ œ¦þöì“þ Kþy˜›ä And that’s why it is hightime to raise our voice in tune with our ancient values Šéyey˜y‚ x•Äëû˜‚ “þþ™ƒ’ n×kþyîy˜ œ¦þöì“þ Kþy˜›þä n Šéyey˜y‚ x•Äëû˜‚ “þþ™ƒ We are dedicating this prospectus with our respectful heart to that great person who kindled in us the light of humanity.
Wish all the students a very happy beginning of their career.

AMBIENCEThe College was established to cater the need of the residents of South Calcutta for an institute of UG education.
Though other Colleges have, since, come up in South Calcutta, the largest segment of its student population continues to be drawn from this locality. Its reputation, however, attracts numerous students from other districts of the state.
There is also a significant number of students from other states and even neighbouring countries. Availability of Hostel accommodation draws students from distant places.
The variegated geographical, cultural and economic backgrounds of students create an ambience which is unique to the College. Despite its cultural intermingling, the College continues to be predominantly urban. Here modernity is tempered with traditional values. There is a strong community feeling among students informed by ethical values nurtured by both students and teachers. This creates a sense of security cherished by the College community.
The close proximity of the College with Jatin Das Park makes most of its class rooms bright and airy. The lush green of the park, with its multitude of trees provides the south view from the College.
This is truly a rare luxury in a thoroughly urban centre.
College Building since1935 ANNEXE BUILDINGThe College has an annexe, constructed during the Platinum Jubilee Year of the College. It is located across Basanta Bose Road which runs along the north face of the College. This building houses the reading section of the Central Library and several newly emerged as well PG Departments. It also houses the Asutosh College Training Centre (ACTC).
CENTENARY BUILDINGAsutosh College has recently purchased a new property at 22, Kalighat Road which will house the proposed Centenary Building with multiple opening for new PG Courses. The construction work has already been started for a five storeyed building with 15,000 sq.
ft. floor area surrounded by open area for additional facilities.
Modern seminar hall along with conference room, e-library, instrumentation centre, smart class room etc. are the proposed components for better functioning of higher education in 21st Centenary Building: Artist’s impression The existing campus does not have sufficient space to accommodate the proposed courses. It is therefore, planned to set up a new campus.
The College has acquired 11 acres of prime land at Bhasa near Joka on Diamond Harbour Road for its new campus. It will have a 2.5 acres water body landscaped into the architectutal design for serenity and pollution free, eco-friendly ‘green campus’ tranquility.
A state of the art Academic cum Administrative building, Central Library and high-tech Laboratories, Auditoria, Students’ Hostels and a residential complex for the members of teaching and non- teaching staff would complete our perception of the village campus.
The campus, in tandem with the heritage building at Hazra Park (Jatin Das Park), with its venerable rust of a traditional academy, will reconcile the old with the new and usher in new streams of professional disciplines. The campus has already been surrounded Proposed Second Campus at Bhasa by high-size boundary wall of 4000 running ft. followed by planting of 400 saplings. The construction work of Office building along with Hostel building in the campus are in full swing and also of the Academic building is in pipeline to initiate the academic activities in coming academic session. The academic activities in the campus will be distributed in proposed 15 different Schools of Life Sciences, Earth Sciences, Physical Sciences, Social Sciences, Computer Science and Technology, Rural Sciences, Distance Education, Language & Literature, etc. for interdisciplinary studies and research.
Academic & Administrative Building: Artist’s impression ADMINISTRATIONThe College has a history of dynamic leadership. The current Principal is an acclaimed administrator. His infectious enthusiasm combined with the innovative ideas and co-operation from different faculties has initiated a process of thorough modernisation and computerisation of administration.

Highly motivated teachers are involved in teaching and active research. Some faculty members have taken up advanced research projects in collaboration with other Universities and reputed Institutes. We have a high success rate and a large number of students who graduate from our College pursue further studies at various prestigious Universities in India and abroad.
Combination of traditional aristocracy and professional glamourWithout compromising on its reputation as one of the foremost Kolkata Colleges for imparting UG education in basic sciences and humanities, the College is fast gearing itself to meet the changing demands on education. Towards this end it introduced Vocational Courses tuned to the needs of the changing economy. It also introduced Honours Courses in some applied sciences which have a good job market. At the same time it plans to upgrade several traditional UG Departments to the PG level. The College has got affiliation from Calcutta University for PG Course in Environmental Science, Geography, Zoology and Bengali.

There is a constructive relation between the union and administration. The general atmosphere of the College is conductive to serious study. Critical inputs are welcomed from the students’ union, but the union and administration co-operate to ensure discipline. This spirit of co- operation has ensured that no workdays were lost in the last year because of student unrest.

Recently UGC has approved building fund for raising women’s Hostel.

Dandruff Dandruff is the shedding of dead skin cells from the scalp. As skin cells die, a small amount of flaking is normal; about 487,000 cells/cm2 get released normally after detergent treatment. Some people, however, experience an unusually large amount of flaking either chronically or as a result of certain triggers, up to 800,000 cells/cm2, which can also be accompanied by redness and irritation.
