Commencing his long journey in 1940 with a small school for the have-nots, in a thatched-hutment on a grassless stretch outside the village of Majhihira, “Chitta Pandit” had started his journey to eternity on 7th February, 2016 at 12:32 a.m.
The youngest child of Rishi Nibaran Chandra Dasgupta, the father of freedom movement in Manbhum, Chitta Bhusan had imbibed Basic Eductaion or Nai Talim of Mahatma Gandhi as his own mission of life ad brought into being a beautiful Ashram Bidyalaya, full of natural flora and fauna, in Majhihira for imparting it.
Countless people who have received “education” from this glorious institution are important social personalities today.
A solemn meeting commemorating him is being arranged in the village of Majhihira on 18th February, 2016 starting at 10 a.m.
Dignitaries and intellectuals of all ages and from all wlaks of life from all over India are converging in Majhihira to relive his fond memories and pay homage to him. At the end, as he always desired, a humble lunch before saying good bye.
We solicit your gracious presence and participation in the occassion.
