Our college, Institute of Home Economics is celebrating its Golden Jubilee this year and is publishing a souvenir on the departmental achievements during these years. I had the honor and privilege of establishing this college with empty hands and very meager sources.

In 1961, we started out with a dream in our heart to have a professional Home Science education programme for girls. Now, the college has expanded its horizons and offers three-year bachelor programmes in Microbiology, Biochemistry, and Home Science as well as a four-year integrated course in Elementary Education. The Institute also has post-graduate programmes i.e. Post Graduate Diploma in Health and Social Gerontology. The college is striving towards greater heights with its teamwork and concerted efforts. It is the individual and collective contribution of each member in achieving this milestone with a great sense of satisfaction and fulfillment. The students imbibe qualities of an excellent teacher and researcher to set academic standards.

As I look ahead, I can visualize that the college will grow in pursuit of higher standards of teaching, research, and give shape to my dreams. It will continue to serve a significant role in higher education for girls and in the service of the country.

My blessings and good wishes will always be with the college. May God give strength to continue to see this college flourishing.
