By Correspondent

BARPETA, Dec 29 - Renowned academician, teacher and school administrator Chandramohan Sarma got a new lease of life after 42 years of his death when a bronze statue of the great soul was unveiled in Sarhebari Higher Secondary School campus in Barpeta district recently.

Inaugurating the statue, Dr Rabin Dev Choudhury, former director general of national museum, New Delhi, termed Chandramohan Sarma as a great luminary who illuminated numerous souls in this backward area. Stating that his ideals are still relevant, Dr Choudhury urged upon the new generation to work with dedication for the upliftment of the society.

Earlier, Mangalacharan was performed by Umakanta Dev Sarma, retired professor Krishnakanta Handique Government Sanskrit College. Lights were lit by several dignitaries, well-wishers and relatives.

The first meeting held on this occasion was chaired by Ajit Talukdar, president of the Chandramohan Sarma Smriti Raksha Samiti. Ten teachers and some other employees who worked with the great teacher were felicitated in the meeting. The souvenir published on this occasion was formally released by Thaneswar Malakar, Deputy Commissioner of Barpeta, and Dr Basanta Kumar Bhattacharya addressed the meeting as the distinguished speaker.

In the second session, veteran scientist and a member of the Indian Antarctica expedition Raghab Chandra Deka elaborated his experience. Narrating about the geographical and geological structure of the Himalaya region, Deka informed that Himalaya is said to be a live mountain and it is still growing. As a result, there is a chance of a great earthquake in the remote future in this region which may annihilate the geography of Nepal.

It may be mentioned here that Chandramohan Sarma worked in Sarthebari High School during the period from June 11, 1947, to November 10, 1976. During his tenure as the headmaster, the school excelled in all respect.
