Saying about a favorite faculty would be wrong as all our teachers have contributed the best in their own way .
Being a Dahanukarite for so many years , some of the best memories of my life are from this college. The happiest moment was all the three outstation IV’S , those days just cannot be explained through words.
The saddest memory is yet to arrive, that is when I would leave this college in a couple of months after my graduation.. These years will always play a major role on my entire life.
