Glimpse into the Past

Niranjan Agarwala was born on 2nd May, 1923. His parents were Dhirendra Nath Agarwala, a pioneer in the tea plantation industry in Assam, and Bijoya Agarwala. Being the eldest son of this culturally affluent family whose ancestors traveled all the way from Churu district of Rajasthan to settle in Assam via Tezpur, therefore it was natural to assume that he was brought up in a lap of luxury. Yet he was very honest and hardworking. He was very compassionate to the poor and the sick always offering his help wherever he could .

He studied up class VII in George Institution, Dibrugarh and completed his high school studies from the Dibrugarh Govt. High School. While the struggle for Independence was gaining momentum in our country, Niranjan contributed whole- hearted service towards this movement. Under the influence of his great uncle Rupkonwar Jyoti Prasad Agarwala the great poet, litterateur, revolutionary, freedom fighter, play right, pioneer film-maker ofAssam, Niranjan devoted himself as an active member of the student union and he shone like a star. He stressed the importance of the use of Khadi. He realized the need to eradicate the use of opium amongst the youth and so urged them to be self employed to brighten their future. In this regard, he organised Seva Dals and took keen interest in the proper development of the Assamese youth. Niranjan was an intellegent student and a keen lover of sports. He went to Cotton College, Guwahati for his further education. At cultural functions in college, he manifested his talents in playing instruments like Harmonium and the Violin. He was also very fond of cross word puzzles. It was in debates/seminars, that he performed brilliantly.

From Guwahati, his educational career took him to Banaras Hindu University. He was elated to find his bosom friend, the honorable Bhupen Hazarika occupying the hostel room(No.112) near his own room(no.114). Years later in the word of Bhupen Hazarika, while on his visit to Niranjan Children Home now Niranjan School on the eve of the Silver Jubilee, 24-4-1993.niranjan school testimony

“Niranjan was my bosom friend in Benaras Hindu University. I still remember his wonderful smile aid the sincerity about aesthetic tastes.

I am told the silver Jubilee of NCH would be celebrated in 1994.

I wish I could be present then. 1 promise my presence on that day.

“Long Live Niranjan”

Bhupen Hazarika, 24.4.93

After his death in 1968, Reba Agarwala, traversing through memories of Niranjan decided to open a school in his name ensuring that his memory should be everlasting in society. This school would be her tribute, her Taj Mahal, in his memory.

On 14th August, 1969 she opened “Niranjan Children Home” in her husband’s memory- a Montessori School in English medium for children of the age group two and a half-year to 6 years. N.C.H was inaugurated by Chief Justice and V.C. of Kurukshetra University, Delhi, Shri S.K Dutta. Starting with only three children, it was looked after by Reba, who was the Principal/ Secretary of the school, Headmistress Mrs. Pumima Hazarika and teacher Mrs. Pramilla Ahuja assisted by a fourth grade employee to keep the campus clean. Soon after between the period of 1969-71, Nursery and K.G classes were opened. In the following years classes upto 9th standard were introduced. In the year 1987, a memorable day in the life of Niranjan Children Home, the first batch of Matriculation students passed with a 100% success in results and till today, by the grace of the mighty Lord, the school has maintained its distinction of building first class students who have diligently served our society and our country all through out the years.

The name of the school has been changed to Niranjan School in the year 2012.
