“One among countable people I admire is Dr. Ranjan Kalita (Ranjan da), the Principal of Rangapara College situated in the district of Sonitpur, Assam. I met him in the year 1986 as one of my senior Roommate. Since then we have been maintaining a very cordial and homely relationship. After Completing his Masters and Ph.D from Gauhati University in Assamese he joined as Lecturer in the department of Assamese at Tezpur College and serving almost 25 years as teacher before joining as Principal at Rangapara College. Besides a good Administrator, he is also a good Academician, writer, researcher and a very good human being. He has published several high quality Research papers in reputed Journals, Book chapters and popular writings in various magazines. As a socially sensitive person he has also been Associated with various Social as well as academic Bodies rendering selfless service for the development of the society. As of now, in spite of his heavy administrative workload, he has been guiding six numbers of research scholars for their Ph.D. degree under Gauhati University. Under his able leadership Rangapara College is progressing towards excel. I hope almighty will bless him always to continue his good work."
