Goodbye Dr Ghosh

Seema Jyotishi

It seems like ages, when I try to remember my college days at Patna Women’s College. Two decades is a long time to remember much about everyone but today as I read about the murder of Dr Papiya Ghosh, all those memories started running back in my mind.

Today I feel honored that I was a student of Dr Ghosh while completing my Graduation from Patna Women’s College in the year 1979-81. I was a new student in the College and I feel she had also joined the College recently. I still remember her walk on the corridors. We were charmed with her simplicity and the innovative way of teaching. Learning History was fun for us with her around. I still remember she was one of the Teachers who did not believe in giving notes but rather believed in increasing the interests of her students in the subject.

Thus as I read about the gruesome murder of Dr Ghosh I also feel that we all have lost one of our most beloved Teachers. May God rest her soul in peace and give her family members strength to face this tragedy. I also wish that for once the Police Dept and the Bihar Govt should show enough responsibility to nab the criminals and punish them.

Good bye, Dr Ghosh, I will never forget you.
