About the College:

After the historic visit of Mahatma Gandhi, the father of the nation, to Contai (1925), the magnanimous humanist Late Babu Biswambhar Dinda, a benevolent Zamindar of the locality endeavored to establish the Prabhat Kumar College, Contai on the 15th Day of July 1926 in memory of his only loving son Late Prabhat Kumar Dinda.

The College was satisfactorily assessed and accredited & reaccredited by the National Assessment & Accreditation Council (NAAC) of the University Grants Commission (UGC) in 2015 with B++ Grade. In 2016, a new feather has been added in the cap with the College being recognized by the UGC as “College with Potential for Excellence”.

Recently the college has got the status of “Research Centre for Humanities & Social Science for perusing quality research having socio-moral relevance.

We gratefully acknowledge the cooperation, continued support, assistance and unstinted patronage from all associated stakeholders with the College.


Theme of the Seminar :

The proposed topic of the Seminar in the Department of Philosophy of the College seems to have a wide coverage that is taken into account. The three concepts (Tradition, Religion and Morality) , as stated in the topic, do have different connotations, on the basis of analysis and reasoning , do refer also to some similarity.  “Tradition “is originally an English word. Its lexical meaning and also meaning in usage shows multiple suggestions and their usages are determined contextually. So also it goes with the neighboring concepts: Religion and Morality. There are different meaning in usage and all such conceptual uses, depending upon occurrences and situations.

In Indian classical traditions one comes across of Sanskrit language shows as the basic one, though the meaning contained in that linguistic source has been adopted (with little variations) amidst certain similarities of course in number of other linguistics. However,groups, such meaning despite the outward similarities, refer to certain meaningful differences and divergences, mostly depending upon cultural heritage. The discussion, to be takenup in the Seminar, is hoped to the quite fruitful and productive keeping in mind with the socio moral relevance in the present day -to -day life. It specially helps the inquisitive future students and researchers in different social disciplines.
