NJC Barkur, on right track of the revival of its great glory

As aware, the National Junior College, Barkur, once the only High School and later a Junior College, was established in the year 1946, has been famous for many first time experiments and success, since last 75 years. Its success story has been recorded basically in three faces – Great and unparallel 25 years under its one and only founder Head Master Shri PN Bhoja Rao. Then came another wonderful 25 years under the most respected gentleman Principal Shri B Seetharama Shetty.

The recent 25 years marked by many ups and downs – since the success of an Educational Institution fairly related to who will lead it and for how long….? This phase has seen many Principals in Shri Venkatraman Aithal, Shri Shankernarayana Aithal and few more for short duration to the incumbent Shri Kotrasmami.  No doubt. all of them contributed in their own capacities and strengths. However, for an external observer, or to its onetime alumnae, it looks that such a great Institution in NJC, why it is lagging behind to match with its historical past glory….!?

The Diamond Jubilee year offered all these beneficiaries and well-wishers an opportunity to plan for the revival of their alma mater and the process has been started. As the office bearers of Barkur Educational Society, NJC Old Students Association & all important Jubilee Celebrations Committee claimed the support and encouragement has been spectacular and spontaneous.
