Hooghly Women's College - HWC Hooghly - HWC

The human habitation named Hooghly-Chinsurah stands as an age old witness to the perennial ebb and tide of the Ganga, also named as Hooghly River. Besides being an ancient town, it has a rich cultural legacy. With the effusive efflux in the greatest river of India close to it, Hooghly-Chinsurah has a fountain head of an opulent and affluent culture and education. The alluring charm of her riches attracted the Pathans, the Mughals, the Portugueses, the Dutches, the Armenians, the French and English in various phases of her history. Interestingly enough, one locality of Hooghly-Chinsurah, even in 21st century is still “Mughaltuli”. Hooghly as a district was formed in 1749 sq.km. The importance of the place can be ascertained in the historical event of setting up of Bengal’s first railway from Howrah to Hooghly, inaugurated on 15th August, 1854.Western education began to sprout up in the eastern region of India with the establishment of a school in Hooghly by the Portuguese Jesut priests in 1598. The French Jesuits opened a college in Bandel chiefly with the objective of teaching theology. However, it is the first college in the entire eastern region of India. From the endowment granted by the Trust after the name of Hazi Mohammad Mohsin, who was a living legend for his astounding wisdom, munificence, charity and generousity, were founded Chinsurah Imambara Hospital, the Imambara Hooghly Madrasah and Hooghly College, The all pervading enthusiasm for the western education made the way for the foundation Hooghly College at present Hooghly Mohsin College in 1856.In 1926 was founded Banimandir Balika Vidyalaya. This  time, no more the foreign nuns, the local enthusiasts came forward to disseminate education among women. The medium of instruction in the school changed from English to vernacular in Balika Siksha Mandir. Dr. Prosad Das Mallick, a pioneer in the field of spreading education among women, established Binodini Girls School at Ghutiabazar, Hooghly after the name of his late wife. With the onward march of time, the tradition of Women’s education became more healthy and enriched. This came to a summit with the establishment of a Women’s college in Hooghly.
