Prajyoti Niketan College - PNCT

Prajyoti Niketan (Pra : Supreme, Jyoti : Light, Niketan : Centre) = Centre of the Supreme Light is a vision of Redeeming Love (God) as Light for life involved in daily struggles, and through them called to grow greater than one’s natural size to divine size (Mt.5.48), e.g. Mahatma Gandhi and Mother Theresa, in the process of becoming original responses to God’s Call, so that the sick, homeless, marginalized (Mt.25.35ff.) and those who generously respond to their cry may have life in its fullness/ wholeness (Jn.10.10). Prajyoti Niketan is an International Centre for Research, Training and Service in Wholistic approach. It is a Registered Christian Charitable Society (Regd.N.806/91). Prajyoti Niketan Society owns and manages its College. In 1994, Dr.K.R.Narayanan, the then Vice-President of India laid the Foundation Stone for Prajyoti Niketan and in 1996, Dr.Sankar Dayal Sharma, the then President of India initiated our Holistic Health Care Facility. The University of Calicut sanctioned Prajyoti Niketan College in 1994. But with the Govt. concurrence we could start it only in 1995. We sensed that courses that are career specific would cause unemployment. Hence, we set up mainly service-oriented and entrepreneurial courses to supply jobs and encourage healthy progress. By dint of hard work our students stand to gain as our Vision, Mission and values shape everything to their advantage; because, from the very inception of this College Holistic Approach had been declared our main thrust. In a concentric move upward through every dimension of life the continuum they form in one’s life make up the basis for total and self-confident growth. In Holistic approach the whole is greater than the sum total of all its parts put together; i.e. the greater powers of a wholesome personality compared to its unwholesome state. It can be written as “Holistic” (Greek) or as “Wholistic” (English). At Prajyoti Holistic approach, thus leads the field and it comes into its own to countermand party politics, strike, ragging and other newfangled trivia. We encourage proactive programmes. For at Prajyoti education means formation of the whole person with excellence. We are reckoned among the best Colleges with the highest Ranks in the University of Calicut; but the First Rank in all the Courses offered was a rare honour Prajyoti alone could claim. Our students have a sense of being at the cutting edge of education. Some of the bright and motivated students find their way to Prajyoti. Here, not always the brightest secure ranks, but the disciplined, within Holistic values, at the direction of their Mentors and those who generously respond with creativity and originality. Students on Management Quota often clawed their way to top notches where together with those on Merit Quota they laid themselves out on an ascending sway. Among them emulation gave way to friendly rivalry and several were set to soar away excellence on mere fractions of a point. Thus we had the best ever results. This phenomenon is eloquent on our Holistic Vision and the ability of our Staff to bring out the best in every student. Dr. Fr. Harshajan Pazhayattil, the Founder-Director of Prajyoti Niketan College is the only one in Asia with a Doctorate in Holisitc approach under Dr.Rollo May (USA), its very Founder. In 2008, J.C.Intern’l conferred on Dr.Fr.Harshajan the award for the best College in the region.
