Thanks to the inspiration and guidance given by Prof. Gopal Ghosh, the then Principal, Fakir Mohan College, Alumni association formally came into being in july 1994. with the overt aim of celebrating the golden jubilee of the college. Prof Prafulla kr. Rath, ex-principal,Fakir Mohan College was the first president. Prof Rath's legal acumen stood the association in good stead when with an untiring zeal, along with Prof. Anjan kr. Das, he drafted the byelaws of the association
which after registration has bseen constitution of the association. Though in the meanwhile Prof Rath has left for his heavely abode (January 2002), because of his able leadership, during it's early years, the association did not flounder in the face of the hurdles that are usual in store for an infant organization. On this occasion we pay our homage and gratitude to Prof. Rath, our founder president.
