Prof. Jasodhara Bagchi
Founder President of Gokhale Memorial Girls' College Alumni Association
The first time I met Jasodharadi was at a meeting of a feminist organization in the courtyard of the house of the Karlekars and Nalini Das, which was a homely affair. It is not what she had said that I remember now but the song she had sung with full-throated ease: "Aami Chitrangada, aami rajendranandini; nahi devi, nahi samanya naari" (I am Chitrangada, heir to the King; neither goddess nor just a woman). Her rendering gave the song new meaning and resonance for me.
Since then, this has happened again and again over the last thirty or so years whenever I heard her sing familiar or unfamiliar songs - like when she sang "aamar mukti aaloy aaloy, ei aakashe..." (My freedom lies in this sky, this light) at a street-corner meeting held to protest against the incarceration of Dr. Binayak Sen. Read More [PDF]

TWO-DAY ONLINE COUNSELLING SESSION
As part of the Students' Week Programme, an initiative of the Government of West Bengal, Gokhale Memorial Girls' College Alumni Association in collaboration with the Students' Welfare Sub-committee, Gokhale Memorial Girls' College organized a two-day online Counselling session for the students of Gokhale Memorial Girls' College titled 'Mental Health Concerns of the Youth in the Pandemic: Chaos, Challenges and Coping' on 5th and 6th January, 2022.

Sreetama Chatterjee, members of the Alumni Association and Clinical Psychologists associated with the Department of Clinical Psychology, Institute of Psychiatry (Centre of Excellence), Institute of Post-graduate Medical Education and Research (IPGMER), Kolkata counselled the students in the two sessions separately to address the problems of the students and help them overcome the difficulties which impacted their lives in various ways.
The sessions were very informative and inspiring at a time when students were struggling to keep themselves physically and mentally stable. Family's plight and its impact on the youth was discussed in depth which would surely help the students to adapt to the crisis, author responses and control reactions at times of distress. Ways of managing problems, coping with uncertainties and emotions were wonderfully expressed. The counsellors' suggestions and advice to the problems of the students would surely be given cognizance to in order to come out of the crisis.
