WELCOME TO DEROZIO MEMORIAL COLLEGE
Henry Louis Vivian Derozio, the doyen of the Young Bengal Movement, was the first Anglo-Indian poet of the nineteenth century colonial regime. He was a fiery Indian teacher and poet. As a lecturer at the Hindu College of Calcutta, he invigorated a large group of students, the Young Bengal group, to think independently; this group went on to play a key role in the Bengal Renaissance. Born in 1807, he has left behind him a creditable body of English verse. He was half-Indian and half-Portuguese by blood but he was wholly Indian in spirit. Had fate not taken away his life at a tender age, he could have easily become India’s national bard. As a token of respect for this dynamic poet and educationist, the only college of Rajarhat-Gopalpur Municipal area was named ‘Derozio Memorial College’. Set up in 1996 with the spontaneous co-operation of local inhabitants and the sustaining effort of Rajarhat-Gopalpur Municipality, the college aspires to propagate the idea of this noble philosopher.
