“ I have been in the campus as a student, a teacher and principal for the last forty years with interludes of a maximum period of six years for my visits to the USA, UK and USSR and my brief spell as Principal at GM College, Sambalpur and Kahllikote College, Berhampur. I have naturally a deep sentimetal attachment for this college, my Alma Mater….this college is unique of its kind in the whole country.”
Dr Mahendra Kumar Rout in a Commemoration Day speech dated February 3, 1979.

Ravenshaw Gets Its Own Stamp.

This is the Centenary stamp issued by Department of Posts on 24th December 1978. The stamp was inaugurated by Sri BrijLal Verma, Central Minister of Communications, Government of India, inside the campus. Steel and Mines minister Sri Biju Patanaik inaugurated the souvenir published on this occasion. Dr Mahendra Kumar Rout, Principal presided over the meeting. First day cover was also released on the same day.
It was a great occasion for all of us Ravenshavians.
