Students from Kolkata college visit Dutch heritage in Chinsurah

June 15, 2017

On 21 April 2017 31 students and 4 teachers of the Mrinalini Datta Mahavidyapith college in Birati Kolkata visited Chinsura for one day educational visit. This has been made possible by my idea and motivation, and the cooperation rendered by the India Netherlands Friendship Society. Mr. Ganesh Nandy has constantly remained in touch to welcome the students of our college.

The students saw five Dutch related historical places such as the Dutch cemetery, Dutch artillery building, pillar, Mandal’s House. Students have also administered questionnaires with some local people.

They have prepared a project report about how Chinsura’s people thought about the contribution of Dutch and its restoration.
