Principal Wishes (Dr. Aswinee Kumar Supakar. Reader (SS) in Pol. Sc.)
The chiaroscuro of the bygone four decades betokens still more travails awaiting this institution for a student of the equilibrium one can envisage. A moment's thought obviates the indispensability of united efforts and co-operation above all individuals differences. The approaching years beckon to us all come together and strive heart and soul so as to transform this now struggling hub of higher education into a citadel of enlightenment standing on the wood environed outskirts of an industrial township.
Late noble thoughts come to us from every side. Let us be up and daring and set our shoulders to the wheel to bring about academic, extracurricular, ethical and infrastructural excellence and feel sense of pride to shout in a chorus: WE BELONG TO HIRAKUD COLLEGE.
