It was in November 1981 that Mahatma Gandhi College was established at Lalpur, Purulia. From the date of foundation it is absolutely clear that the college is reasonable a new one. But what began as a tiny seed grew onto a reasonably moderate tree sheltering now more than 150 students in its various department. It was in recognitions of a sistained endeavour of a number of education loving people which ultimately transformed tottering child into a resolute youth, striding forward to a new horizon of attainments, that on November 25th 2006, teachers, students, localenthusiasts, the district administration assembled to observe with considerable razz-ma-tazz the Silver Jubilee celebration of that cherished youth namely Mahatma Gandhi College.
