Raidighi College, situated by the largest mangrove of the world, strives continually towards enlightening the inhabitants of this remote, rural landscape – with the dream of spreading higher education among the needy enthusiasts belonging to the Schedule caste and tribes, mostly. A view into their daily choirs would place the matter in a more appropriate perspective. Raidighi is surrounded by a number of rivers, river-inlets and dense vegetation of the Sunderbans that nurture a large number of floras and faunas, the most beautiful and the fiercest of them being the Royal Bengal tiger, obviously. Hence, inhabiting for almost hundred years now, the people of this land live perpetually on a trapeze, with life and death on either side.
