Rimon was the only son of Mr.
Bharat Chandra Tamuly & Mrs. Jyotikana Tamuly. This is the story of the
brave child Ripunjoy Tamuly who was suffering from DMD and had a
lifetime confinement in the wheelchair. It is a muscular disorder
characterized by progressive degeneration of all the voluntary muscles
of the body. But Rimon, had far from given up, he was a pillar of
strength….. the strongest there ever was. It was young Rimon who was
suffering all the pain with all the happiness and that brought us all
back to life. He stood strong in times of all this distress and did not
give it up for anything. He made most of the opportunity for being
bed-ridden and put in all the efforts to prove the world wrong.
In spite of his severe physical disability he took up all of
life’s challenges bravely always with a smile in his lips. In his short lifespan
of 17 years he managed to complete his schooling with flying colours. He was the
proud receipent of a congratulatory note alongwith a “Knowledge card’’ for his
academic endeavours from His Excellency Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, the then
President of India made us all proud. He marked as the pride of Assam. Children
looked up to him as an idol, parents used him as an example for their children.
He enrolled in the local Biswanath college in the Arts stream but unfortunately
he could not pursue his studies and left for heavenly abode on 12th March, 2007
His dream of pursuing his studies further inspired his mother,
who is also a Lecturer at Biswanath college, to sponsor one
economically weak student to pursue studies in the Arts stream
every year. Further, his parents have left no stone unturned to
keep his memories alive among the students of Biswanath college
and also the small wellknit community of Biswanath chariali. His
father, Mr. Tamuly has managed to take out time from his busy
schedule as an Executive Engineer of ASEB and devote himself
mentally and physically to construct a seminar hall in the
Biswanath college campus itself. Both of them managed to pool in
all their resources and have put in their lifetime savings to
give shape to their dream project. They also had to borrow money
from different financial institutions to complete the project
christened “Ripunjoy Knowledge Hub”.
On this 25th day of November 2009, which was the birthday of Ripunjoy, the
project stands complete in all respect and has been dedicated to the people of
Biswanath chariali for Academic Activities .
It is the ardent wish of Ripunjoy’s parents that the hall should be utilized
exclusively for Academic activities only to the fullest in the years to come.
Certainly, this will be the only due acknowledgement to the hard work and
labour of these brave souls for their such a noble contributions in the Academic
arena of this region .
