Krishna Kanta Handiqui: A Brief Profile

An illustrious son of Assam, Professor Krishna Handiqui is one of the greatest Sanskritists and one of the greatest Indologists of the World, and above all, an educationist with uncommon ability and vision. During his life time he became a legendary figure and even to-day the very name K.K. Handiqui Stands for all the good and great qualities of a Saintly person. A man given completely to profound study and never bothering about popularity, power and fame Handique was a strict disciplinarian in the domain of educational administration. He always thought of getting quality rather than quantity.

From 1930 to 1948 Handiqui served as the founder Principal of the Jorhat Jagannath Baruah College, which was the first non-government degree college of the entire North-East region of India. From 1948 to 1957 Prof. Handiqui served as the founder Vice-Chancellor of the University of Gauhati, the oldest University of the entire North-East region of India. Addressing the young graduates in the first convocation of the Gauhati University held in 1951 he said : ” I need not remind them of then nascent responsibilities and the great tradition they have to carry forward as worthy citizens of India. They must remember that it is not degrees but character and the purity of the heart that will entitle them to the dignity of man. In a world full of temptations they have to keep their balance and resist the forces of evil.” Inaugurating the convocation Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan rightly remarked, ” Your Vice-Chancellor is not only a Vice-Chancellor but also a great scholar” Handiqui adopted the same recruitment policy as Sir Ashutosh Mookherjee did in the Calcutta University, viz., to recruit the best qualified persons as teachers from any part of India, irrespective of cast, creed or community. This put the University not only on a sound footing but also enhanced its prestige. Under his strong leadership, this institute grew from strength to strength. In 1952 Handiqui was elected the President of the Inter-University Board of India.He presided over the Vice-Chancellors’ conference at Madras University and the annual conference of the Board at Waltair, Andhra in the same year.
