On Kudankulam N-plant accident
15/ 05/ 2014
We express our intense grievance in the matter of accident occurred in Kudankulam N- power station on 14/05/2014. Nuclear power is never acceptable. N- Reactor is an accident- prone technology; the radioactive waste unleashed by reactor has no disposal method and the cost of N-power can never be ascertained. Moreover the Kudankulam Nuclear Power plant is an obsolete technology of Russia.
We demand immediate withdrawal of all the running and proposed N-power projects including Kudankulam in India.

Seminer- 'Gene, genetic disorder and health' held on 14th March, 2016 at Ritwik Sadan, Kalyani organized by National Institute of Biomedical Genomics, Kalyani and Bijnan Darbar, Kanchrapara jointly.
The report and review of the seminar—‘Gene, genetic disorder and health’ held on 14th March 2016 at Ritwik Sadan, Kalyani and organized by National Institute of Biomedical Genomics, Kalyani and Bijnan Darbar, Kancharapara jointly is as follows:
Around 650 students of class ten and some teachers of following nine schools of Kalyani locality participated in the seminar.
Majherchar Satyapriya Roy Smriti Vidyapith High school.
Bidhan Chandra Memorial Govt. Girls’ High school.
Ghoshpara saraswati Trust Estate Vidyapith.
Kalyani University Experimental High School.
Sprindale High school.
Chandmari Deshapriya Sikhsyatan.
Chandmari Nagendrabala Balika Vidyalaya.
Sri Dipak Majumder, General Secretary of Bijnan Darbar declared the programme of the seminar to the participants and then Dr. Arup Ratan Baghchi of NIBMG delivered the inaugural speech. Dr.Baghchi in his speech spoke of the objective and activity of NIBMG briefly.
Discussion was held in three phases. In the first phase, Swapan Sil of Bijnan Darbar Discussed on ‘The Brief History of Origin of Life and Living Kingdom on Earth’ with the projection of 22 relevant slides.
In the second phase, Dr. Moulinath Acharya of NIBMG discussed on ‘evolution of life’ with special emphasis on its mechanism with the projection of relevant slides.
In the third phase, Dr. Srikanta Goswami of NIBMG discussed on ‘Genetic Disorder and Its Effect on Health’ with the projection of relevant slides.
Before inauguration song of Sri Sudip Dostider of Halisahar Bijnan parisad and in between discussions recitation of Sri Niladri Biswas were capable of creating a pleasant atmosphere pushing the monotony of lecture afar, at least for some moments.
The content of all the three discussions were scientifically sound and related to one another. Obviously the most important discussion was held in the third phase.
The total time consumed by the discussions was around three hours. During this period of time there appeared a lot of scientific terms, comments and definitions a small part of which is likely to be known previously to the participant-students. So it may be that all the participant-students might have not followed the entire discussions with uniform patience over three hours. But it is fact that crossing the barrier of syllabus, the discussions had been capable of raising the inquisitiveness of the participant-students in the matter of gene, genetic disorder and its impact on life process.
In the development of science awareness and research-centric mentality among the students such seminar holds a great deal of importance and in the coming days it may be repeatd in other schools.
