Kolkata, (C.M. Paul) — A UK based author is writing the History of Salesian College [Sonada and Siliguri]. The author, an SCS alumnus and former lecturer at SC Sonada has already published six books, some of which have plots and characters set in the Himalayan foothills of Darjeeling, Sonada and Kurseong. They include two biographies entitled “A Bumpy Ride: Chasing a Dream,” and “Boyhood Trials Shape the Chindt,” as well as a novel “The Singh Saga: A Mountain Tale.”
The author says, “The volume explores anecdotal ‘history’ which everyone, who has been associated with Salesian College, should treasure.”
The project marking 75 years of SCS is the idea of Principal Fr George Thadathil SDB assisted by the Alumni Association of the College, especially the Siliguri group. They have uploaded a questionnaire on the Facebook page as well as the website of the College.
