To describe Sir’s teaching in a line I would say, he is never sort of a guy dealing with run-of-the-mill or is either bog standard. But he is much more newfangled and he knows the way to hammer the hot iron. Sourin Karmakar
As Einstein Said, "It Is The Supreme Art Of A Teacher To Awaken Joy In Creative Expression And Knowledge", I Proudly Admit That Sir Is One Of Those Whom I Am Very Fortunate To Have In My Life As A Guide, A Teacher And Much More As A Friend. To Describe Sir's Teaching In A Line I Would Say, He Is Never Sort Of A Guy Dealing With Run-of-the-mill Or Is Either Bog Standard. But He Is Much More Newfangled And He Knows The Way To Hammer The Hot Iron. Why I Am Saying That He Knows To Hammer The Hot Iron Is Because He Never Puts Facts And Topics On Board And Asks You To Copy And Memorize That. Rather He Starts With An Introduction Of A Topic And Successfully Builds Up A 'craving Of Knowledge Inside His Students'. And What Follows These Processes Is That You Do Not Listen To Your Teacher As A Task Of An Exam You Need To Fulfill But The Knowledge Comes As A Joy That You Learn Because You Love The Thing. This Process Of Letting His Students Love The Subject That He Is Studying Is Getting Diminished In The Architects Of Our Society Today, Which We Are Lucky Enough To Get In Sir's Presence. I Fondly Remember One Incident When My Grandmother Was Taking Doses Of Duolin. The Medicinal Composition Of Duolin Was Levosalbutamol And Ipratropium Bromide Solution. I Asked Sir Whether This Was A Normal Medication Or A Steroid. Sir Replied Me With A Glare And Asked Me Whether He Had Not Explained Steroids While Dealing With Biomolecular Chapters. I Said Yes And That -ol, -one, Etc. Are Mostly Steroids. Sir Was As Happy As A Lark. Nevertheless That Was A Dull Question From Me But These Emotions Stay Firm In Your Memory Till The Last Day You Live. I Quoted This Incident Just To Share The Way Of Teaching Of The Man Which We Found Paradigmatically Interesting. He Suggested Keywords When We Could Remember Something. Like He Had Said Any Word That Ends With "itis" In Biology Indicates Inflammation. Among Them One Is Meningitis. This Was One Of The Many I Had Learnt From Him. Well This Was All About Biology Till Now. But The Dinkum - Oil Is That This Man Has An Awe Inspiring English Vocabulary, Writes Sonnets Quite Too Often, Have Had A Novel Published Recently, Knows More Than Half A Dozen Languages And Some More Crazy Stuff. On An Ending Note I Would Like To Quote A Poem Of His And One Of My Personal Favorites: "Autumnal Wind Abruptly Slivers Into Sweltering Lordly Summer Ushering Coruscating Hues Of Maple Glister Brambling Redwings Begin To Hummer" That Was All I Had To Say, Sir. From A Meagre, Half Pie Student Of Yours.
Sir has always been a reservoir of resources. Ishani Chowdhury
Coco Chanel Said, “In Order To Be Irreplaceable One Must Always Be Different.” I Started Learning From Sir, When I Was In 9th Grade. I Never Liked Biology As It Included A Lot Of Mugging Up Back Then. I Joined His Tuitions And Each Day My Concepts Changed. Why The Quote In The Beginning You May Ask. Okay, Where Do I Start From? Everything Was So Unique About His Ways Of Teaching. The Way, Sir Named His Tuition Classes As 'Banerjee's', Was In Itself The Most Unique Part. Coming To His Mnemonics, God! They Were Lifesavers. Even Today, While Studying The Names Of Those Cranial Nerves In Psychology, I Am Always The First One To Write All Of Them Serially. Honestly, Through His Beautiful Methods Of Teaching, Sir, Entirely Changed My Approach Towards The Subject. I Started Loving It, Especially Because There Was No More Mugging Up. I Still Remember, Sir Saying, Whenever We Opened Our Books "hey, Please Keep Your Books Inside. I Myself Am One. Take Notes." Surely, He Is. So Knowledgeable! One Can See A Multiple Talents In Him. He's A Teacher, An Artist, A Content Creator, An Expert In Different Languages, A Researcher, A Perfectionist And Perhaps A Whole Lot Of Other Things, I Barely Know. Sir Has Always Been A Reservoir Of Resources. Once You Learn Those, You Can't Unlearn Them. For Example, I Can Still Recollect Many Tricks And Concepts Like '-itis' Meaning Inflammation, 'oma' Meaning Cancer, 'On Old Olympics Towering Tops A French And German Viewed Some Hope' To Remember The Cranial Nerves Serially, '-in' Refers To Protein, 'Sarco' Refers To Muscles, Etc. Sir Never Let The Opportunity Of Teaching Us Practically, With Real Examples, Slip From His Hands. Starting From The Composition Of Whatever He Had Around To Characteristics Of Different Diseases. I Have Never Seen Someone Talking About His/her Sufferings Or Misfortune You May Call (Rheumatoid Arthritis) So Easily, Just To Check If We Remember What 'autoimmune Diseases' Were. Let's Talk About His Efforts In Making Parrots, Like Me Write Short And Crisp Answers, Just To The Point, Using Keywords. His Question Papers Used To Be About One To Two Pages Only. Why? Because He Left The Minimum Amount Of Space To Write Down The Answers There Itself. I Learnt How To Eliminate Unnecessary Information And Just Focus On The Keywords In My Answers. Sir's Uniqueness, His Words, His Styles Have Been Irreplaceable Indeed, All Worth Remembering Throughout. I Have Learnt How To Remember Things For A Long Time, How To Use Tricks To Learn Faster And How To Understand Things Through Diagrams And Flowcharts. No Matter What Kind Of A Learner One Is, Sir's Methods Proved To Suit Everyone Too Well. Are You A Visual Learner? Be Ready To Get Mesmerized With His Diagrams! Those Are The Best. All The Theories And Concepts Were Best Learnt By Me Through These Visuals. If You're An Auditory Learner? Subscribe To His YouTube Channel Asap And Listen! You Learn By Reading And Writing? No Worries. Sir Will Definitely Ask You To Summarize His Notes After Reading Them. Finally, If You Are A Kinesthetic Learner, You'll Have Different Rooms And Even Samples And Many Different Resources. So, You Will Learn By Being Physically Active. To Conclude, I'd Say, It Has Been A Wonderful Journey From Disliking Biology To Falling In Love With It; From Mugging Up Everything To Learning The Importance Of Understanding Concepts; From Dependence On Books To Making My Own Notes And Most Importantly, From Monotony To Uniqueness!
Sir, you were a friend, philosopher and a Guide. I can never thank you enough for the part you played for whatever I have achieved until now. Dr. Snigdhendu Das
"A Teacher Takes A Hand, Opens A Mind And Touches A Heart"- This Is How A Tremendous Influential Role Is Played By A Teacher In Reforming The Society By Just Enlightening The Fire In Someone. The Fire Of Life. I Was A Just Small Kid When I Was Admitted To Your Biology Tution Batches. Henceforth Biology Gave Me An Immense Kick And Made Me Pursue The Profession Of Saving Lives. I Remember Your Picture Perfect Drawings And Explanations For Every Questions Being Asked. I Often Used To Ask Silly Questions But You Were Never Exhausted To Quench My Thirst Of Curiosity. You Scolded Us ,sometimes We Were Terrified To Face Those Rapid Fire Questions ; That Kept Shooting One After Another, Which Were Intense And Breathtaking. Now I Realise That They Were The Perfect Way Of Brainstorming And Building Up A Competitive Spirit In An Individual. The Science Magazine Was On The Other Hand A Benevolent Approach And An Interesting Entity That Mesmerized Me And Many Other Students. I Too Happily Received A First Prize From You From The Quiz Competition In That Magazine, Which Is One Amazing And Unforgettable Moments In My Life. Moreover We Enjoyed The Way You Taught Us Sir, U Were A Friend, Philosopher And A Guide. I Can Never Thank You Enough For The Part You Played For Whatever I Have Achieved Until Now. Thank You So Much Sir... Wish You Good Health Sir Keep Inspiring Us Sir.... Loads Of Love Your Snigdhendu.
Sudipto Sir is one of those teachers you read about in books, immortalise on the silverscreen but few are lucky enough to experience in life. Dr. Srijak Bhattacharya
I Joined Sudipto Sir's Coaching After Quite A Few Dismal Results In Biology In Class 8. People Expected Me To Excel In Biology, Perhaps Because My Parents Were Doctors But I Was Never A Fan Of The Subject. Nor Was I Much Into Any Of The Science Subjects Truth Be Told. I Was Quite Sure That Whatever Subjects I Pursued In My Higher Studies, Physics , Chemistry And Particularly Biology Would Not Be One Of Them. To Say, Sir Changed My Life Would Be An Understatement. Sudipto Sir, Was One Of The Few Teachers Who Made Me Fall In Love With Science And Opened Up A World I Had No Interest In Hitherto. After Every Class I Would Be Amazed At How Alive The Facts From The Anita Desai Book Would Seem. The Wonder That Was Biology Would Hardly Have Appeared As Magical If Sir Had Not Guided Us Through It. He Improved My Analytical Thinking And Taught Me To Question Everything, Which Was The Basic Tenet Of Science. Suddenly Science Was No Longer Scary And I Loved How I Could Use The Things I Learnt To Explain Everything Happening Around Me. Sir Used To Publish A Small Magazine 'science Magic' And All Of His Students Used To Compete To Solve This Little Puzzle At The End And Win The Prize Money. Sir Lent Me My First Robin Cook, Which I Still Maintain Inspired Me To Be A Doctor😅 Punctuality Is Also Something I Always Associate With Sir. Whatever The Season, Sir Used To Be Ready To Start Class At Exactly 6:30am, Something I Never Quite Got To Terms With. Sudipto Sir Is One Of Those Teachers You Read About In Books, Immortalized On The Silver Screen, But Few Are Lucky Enough To Experience In Life.
