Mrs Saroja Pradhan and Umesh Pradhan selected to witness the parade from the Prime Minister’s Box


A total of 100 meritorious students from all over India are invited every year to witness the Republic Day Parade from the Prime Minister’s Box. A moment of great prestige and recognition for the two year old Sikkim University this year as two of its students have been selected to witness the parade from the Prime Minister’s Box. The two students were selected out of the ten names recommended by the Sikkim University.



 Mrs. Saroja Pradhan from Harkamaya College of Education , Tadong, Sikkim
& Mr. Umesh Pradhan from Damber Singh College, Tadong, Sikkim.

Mrs Saroja Pradhan, has done her M Ed from Harkamaya College of Education in the year 200-8-2009, was the topper in her batch scoring 75.88%. She has recently been deputed as Lecturer in the Govt. B.Ed College at Soreng. Umesh Pradhan, a student of Damber Sing College  in the session 2008-09, was also the topper with 71% . He completed his graduation in Library Science.


Umesh Pradhan, a student of Damber Sing College  in the session 2008-09, was also the topper with 71% . He completed his graduation in Library Science. Umesh is presently working as a Library Assistant at the Surendra Institution of Engineering and Management.

Both these students were the first batch to complete their degrees under the new syllabus introduced by Sikkim University. They are also the first batch who were  introduced to the Semester system. Of which both the students are highly appreciative and they feel that the semester system has been a boon in disguise for them. It helped them to be more focused. This system also allows for more interaction between the teacher and the taught.
