Born in the late nineteen twenties to a middleclass family in (then) British India, Prashant Mukherjee had a keen interest to study Law, and was elected for the DSP rank in the police department. He soon realised the discriminations an Indian had to face in their own country when they asked for basic rights such as education. He therefore rejected the offer, to fight for the freedom and equality of his countrymen. He had a vision to impart education to not only the elite classes but especially to the ones who were deprived and underprivileged. After gaining inspiration from his visit to Moscow, Russia, he commenced the idea here in Dumka, to kindle the light of Education & Knowledge.
