Ex-Student Brings Laurels to Bodhicariya School


Mr. Shyamal Bikash Chakma


Mr. Shyamal Bikash Chakma was a student of Bodhicariya Senior Secondary School from 1997 till 2007. It is a matter of pride for the School that Shyamal has been selected for the prestigious Felix Scholar (2016-17) to pursue MPhil/PhD in Development Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London in London, UK. It is worth mentioning that Shyamal’s true schooling started only once he set foot in Bodhicariya as a small kid. Therefore, it can be said that Bodhicariya has had a significant role in the overall development of Shyamal who overcame many a hurdle in his journey towards academic excellence as it was here that his strong foundation was built. Thereafter, he went on to study at Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) for this Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. During his undergraduate course (BA) at TISS, Shyamal also bagged the Endeavor Student Exchange Scholarship to study at Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia for one semester. On his completion of this programme, he was awarded the International Associate Dean Award for Outstanding International Student at Victoria University. He is also the recipient of Best Research Award for his Master’s degree thesis in the School of Development Studies at TISS. Shyamal is also a widely published author across academic journals and books (upcoming) pertaining to his domain of expertise apart from popular online media and press both national and local newspapers.

This year, i.e., academic year 2016-17, there was only one PhD scholarship from India to study at University of London which Shyamal managed to bag. The selection process is one of the most rigorous processes that take place both in London and India. Felix Scholarship is one of the most prestigious scholarships to study in the UK. Studying at SOAS in London means that Shyamal will be interacting and studying with the best minds of his generation and people around the world.
