About Us


Mahishbathan is the name of a village in Karimpur-II Development block under the jurisdiction of Tehatta Sub-Division in the district of Nadia in West Bengal. A group of people with positive thinking felt the need of the spread of education among the boys and girls of the village and its adjacent localities. Late Kshirod Mohan Sarkar took the leading role in this respect. With the assistance and guidance of a few benevolent people he set up a school to remove the ignorance and illiteracy of people of the locality on January 4 1962. The magnanimous Kshirod Mohan Sarkar named the school Mahishbathan Manoj Mohan Vidyamandir to immortalize his beloved brother Manoj Mohan Sarkar. It started its journey as a 2 class junior High school with effect from 01.01.1962(Memo no. 17728/G dated 15.11.62).
