It was the Real start
When you are in 9th or 10th standard what did you think most about?Girls! (O.K,it is your studies also if you are so studious).If you can believe girls were the reason for establishing a club that has already been lasted for long 11 years.
In West Bengal we have a ritual called Saraswati Puja.Saraswati is the Goddess of Knowledge.So people,mostly the students worship her to have good marks or grades in the examination.
In our town most of the pretty girls study in Mission Girls' High school. (Now you know why the schoolgate is crowded with guys.) Our friend community consisted of boys from two top schools of the town --
Midnapore Collegiate School and Ramkrishna Misson Vidyabhaban.
After the school hours we used to play and chat in a ground which is at the heart of the town,Burgetown.It was early January of 1989 when we got the surprising good news.The girls were going to arrange the Saraswati Puja in front of the ground.
All the girls will be roaming around us for 48 hours.The only thing is,we'll have to be there.The immidiate response from us was to set up a club and have a puja in front of them.This new born club is todays Midnapore Selection.
