BRIEF NOTE
a
aa

The BOTANY CLUB had its earnest beginning in the year 1960-61 under the headship of Dr. K. R. Venkata Subban. The first batch of final post graduate and second batch of post graduate students along with staff constituted the Club. The subscription for the membership was rupees five.

The botany club, a visionary venture by Dr. K. R. Venkata Subban was aimed to create a platform for the student members of the club to eliminate stage fear, interact amidst group and learn and share knowledge beyond horizons.

The seminars not only created accumulation of knowledge in a given topic, both to the presenter and the listener, but also invoked competitive spirit among the students. Apart from Madras Christian College in association with University of Madras only two other colleges, namely The Pachaiyappa College and The Presidency College offered post graduate course in botany. Hence this forum kindled the students to acquire information and knowledge by referring to books and journals from various libraries. Being prestigious platform to pass through students were motivated to work beyond class hours with clear objectives that included research in laboratory and accurate documentation.

Fifty one years of uninterrupted functioning clearly conveys the importance attributed to the BOTANY Club by all the Heads who have succeeded and the staff who have functioned as President of the Club in rotation. Students undergoing post graduate from the department, staff from Madras Christian College and guest from various bodies have ignited the minds and dished out commendable contents some of which had fierce debates too. The nervous beginning that many a student had would still remain nostalgic. For a few this launch pad has sky rocketed them to rewarding careers.

With more than doubling of student enrollment in the PG classes the single seminar each Friday afternoon has evolved into multiple seminars on a given day with prior intimation.. Simultaneously the black board and chalk with charts and diagrams have paved way to electronic presentation with colorful and captivating images and videos to create a lasting impact on the listener.

The 50th and 51st year of the BOTANY CLUB witnessed several interesting programmes that included felicitations for Prof. Dr. K. Venkattasubban and Prof. Crispin Devadas. Further several eminent scientists and academicians from various fields have delivered lectures and ignited the young minds to understand and pursue research.
