Cuttack: Ravenshaw is the Oxford and Harvard of Odisha which has produced gems for years together. The motto of this institution is 'Knowledge is Power' and it has maintained the standard of education for a long time, Trinamool Congress MP Derek O Brien said.

Attending the Alumni Association Memorial Lecture 2019 here on Sunday, Derek said that he had a family connection with Ravenshaw College (University) where his grandfather was a member of faculty after independence.

“My grandfather was the Head of the Department of English for four years between 1948 and 1952. It is an illustrious institution which has completed 151 glorious years. I am privileged to be a guest at the Alumni function of this institution,” the quizmaster turned politician said.
