Sripati Jena appears to be a very different type of student leader, truly secular, spiritual and very strong motivational skills. But where did he get his education?
Sripati Jena studied in Christ College Cuttack and had his schooling in R. N. High School, Rajkanika, Kendrapara. He was the most popular President of Students Union of Christ College. During his time because of his involvement he brought in a revolution among students across college campuses in Odisha, particularly in Cuttack, Bhubaneswar, Puri, Jajpur, Kendrapara and Bhadrak.
Saw comments today when I was just searching internet found his name and many people have responded, but volumes can be written about Sripati Jena. His family lived in Cuttack and remember Asit Jena, Lulia and Bunu his brothers should have some more information about Sripati bhai's educational background.
Sripati Jena dided very young, although 2/3 years senior to me. Whatever I know about him during my college days is that he was a great student leader. He had numerous abilities in motivating and guiding young minds. He was truly a saint. His words I can never forget. His guidance, touch and level of motivation can make everyone accomplish a purpose. His death was also a great shock for all of us. I could not believe that he is no more in this world.
Sripati Bhai (Sripati Jena), was a hero, I have never seen such a great person like him. He was a ardent follower of Swami Vivekananda and quite learned and indepth knowledge about indian culture, society and politics. His death was a great loss to the entire state and nation. I remember his last journey from SCB Medical College to the funeral ground near Kali Temple at Cuttack. People those who have seen that could imagine the popularity of Sripati Jena. I and all my friends, Rajesh, Minati, Pratap, Deepak, Raj Kishore, Kanhu and Manoj all used to follow him blindly. Long live his legacy. When I saw people doing something on Sripati Jena's name, all those memories getting refreshed again.
