When Loreto De­gree Col­lege, where I was head of the de­part­ment of English, de­cided to close the de­gree sec­tion, the then CM Hem­vati Nan­dan Bahuguna asked Begum Habibul­lah to form the Avadh Ed­u­ca­tional So­ci­ety as pres­i­dent and take over the col­lege sta­tus quo. She got to­gether a ded­i­cated group of peo­ple and started the Avadh Girls’ De­gree Col­lege in 1975. With her im­mense ca­pa­bil­i­ties, she took the col­lege from one height to an­other.
