GENESIS OF INDIA CULTURE LEAGUE
India Cultural League was founded in 1942 by a small group of young people in the
leadership of Late Shri. Amalendu Roye with the objective of inculcating the spirit of
patriotism in the youth through cultural and sports activities. The organization was called
“Youth Culture Centre” and had the motto of “Unity and Progress through Culture”. After
independence it was re-christened as “India Cultural League” which since then is actively
promoting Art, Music, Drama, Dance, Sports and Education.
Right from 1942 ICL has been conducting many grand programs like, “All India Athletic
Meet”, “All India Cultural Conference”. “Music Concerts”, “Dance Programs” etc. Music
competitions are held every year in Shanmukhananda Hall in various genres of Indian
Classical Music, both vocal and instrumental.
In the world of sports, particularly in the history of football culture in Mumbai, ICL has
played a significant role by winning many prestigious championships. To name a few ,
Harwood Football in 1951-52, IFA Shield in 1953, and Ram Varma Memorial Tournament
ICL entered the educational field in 1975 with the formation of “India Culture League
Education Society” (ICLES). It chose Vashi, Navi Mumbai as its “Karma Bhoomi” to cater to the
educational needs of the wards of "Project Affected Families” (PAF) of CIDCO, the wards of Koli
Samaj and the wards of thousands of families from all over India who have chosen the fast
growing Navi Mumbai as their home.
The ICL Junior college was started in 1978 and the degree college in 1984. The ICL High school
and Mon Ami School started in 1980. The NMMC has lauded the contribution of our founder
by naming the road opposite to the college as “Amalendu Roye Marg”. In 1998 under the able
leadership of Shri R.S. Jhunjhunwala, the college was renamed as “Motilal Jhunjhunwala
Today, our college has achieved the status of a premier institution of Navi Mumbai through
dedicated and devoted services of many stalwarts who were and are associated with our
institution. We have the proud privilege of being associated with eminent Indians like Justice
Bhagawati, Justice Tendulkar, Justice Lentin and leading film personalities like Bimal Roy,
S.D. Burman, Manna Dey, Basu Bhattacharya (our ex-president) and many more.
From culture to freedom movement, to sports to education, India Culture League has come a
long way. We carry on the spirit of our founder members and continue to play a catalystic
role in spreading the education and carry on the mission of “Education Maketh Man”.
"Education Maketh Man" has been the beacon guiding us over the years. In the fourth year
of accreditation, we have reviewed our aims and objectives and adopted more specific,
pragmatic and focused MISSION and GOALS to realise our VISION of "Enlightenment of
Human spirit through Education".
