Sudip: Please post complete solution (or at least an outline on how to solve it). Posting just the answer is strongly discouraged as we can not learn anything from a number, can we?

Moon vai I am posting a soultion,theoritical though,ar pura puri observation er upor prove kora,(observation gular nirghat prove ase but ami janina)so viewers please look for a better solution -

ami amar koyekta observation mention kori( shobari egula jana so skip korleo chole):-
1.last digit 5 hole shetar square(je kono power) e last digit alltime 5 hoy and second last digit hoy 2
2. last digit 6 hole shetar khetreo last digit (1) follow kore but second last digit e ei sequence ta paoa jay
a) second last digit jodi 0 hoy tahole square er por 2nd last digit hobe 3(ofcourese)
b)last two digit 16 hole square er por 56 hoy
c)last two digit 26 hole 76 paoa jai
d)last two digit 36 hole 96 paoa jai ... blah blah blah
point hoilo last two digit jodi (0,1,2,3,4)6 type hoi tahole 2nd last digit hoy 3,5,7,9,1.....(2)
same happenns when(5,6,7,8,9)type hoy tahole loop akare again 3,5,7,9,1 ashe(3)...(program e deksi,really ashe, but kan ashe thikmoton akhono prove kore dekhate pari nai) eita apnara try koren pls....(ei kothagular aktao ami exma hall e liktam na)
$COME$ $TO$ $THE$ $SOLUTION$-
DBC three digit but BCABC two digit , and $(300)^2=90000, 32\times300=9600 + 256= 9856$, kajei number ta 316 xceed korte parbe na.so D(max)=3
metioned above, $(DBC)^2=BCABC$ er mane hoilo c should be either 5 or 6...
case 1
if $C=5$ then
$B=2$ hobe so the equation will be like $(D25)^2= 25A25, 25^2=625$, so $A=6$
Akhon D= 1 hoile B er value 1,2,3 er moddhe, B=2 kajei D er value 1 hobe. Akhon D= 1
hole $(125)^2$ er small part - $10000+2.100.25= 10000+5000=15000+$ ja ashe tai.....
So D= 1 hole B= 2 hobe na, so c=5 hobe na
Case 2-
if c=6 then
b= 1,3,5,7,9 er kisu akta... (2) and (3) explore kore pai
b= 7 hole $BC^2$ er second last digit 7 orfe last 2 digit $76$, kajei $BCABC= 76A76$
akhon D=1 hole B= 1,2,3 , but b=7, D er value 2 hole B er value $[2^2,3^2)=4,5,6,7,8$
So $D= 2$ hole or $DBC =276$ holei all condition fulfil hoy....
SO the result is $D=2$..........

A little information.
if $N=.........25$ then, $N^n=.........25$
and, if $N=..........76$ then $N^n=.........76$
these are the only two numbers of two digits like this.
