We tend to ignore what we have, to pine for what we want. The beautiful interactive session ended with a heartfelt thanks from the Pro-Vice Chairman to all the staff and students for standing like a tall pillar in all these years, especially to the staff who have been here for 25 long years.

  • “One individual may die for an idea, but that idea will, after his death, incarnate itself into a thousand lives.”

    This is also true for the power of education and freedom in our lives, which help us reincarnate a million more lives and smiles across the borders. The 77th Independence Day similarly reincarnated a new era of hope, optimism, gratitude and pride in one’s identity and nationality as we all paid our humble tribute to the unsung heroes of Indian Independence. The students of classes III to XII turned up in huge numbers to witness the hoisting of the Indian flag, to immerse themselves into the melody of the patriotic songs that bring out a sense of respect and love for the motherland, to applaud the various performances depicting the struggles of our valiant heroes. The day also witnessed various activities like Slogan writing, Collage making and Poster making where the students expressed their heart to show their pride and love for the country. The grandeur of the day unfolded with the cultural events, highlights being the spectacular speech by Ashima Garg of XII-C and a patriotic poem by Pratyush Singh of X-A emphasizing on our roles as Indians, our pride in our national identity, why we are no less than any other global force. It also saw a heart-wrenching and yet encouraging mime on the emergence of leaders like Gandhiji and Netaji during the most clouded period of Indian freedom struggle.

    The event was a double celebration for us as it also marked the 25th anniversary of DPS Aligarh. The journey of a million miles which was started by Shri Pavan Jain in 1998 with just 187 students has reached its apex of success, all because of the hard work, dedication and commitment of its members. This was beautifully emphasized by our esteemed Chief guest, Pro-Vice Chairman, Mr. Swapnil Jain as he got nostalgic speaking of the first day in this school, and how the institution has moulded thousands of lives since then. The Director of Pavna Group, Mrs. Priya Jain was also left spell-bound by the immense talent of the students here. The speeches from the Chief guest and the Principal were the cherry on the cake which reminded us to remain grateful, grounded and humble in all situations of life. The honorable Principal, Mrs. Arti Jha reminded us of our achievements as Indians, of being the 5 th largest economy of the world, of being one of the most revered nations for its intelligence, unity and sacrifice. She illustrated how the sacrifice of these heroes shouldn’t be remembered with tears in our eyes, but with a broad chest and head held high, with pride and love. On the other hand, Pro-Vice Chairman, Mr. Swapnil Jain reminded us that it’s never enough to just attain freedom from a foreign force, especially at an age when we are still bonded laborers of technology.

    When we can spend our time interacting with our friends, family or colleagues, we choose to spend it on social media talking to people sitting miles away from us. We tend to ignore what we have, to pine for what we want. The beautiful interactive session ended with a heartfelt thanks from the Pro-Vice Chairman to all the staff and students for standing like a tall pillar in all these years, especially to the staff who have been here for 25 long years.
