“The important thing is that we must be constantly moving forward—yes, towards the progressive realization of a pre-determined goal.”—Og Mandino

Delhi Public School Vasant Kunj held a spectacular ceremony on 15 October 2022 to inaugurate the newest addition to its existing impressive infrastructure- the Multi-Purpose Hall. This is yet another achievement for the institution, in its endeavour to provide holistic education.

The magnificent edifice is comprised of a stately auditorium with a seating capacity of 800, 150 of them being balcony seats, a huge indoor all- weather swimming pool, spacious indoor badminton and tennis courts along with a double basement parking which can accommodate a total of 110 vehicles.

The Inauguration Ceremony commenced with the arrival of the esteemed Chief Guest Shri V.K Shunglu, Padma Bhushan, Honourable Chairman of the Delhi Public School Society. Shri B.K Chaturvedi, Vice Chairman of the Delhi Public School Society and Shri Ravi Vira Gupta, Chairman, Managing Committee, Delhi Public School Vasant Kunj graced the occasion as the Guests of Honour. Several eminent guests including Shri Kailash Gahlot, Minister of Transport and Environment, Delhi Government, distinguished members of the DPS Society, the Principals of various Delhi Public Schools, Smt. Madhu Shunglu and PTA members were also present on the auspicious occasion.

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”  The inauguration plaque was unveiled following the cutting of the ribbon by the Chief Guest, the Guests of Honour and other illustrious dignitaries, marking the onset of a new stimulating chapter for the school.

Thereafter, the eminences lit the ceremonial lamp of knowledge and wisdom, with the mellifluous invocation of Goddess Saraswati playing in the background.

The school orchestra, Naad, presented an ensemble of soulful, patriotic melodies- ‘Saare Jahan Se Accha’ and ‘Ae Mere Watan Ke Logo,’ leaving the audience mesmerised.

 “Though music transcends language, culture and time, and though notes are the same, Indian music is unique because it is evolved, sophisticated and the melodies are defined.” The school choir welcomed the audience warmly with their enchanting rendition of ‘Swagatam,’ composed by Anuradha Marathe.

Smt. Deepti Vohra, Principal, D P S Vasant Kunj, the guiding light of the institution welcomed the august gathering. She also thanked the Director, D P S Vasant Kunj, Smt. Bindu Sehgal for her unstinted support in the fruition of this dream project. Shri V. K. Shunglu, in his address appreciated the consistent diligence of the entire school fraternity for executing the “excellent project.’’ Shri Ravi Vira Gupta also commended the “herculean” efforts of everyone involved in the initiative.

 The Welcome Dance-Ganesh Vandana invoked the blessings of the God of wisdom with the reverberating sound of the accompanying drums casting a spell over the audience.

The piece dѐ resistance of the Ceremony was ‘Navrasa’; an enthralling in-house choreography with a staggering 450 students, from classes IV to XII, depicting the confluence of the nine emotions that dictate the canvas of human life; love, laughter, compassion, courage, anger, disgust, fear, wonder and tranquility. The symphonic movements of the zealous dancers enunciated each of these nine emotions and their performances resonated with each and every member of the audience.

The Vote of Thanks was proposed and the momentous Inauguration Ceremony concluded with the National Anthem being sung in unison by the congregation.
