It must have been a proud moment for the faculty and staff of the Government Senior Secondary School , Lal Pani, Shimla, when one of its old students, Justice D.P.Wadhwa, former Judge, Supreme Court Of India who is presently heading the Central Vigilance Committee on Public Distribution System , paid a visit to his Alma mater where he had studied from 1948 to 1951 . Such moments fill the present students with inspiration and they feel motivated to do better in life.
Decades back, it was a proud moment for us studying in S.D. Higher Secondary School ( now Sr. Secondary School ) Shimla, when one of its old students, Col. N. Kumar , PVSM, KC,AVSM , FRGS , - an Everester & a name to reckon with in mountaineering came visiting and delivered a lecture in the morning assembly.
It is again heartening to learn that, Anupam Kher , the noted Bollywood actor, always fondly remembers his Alma mater, DAV Sr. Secondary School Lakkar Bazar, Shimla and his student days there.
On the flip side , the other day, I was shocked to find in the Face Book that a class pal of mine in the S.D. School above had mentioned some exotic sounding institution as his school. I do not know what credit it does to him notwithstanding the fact that being a genius of sorts he occupies an enviable position in the corporate world !
