It is a great privilege & honour for me to be elected the founding president of the Modern School Vasant Vihar Alumni Association. It is even more special to continue to be associated with this wonderful institution where I have spent some of the best & happiest years of my life. When I had my farewell from school, I was so excited that I am moving on to greener pastures .... a new life ... new friends … a new environment ... finally a new institution and I looked forward to my new journey with great enthusiasm. Years later I have realised that my closest friends, my dearest memories and the strength of my own character are all in some way associated with Modern School - my Alma Mater.
I have taken up this responsibility because I truly believe that we need to build a strong Alumni Association to strengthen this unseen bond that we have with our school and ensure that each Modernite remembers his or her roots and cherishes the school, no mater where they go or what they achieve. The vision of our Association is to have an active body of motivated individuals who will raise the banner of Modernites in the society, as well as contribute to the school to further its legacy. For this we need each and every one of you to participate in your own unique capacity when ever you think your ready.
I am certain that you all will work really hard and gain great success in each of your endeavours and very soon will echo the same sentiment I share:
My School friends are my pride
My School teachers are my guide
My School is an irreplaceable part of me, that I just can’t hide……..
Wish you all the best in your future endeavours.
