Faridabad, Oct 10, 2022:Apeejay Stya Group and Apeejay Education marked the 103rd Birth Anniversary of our beloved Founder-Chairman, Dr. Stya Paul ji. He was a renowned industrialist, educationist, freedom fighter and eminent altruist. His life was a perfect example of how one must fight all odds to achieve greater heights in his life.

Endearingly addressed by the students as Dada ji, Dr. Stya Paul was the chandelier of inspiration for one and all. To mark this special occasion, his favourite bhajans were sung. The programme commenced with an introduction of his personality by one of the students of our school followed by Ganesh Vandana to give an auspicious beginning to the occasion. This was followed by a floral tribute indicating the endless stream of love and respect which flows in the hearts of the students and the school fraternity towards him. The essence of the day was gratitude towards the Founder Chairman who envisioned the school and laid down its vision. Our honourable Principal Ma’am, Mrs. Priti Wason enumerated his unique qualities and stressed upon the need to work tirelessly to achieve our goals as exemplified by Dr. Stya Paul ji. Furthermore, she also shared a special message shared by the President Ma’am, Mrs. Sushma Paul Berlia.

All the celebrations reflected the vision of Dr. Stya Paul ji and his reminiscence fostered enthusiasm in the environment. A group of students performed a dance on the motto of Apeejay Education, ‘Soaring high is my nature’ which filled the hearts of the audience with confidence and zeal to work tirelessly in all their endeavours. Thereafter, the students sang the school song Hum Apeejay ke bachche which poured positive vehemence in the environment.
