Namaste, this very way of greeting denotes the willingness of DAV to maintain the culture and inherit the same in each one of us. With modernisation and rising trends of the western culture, D.A.V still continues to stay firm with the traditional culture and values. This helps in inculcating values and discipline among the students and helps them face the world ahead  with confidence and create a unique place for themselves.

D.A.V moulded me to what I am today. The positive environment of the very place and the teachers are a true source of motivation. They keep telling us about the various opportunities that’s waiting for us, which pushes us towards giving our best. Their style of teaching helped us understand concepts in depth that we are now able to apply the same effectively and efficiently. D.A.V not only taught me to see dreams (set goals), but also taught me how to follow the same and achieve them. One such was being the school topper.

My journey at this institution was both enriching as well as challenging. I shall always cherish the time I spent here, I would proudly like to call it ‘my golden days’. D.A.V has already set really high benchmarks for itself in these 25 years and I am sure that in the coming years it’s just going to get better.

My schooling has been the best journey of my life and I thank DAV and all my teachers for the wonderful memories. Apart from excellent academic experiences, we have also reaped the benefits of various extra- curricular initiatives, organized by our school. DAV has taught us to overcome challenges and dream big in life. I am and will always be grateful to DAV and my teachers for making me the person I am today.

Truly proud to be a D.A.Vian!

Vanakkam! to all my respected Teachers, Staffs and my dear friends.  It has been more than a decade since I had completed my schooling here. But the memories are still afresh in my mind like a morning flower.  That’s the kind of bond DAV gives to all of its students like me. I was privileged to study in DAV only for 2 years, but they were the most memorable and life changing years of my life. I believe the guidance given by the Teachers makes each and every student complete, with courage and self-confidence to face the society. My hearty wishes to the DAV family on its silver jubilee year and wish many many years of successful service. Three cheers to DAV. Proud to be a DAVian.

Namaste everyone..

Congratulations to each and every DAVian on this prestigious occasion of silver jubilee celebrations of our school.

To start with, I was from a small town of Karaikudi.It used to be a dream come true for anyone out there to get an opportunity to study in DAV group of schools. It did happen for me..I studied eleventh and twelfth in the DAV Sr Sec School, Mugappair. The word DAVian itself carries an invisible renowned bright tag wherever you go. Our school has been known for its excellent standard of education and knowledgeable and dedicated teachers. This is evident from the consistent outstanding academic results that we produce every year.

I was also one of the regional toppers in class XII CBSE examinations, which couldn’t have happened without DAV Mugappair and my heartfelt thanks to the school management, the then Principal M.P.Geetha mam, our present Principal(our then Maths teacher..) Malliga mam, Nirmala mam(PGT Biology), Lakshmi mam(PGT Chemistry), Vasanthi mam(PGT Physics), Ruth mam(PGT English) and Radhika mam(PGT computer science).

It rendered me a lot of awards and recognitions including an invitation from the Prime Minister’s office to witness India’s Republic Parade from the Prime Minister’s box. Then I did my B.Tech from NIT Trichy, from where I obtained Gold medal in Instrumentation and Control Engineering. Currently, I am working with NTPC Ltd, India’s largest Energy Conglomerate. This couldn’t have happened without DAV Mugappair and again I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all teachers who have laid a strong foundation for me..

Best wishes to everyone on this occasion of silver jubilee celebrations and many more glorifying years to come. Proud to be a DAVian..

I have the pleasure of re-living my school days while I am writing this article. I passed out from D.A.V. in 2010 and even after eight years, as I walk down the memory lane, I can clearly recollect every classroom, every corridor, our art room, sports room, school uniform, house badges and of course the lovely smiles of all our teachers and staff. I joined as a new student in class 11. My father had a transferable job and this was his first posting in the Southern part of India. Naturally, I was anxious and excited to know more about the culture, the language and the people with whom I was going to spend the next two years. Fortunately, this journey began pretty smoothly. It was the very aura of the school, the sound of the bell, the chanting of mantras during Havan and the selfless love of all the teachers; which gave me immense strength to walk through every single day. I met a few really good-hearted people who actually encouraged me to stand for the post of the house captain (Kalakshetra) within a matter of days after my joining. Surprisingly, I got elected as the captain of my house and everything around me felt so familiar and close to my heart. I was convinced that this school was meant for me and I was meant for this school. I took over a lot of responsibilities - organizing assemblies, hosting cultural events, performing in group dances, playing volley ball and even won a few inter-school debate competitions. Life was moving way faster than I had ever imagined. I began developing a curiosity to learn more about each subject which enhanced the depth of my understanding in the process. I was amazed by the tremendous sincerity of the teachers and the amount of effort they put in to prepare for class lectures, to train us rigorously for upcoming examinations and motivate us constantly to strive for the best.

D.A.V. was a turning point in my academic career. The board examination results are the first stepping stone to the harsh competitive world that eventually all of us face. D.A.V. ensured that my first stepping stone was rock solid. My school took care of me like my own parents. I remember getting scolded for messy handwriting, uneven borders, writing extra-long sentences, making silly mistakes in calculations and so on.  But, I also remember how my teachers applauded even the smallest of achievements and helped me set a higher goal for myself after every examination. I still worship their dedication and strongly believe that without their guidance I would not have been able to achieve anything remotely close to what I have made of my life today. Their preaching have built the very foundation of my strong character, made me trust my abilities, gave me a clearer vision of life and brought out the best in me. Currently, I am pursuing my PhD (Doctorate) in Quantitative Economics at the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata. I passed out as a school topper and got admitted at Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC, Delhi University). I completed my bachelors in Economics and joined Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU, Delhi) to finish my masters in the same field. I have maintained my academic performance throughout my life and was the university topper even at JNU. This consistency in my performance and my quest to acquire more knowledge grew when I was at school. I shall forever be indebted to D.A.V. because it transformed me completely in those two years and presented me with an invaluable gift that I shall cherish my entire life.
