Alumni Speak

The school has been accredited time and again for its world class education. Our alumni are already making their mark by contributing to the society. Some our students are good doctors, some are good engineers, some are good writers, some are good entrepreneurs and many others too are following their dreams.

“When I joined GyanPeethika in the year 1998, I was quite scared of the new culture and it was very difficult for me to adjust and accentuate in an environment where most of the things including mode of communication, jargons, life style etc. were different. But, like most of the people, I too had an aspiration and that was aided and maneuvered by the irreplaceable effort of my teachers. Behind anybody’s success, there lie certain factors and in my case, they were my teachers, friends and my family. I have lived and enjoyed most of the desires that I had. I can’t repay this school, the best times of my life that it has endowed me, the imprint of which can never fade in my conscious.

Currently, I am working as an assistant manager in Coal India Limited a Central Govt. undertaking since 2011 after my graduation which was from Indian School of Mines. Practically speaking, many-a-times I have observed and felt that the one who keeps himself/herself updated with a changing world is set to get a number of opportunities. Therefore, I personally advice everybody especially younger generations to make full and positive use of latest technologies.”

“My entry in GPS was a new atmosphere, a bit oppressive for a Hindi medium shy student like me who could not respond to his teachers owing to poor confidence. For the first 2 months, I could not figure out what should I do. I was good in studies but the language was proving to be too crucial to ignore. My self-confidence shattered when I could not justify my capabilities. Taking tuition was not an option for me since I was from a family which was just somehow managing to afford my school expenses. I decided to devote time to books, kept a dictionary with me. One year later, in class 12th, I told realized that I had been left with no options but self-study and take the help of school teachers as much as possible. My teacher helped me open heartedly. Until I finished my board exams, I had no planning of my future. Thanks to my good marks, I got admission in ‘Hansraj college’ Delhi University. Though I was doing very well with civil engineering, my love for chemistry was driving me towards non-conventional subjects and my hunt eventually ended with a deep interest in Environmental Engineering. I decided to study further in this field. It was a very bold decision to shift from the illustrious and secure career in the construction industry to new and challenging field of Environment, in Asia `IIT Roorkee´. Now the survival became easier. My professor told me about a scholarship to continue my research and study in Germany. It was the scholarship provided by DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service). Currently, I am doing my research work at ‘TechnologiezentrumWasser’ (Centre of technology for water), Dresden (Germany). I have been offered a doctoral position in few international universities. When I look back, my own life reminds me of a fairy-tale. It gives me hope and inspiration for my future. I did not have anything extraordinary in me, if I can wriggle out, anybody else can certainly do it. The only requisite is to stay focused and keep the flame burning to see yourself as a better and improved person in the future. School education is the basis of everything we do in further studies. It decides our fate. We are the creators of our future. If we are determined, nothing dares to stop us. So, let’s try our best to follow the lines of great man of action Swami Vivekananda ‘Arise, awake and stop not till the goal is reached’
