We at DPS Matura Road are also putting in our bit. Inspired by the words of our first Prime Minister Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru who had once said that, Peace is not merely the absence of war but it is also a state of mind. Peace is not a relationship of nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by a serenity of soul; DPS Mathura Road had organized a World Peace Day in its campus on 25th October 2010.

After the speech of Shri M.I Hussain, Principal DPS Mathura Road, students of the school presented a Sufi dance performance stating that just like Sufism, whose religion is based on the truth of life, we at DPS Mathura Road also emphasize in our students the attainment of divine love and compassion of the heart through education

 

The event which saw flag march by 20 school students and the dignitaries concluded with the planting of a Peace Pole that displays the message “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in the language of the country where it has been placed, and usually 3 to 5 additional translations.

The idea of Peace Poles was first thought up by Masahisa Goi in 1955 in Japan. The Peace Pole Project today is furthered by, The World Peace Prayer Society. The first Peace Poles outside Japan were constructed in 1983.Since then, more than 100,000 have been placed around the world in over 180 countries.

 

Peace Poles are made of many materials in varying sizes, from tall granite poles to small wooden ones. The text might be carved or etched or painted. In some cases it merely is a plastic sign attached with screws.

 

Peace Poles have been placed in such notable locations as the North Magnetic Pole, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial, and the site of the Egyptian Pyramids in Giza, the Aiki Shrine in Iwama, Japan, as well as numerous community parks. Frequently they are placed near the entrances of churches or schools. In one case, a garden, created for a wedding, was designed around the Peace Pole that was its center piece. The Republic of Molossia, a micronation, has a Peace Pole in eight languages.

 

Perhaps the world's largest Peace Pole, at 52 feet, is located in Janesville. Another of the largest Peace Poles in the world, as measured in tons, is the granite Peace Pole in Beech Acres Park near Cincinnati, Ohio.

DPS Mathura Road: A Proud Delhi Citizen

Delhi Public School Mathura Road, is the flagship of the DPS fraternity. Six decades ago a group of visionaries lay the seeds of this large family. Deeply rooted in the post independent ethos of the country it had an auspicious birth on its present site in 1949. Time saw it blossom into a training ground for achievers who created history in multifarious fields – from the political arena to the corridors of power, from the creativity of theatre and film to the imaginative world of fashion – DPS nurtured each one , preparing them to fulfill the largeness of their dreams.

 

Keeping up with the above-mentioned tradition this year again our school students participated in various noted fields. One among them was the spectacular closing ceremony of the19th Common Wealth Games 2010 held in Delhi. There were total 34 students of DPS Mathura Road School and 15 of the Ibtida Shiksha Kendra (school run in the premises of DPS Mathura Road for the underprivileged students) participating for the event whose theme was Global.

 

The participation in CWG Closing ceremony once again proves that our school not only believes in giving academic knowledge but also trusts the fact that an overall personality of the student nurtures with the involvement in co-curricular activities.

 

‘Chitrankan 2010’ Interschool Art Competition

Delhi Public School, Mathura Road hosted an interschool art competition ‘CHITRANKAN 2010’ on 29 September 2010 to bring together budding artists from various schools of Delhi and NCR. 32 schools took part in the event which brought forth various art forms through ‘on the spot’ painting competition for classes VI- XII and a competition on tribal art forms like Madhubani and Worli.

Through this DPS MATHURA ROAD attempted to cater to the problem of tobacco abuse creating various health problems in the city. Our students were sensitized to generate awareness, understand the socio-economic gap in the society and the needs of the disabled or underprivileged children by exposing them to their problems and unhealthy surroundings they are living in.

 

A group of 24 students from class VIIIth were selected and trained to carry out this project. Awareness on ill effects of using tobacco (in the form of cigarettes, or chewing) was given to various people in the school at all levels primary, secondary and senior-secondary. Even the forth-class employees including the school-the bus drivers, security guards, in bastis around the school (Sunder Basti and Nizamuddin Basti), NGO’s, and people

visiting the Delhi Zoo as well as Sunder Nagar Market. Our children displayed posters in all these areas, conducted street plays and surveys by using W.H.O ‘s questionnaires on Drug/Tobacco Abuse to generate awareness, and interviewed people on the streets, at the paan waalaa’s (panwaari’s) cigarette selling shops. They also visited the Blind school and conducted interactive sessions with the underprivileged students studying in the Ibtida Shiksha Kendra (an afternoon school running in our school premises only).

Munqsmun 2010

Delhi Public School, Mathura Road organised an inter-school Model United Nations in association with the United Nations Information Centre for India and Bhutan (UNIC) on the 5th and 6th of August, 2010. 15 elite schools of Delhi and NCR participated in this much-awaited event. Keeping pace with the current world politics, the MUNQSMUN 2010 simulated the following 3 committees- The United Nations Security Council (UNSC), the Historical Security Council (HSC) and the Financial Stability Board (FSB).

 

The agenda of the United Nations Security Council was the expansion of the UNSC with special focus on increasing representation. The UNSC comprised of 16 countries, each country had a double delegation-1 speaker and 1 lobbyist. The UNSC at MUNQSMUN’10 provided the members the chance to have Back Room Negotiations. This unique feature tested the coordination between the members of the team and lend a more competitive edge to the Security Council. This feature of the SC was the very first of its kind in the MUN world and helped the delegates to understand, experience and witness negotiation strategies applied in an actual UNSC.

 

The Historical Security Council at MUNQS MUN 2010 was simulating Security Council sessions at numerous high points of the Cold War Era- the Cuban Missile Crisis, Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, and the Iraq invasion of Kuwait. The design of the committee in simple terms was just like that of a time machine as it included different time periods of the Cold War era. The discussions of the committee was divided into selective themes (of different time periods) and the delegates could enter into different time zones during the conference discussing various important key aspects of the Cold War era.

 

The Financial Stability Board’s agenda was the current state of the world economy. The FSB was a financial committee comprising of 32 countries, each with a single delegation. The agenda at large was divided into various themes. Each theme had its own financial emergency situation which the delegates had to tackle. Different aspects of the agenda included different themes and each theme had its own crisis. The delegates had to discuss and solve these different situations at large.

 

MUN conferences provided students with the opportunity of playing the role of diplomats involved in decision-making and conflict resolution at the UN. Students not only learnt about the UN system but also found out about economic, social and environmental issues pertinent in today's world. Students learnt to resolve these problems through negotiation and compromise. They also developed skills of independent research, oration, resolution writing and collaboration. Students also learnt about the conduct of formal meetings and the use of Parliamentary Procedure.

Itihaas – Walk to Chandni ChowkOur school organized an educational walk to Chandni Chowk in collaboration with ITIHAAS (Indian Traditional and Heritage society) on 27.3.09 for class XII. This walk through one of the oldest roads, in living history opened a window to the old world, where our heritage stood with all its grandeour and glamour. History is still a part of each nook and corner and every building, mosque, haveli that stands on this busy and bustling road and each has an amazing story to tell.

Old Delhi has a history of resilience. Plundered & destroyed several times, the city always returned to its cultural sophistication, intellectual sensitivity and commercial buoyancy - Chandni Chowk is the heart of city.

Walking through Ballinmaran was like reliving history as on both sides we saw shops selling artifact, bangles and itar, some of them even trace their origin to the times of the Mughal Kings! However, the most fascinating experience was visiting the purana haveli of the 19th century poet Mirza Ghalib whose poetry seems reverberating through the walls of this haveli even today.

Itihaas believe that it is the people who are the real carrier of culture and heritage and not just monuments. Hence, our walk culminated with our visit to Fatehpuri Masjid, where our students interacted Dr. Mufti M Ahmad, the Bade Imaan Sahib of this mosque. He sensitized the children of the importance of communal peace and harmony in a violent, turbulent world today often filled with misconceptions created either by the media or other disruptive forces. He emphatically talked about pluralism and communal harmony which have always been characteristic and uniqueness of our society. He further added how we need to be inspired by history to strengthen Indians secular ideas and strive towards bringing peace into the world.

On the 25th of March 2009, a fascinating trip was organized by the ITIHAAS society to the historical road of Chandni Chowk-one of the oldest straight roads in the world. It was the most integral part of the ancient city of Shahjananbad, with Fatehpur Mosque and the Red fort on the either of its sides. First, the students were taken to Town Hall. Built by the British, it was the signed of their superiority over the Indians. Then we were taken to the Haveli of Lala Chunnamal, a Hindu Businessman who was the richest money lender of the 19th century. The gigantic 120 rooms Palace mesmerized all of us. Next destination was Mirza Ghalib’s Haveli the Urdu poet who needs no introduction. Finally, we visited the Fatehpur Mosque, where the Imaam Saheb, obliged the curious students and answered their queries. His golden words were a source of inspiration for all of us. Time passed swiftly and we didn’t realise that the trip had ended. However, in a short span we learned a lot about our own, undiscovered city. Such trips, remind us that we are blessed with a rich heritage and culture and hence we could look forward to more frequent such visits.
