The age old tradition of education has taken a quantum leap with technology which when constructively handled has proved to be an amazing aid during these trying times.
The vision of spreading the joy of learning to one and all was initiated by the blessings of my late grandfather Mr. K.D. Saraf in the year 2007. Since then his philosophy and mission has been inspiring me immensely.
Following his footsteps, I would like to quote Abraham Lincoln's words here -- " I do the very best I know how, the very best I can and I mean to keep on doing so until the end!"
Our entire team at DPS, Barasat is dedicated towards achieving excellence in our chosen field and am confident that the perennial support from all our well wishers will help us to reach greater heights.
“Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society in every family” - Kofi Annam.
The above words have always found resonance in my soul, as an educator, administrator, and moreover as a human being.
In my 33 years of association with teaching and administration, 25 years with the DPS Society, and my tenure as the Founder DPS Principal of Kolkata, West Bengal, I have always found education to be an elixir.
My experience as an ex-member of the Planning Commission for Education (appointed by HRDC) will help me guide DPS Barasat in its stages of infancy and empower it towards a strong future.
I have been honoured and recognized by the ABP group with the prestigious DRONACHARYA AWARD - BEST INSPIRING PRINCIPAL, by FICCI with the APARAJITA: ART OF EXCELLENCE in the “YOUNG ACHIEVERS CATEGORY”, by British Council as an AMBASSADOR and also by ASSET, UIEO, SOF and NSTSE.
I have been privileged to work with the management of DPS Megacity, led by the dynamic and enterprising Shri Vijay Agarwal and earnestly look forward to guide DPS Barasat with all my acquired wealth of experience, wisdom and humility.
It will indeed be an invigorating challenge to bring up DPS Barasat and establish it as an educational institute of true class and quality. It is my resolve to be with the school in its formative years, with my utmost capability, care and concern.
My sincere blessings and warm wishes with the entire DPS Barasat family.
