DATTAJI HOUSE

Who was Dattaji ?
Dattaji Shinde was Ranoji’s third son and Jankoji’s uncle. He acted as a regent when Jankoji was very young. Dattaji was killed in a battle with Najib Khan at Buradi Ghat in 1760. When he was lying wounded at the battle field Najib Khan approached him and asked, “Kyun Patil aur bhi laroge?” He said, “ Bachenge to aur bhi larenge” – this was a great inspiration for the Maratha soldiers, though Dattaji was slain.

The Motto of the “Suyastha Aatma Jagatsathu“

About the House Master
Boarding houses are the pulse of a boarding school. A child can study in a boarding school only if he is comfortable, well-settled and happy in his House. As a Housemaster, Mr Anil Pathania, endeavours to make every child feel happy, peaceful and at home in the House. He believes in moulding individuals, who are strong, self-dependent and confident enough to take on any challenge that life throws at them with dignity and grace. He is a sportsperson at heart, which helps him inspire the boys and ensure that they are deeply involved in games and a plethora of other activities on the field. Discipline and teamwork are two pillars which make an individual great, and there is no better place to learn these qualities than on the sports field. Mr Anil Pathania has been teaching Math for over 19 years and has been associated with a boarding school for nearly 18 years. His philosophy of life is based upon three ‘Ds’ which are ‘Dedication, Devotion and Discipline.’ His undying love for the mountains has inspired him to go on various expeditions as well.
