The 16th Scholars’ Banquet was held on Sunday, 14th August with traditional regalia. It was a day of felicitation of the academic high achievers. The Chief Guest for the occasion was Justice Sanjay Mishra (Ex-Ch, 1969), Lokayukta of U.P. Principal, Dr Saraswat extended a warm welcome to Mr Mishra extolling his erudition, simplicity and qualities of head and heart. He also urged the young Scindians to seek inspiration from the life and work of people like Justice Mishra. Later, the honourable Chief Guest spoke about some of the abiding influences from his school days which had a lasting impact on his personality and helped him contribute meaningfully to whatever he undertook. He spoke about the strong culture and ethos of the school which stays with a person much after leaving school and helps a Scindian to achieve success in all his endeavours. He appealed to the students to value work and not depend on luck. Principal, Dr M.D. Saraswat handed over a memento to Justice S. Mishra as a token of our love and appreciation. The scholars enjoyed an evening of inspirational talk and of course, a sumptuous meal!
