Soba

The SCINDIA SCHOOL OLD BOYS' ASSOCATION (SOBA) was registered under the United States of Gwalior, Indore & Malwa ( Madhya Bharat) Societies Registration Act of 1950, on 25th November 1959. The Mantle of running the organization was carried by many illustrious Scindians over the years under the leadership of the Principal of The Scindia School. HH Madhavrao Scindia with his futuristic vision launched SOBA of the new millennium through our website on 21st Oct '2000.

The next phase of evolution of SOBA was the restructuring of this organization. The Principal and the members firmly believed that the Old Boys Association was best run by the Old Boys themselves. The year 2003 thus, was a turning point in the history of Scindia School Old Boy's Association.

The draft constitution of SOBA proposed a Central Committee was to be formed with adequate representation from regional chapters, in addition to representatives from other quarters along with a member of the silver jubilee batch and other special nominees. The Principal of the School, according to this charter would be a Permanent Member of the Executive Committee.

The organization has gone from strength to strength. The result was a proliferation of SOBAs with many chapters in India and abroad. SOBA has always been updated of the school, its affairs, its achievements and its celebrations. And it is this organization that makes the old boy family a closely knit group.

SOBA CUP
If our Association has not looked back since the new SOBA structure came into existence, it is primarily due to feeling of involvement of the all the chapters and Scindians at large.
Globally, the SOBA chapter executives and their members have contributed to the success of SOBA by just being there and doing their thing, meeting month after month and roping in every Scindian in their domain.
With a view to recognise the efforts made by the chapters, the Central Executive has instituted an award called the SOBA CUP for the best performing SOBA chapter during the year.á This trophy would be given away on the Old Boy's Day.
The selection process for the SOBA CUP is very simple and open.
The chapter being most active in terms of keeping its membership live and active with streamlined systems in place to locate and detect every one of their members, promote vibrant networking between its members, besides also publishing – for all to see – its annual accounts, hold public spirited functions to help the society in which they live and contribute to such societies their due, as also meeting for fellowship functions will be considered for the award.
