Suparna SankaranOn the special occasion of the Golden Jubilee Celebrations of D.B.M.S English School and the Alumni Meet, it gives me immense pleasure to write for Glimpses: Golden Jubilee issue . D. B.M.S has indeed come a long way in 50 years. Those associated with D.B.M.S, be it the parent organisation or the sister concerns have always worked tirelessly for the cause of education.. By expanding its horizons, D.B.M.S has touched the lives of innumerable number of people. I am overwhelmed to see the great strides it has made after I left in 1993, such as Binapani school, Lilliput School etc.

Eastern India's largest selling English newspaper, The Telegraph, in association with the ‘Sreeleathers’ had organized a felicitation ceremony where the Principal, two teachers and one student from each school had been awarded for their sincere efforts and achievements.
