Late Shri. D.R. Shah



Our founder Chairman Padmashree Late Shri. D.R. Shah, had conceptualized an educational institution par excellence. He single-handedly worked tirelessly to give his dream a shape. The infrastructure, the teaching faculty is comparable with the best in the NCR. He made no compromises nor cut corners and the dream came true on March 1995.

The school made stupendous and empirical strides in academics and co-curricular activities and has carved a niche for itself among the schools enjoying a formidable reputation. The growth of school is a continuous process which requires updating and not that once you create the infrastructure and sit blithely. Keeping this in mind, Mr. Shah, whom we affectionately and respectfully called “Bauji”, always kept pace with the time irrespective of the financial implications. . Our Bauji, after a brief illness, completed his worldly journey on 14th March, 2009, and left all of us orphaned. The fact has yet to sink in. He was the vice president of Sant Nirankari Mission, whoich took out a funeral procession accompanied by Sewa Dal volunteers and stream of mourners. A prayer meeting was held in the school premises on 18th March, 2009, where sea of humanity attended and speaker after speaker waxed eloquent on Bauji for his philanthropic indulgence, compassion, qualities of head and heart. Nirankari Baba Hardev Singhji Maharaj recounted his six decade association with Nirankari mission and his humble services. Our reverend Bauji, the fulcrum of our strength, who always fostered the values of resilience and steadfastness, pushing through all the turmoil with empirical courage, was a man of charisma, positive thinking and magnetism. He was a social activitist He was a catalyst who spawned the dynamics of the SIPS family that we have always been proud of.

In recognition of his services to the society, he was awarded the prestigious civilian award Padmashree, in the year 1991. He was instrumental in alleviating the suffering of the people displaced from Pakistan after partition which betrays the compassionate instincts were vibrant in him when he was a youth of 25 years. His father Late Shri KanshiRam Shah, to commemorate whose memory the school was established was also a philanthropist, the road in front of the school is named after him
