The G. Bhaskar Memorial lecture and award ceremony was organised on 15th December 2015 at Delhi Public School, R.K. Puram in remembrance of G. Bhaskar, a very promising student, who joined the institution in class 8th. Lost in the crowd initially, Bhaskar slowly and steadily made place in the hearts of his fellow students and teachers. An extremely talented and hardworking student, not only did he excel in academics, but was also a great badminton player and played in school’s table tennis team. He also had formal training in Classical Carnatic music and could recite several chapters of the Shrimad Bhagwat Gita. Unfortunately, his success ended with his early demise. The award has been instituted in his beloved memory since 1999 by the family of G.Bhaskar. This award is given to exceptional students, who not only excel in academics and co-curricular activities but also display a strong moral fibre.
The Principal, Dr.D.R.Saini; the Vice Principal, Ms. Shobha Mehta, Vice Principal, Dr. Renu Nayar, Supervisor, Mr. Mukesh Kumar and G. Bhaskar’s father, Mr. Ganapati Raman were present during the ceremony. The ceremony began with a minute of silence observed in G. Bhaskar’s honour. Ms. Prarthna Saran, who is a senior lecturer from Delhi University and has been associated with the Chinmaya Mission for more than 30 years, gave a detailed account of the Gita in the present context. Ms. Sangeeta Rana coordinated the event.
The award was given to 13 meritorious students who, along with excelling in academics and co-curriculars, possessed a high moral character. Mr. Ganpati, father of G.Bhaskar, along with his family; Vice Principals Dr. Renu Nayar and Ms. Shobha Mehta; and Mukesh Kumar, Supervisor and Head of Computer Science Department, presented the awards.
Mr. Mukesh Kumar shared his unforgettable moments with G. Bhaskar as his teacher and conveyed to the student audience to enjoy each moment of life and make each moment memorable like him. Mr. Ramnath, the elder brother of G. Bhaskar concluded the event by sharing exquisite memories of Bhaskar.
