The G. Bhaskar Memorial lecture and award ceremony was organised on 18th December 2019 at Delhi Public School, R.K. Puram in remembrance of G. Bhaskar, a very promising student, who joined the institution in class eight. Lost in the crowd initially, Bhaskar slowly and steadily made a place in the hearts of his fellow students and teachers. An extremely talented and hardworking student, not only did he excel in academics, but he was also a great badminton player and played in the 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.
