A brilliant effort is most often supplicated with an acknowledgement. Martyrdom on the border is endowed with salutes and honorary air-fire, a child scoring good marks is rewarded with medals and trophies, a stupendous cover drive by a cricketer receives applause and hoots, a fine dance performance by a famous celebrity is lauded with whistles, and such is the story of Deepalaya which is gratified to have won the glorious testimony of people who rest their faith in its visionary work. On 7th July, 2010 the High Commissioner to India; Australian High Commission,His Excellency Mr. Peter N. Varghese released PERCEPTIONS- a booklet which includes the testimony of many of the organizationâ€™s well- wishers. After releasing the booklet, while addressing the Deepalaya family and various guests, the Australian High Commissioner said that, â€œthe booklet signifies the amount of commitment by the people associated with the organization. Here, I am representing my country Australia and would like to strengthen the bond with the organization too. There is enormous talent that resides in India and it is very important to realize this talent. The various performances by the students of Deepalaya is a terrific example of the same.â€ He further added that, â€œWhile flipping through some of the pages of the booklet, two things struck me- Genuine commitment from top management to down and second are the stories of change and transformation brought by the organization.â€ He was completely awe-struck after witnessing the performances by the students from the four Schools of Deepalaya (Kalkaji Extension, Sanjay Colony, Gole Kuan and Ramditi J.R.Narang) and commented that, â€œEducation is the connecting thread to everything we do in life.â€ The students performed with full zeal and confidence on hip hop and jazz dance, tiny-tots on ketchup song, alumni students performed Bharatnatyam dance. Apart from this, the day had the Choral group singing many melodious English songs. Speaking on the occasion, Ms. Sudha Parthasarthy, Executive Director elaborated on the journey of the entire booklet. She said,â€ the reviews received are through the 2009 Indya Shine Awards (Great Nonprofits). Winning or loosing is of no significance, as long as we get the support of socially awakened people around us. We at Deepalaya are highly enthralled and motivated by the response. The appreciation and suggestions has enabled us to strive harder.â€ This day was possible only because of the love and care that the well-wishers of the organization have showered on through their reviews. The organization is thankful to all those who have been associated with Deepalaya! Send feedback to email@example.com By- Pooja Sikka, Officer- Communications
