It was a very special moment for LKSEC, when the first boarder of LKSEC Ajay Nagar returned back to his roots to revive old memories. Ajay was admitted to the Prahlad House in 1991 in VII standard and was conferred as the first Head Boy of the school. Later he did his engineering from the prestigious Roorkee Engineering College. His extraordinary talent and caliber got him job in the US, where he continued for seven years. However, he was attracted by the Indian soil and returned to India. He is presently associated with Resonance- a premier institute for preparing students for IIT and Medical Examination.
Ajay was in high spirits to see his school growing beyond the boundaries and was fascinated to see the overall development. He attended the school assembly and felt nostalgic. In his own words, “It’s very special moment for me to stand in the same assembly area again where I used to stand as a student, sometime a part of the choir.” He also remembered his old teachers and house masters and thanked all for giving him the best care. Principal R.C. Joshi, said that Master Ajay Nagar was very good dancer and was known as the Michael Jackson of the school. He wished him good health and great career ahead.
Getting the flavor of the mock parliamentary session with lots of opposition and counter opposition by the prospective leaders in the opposition and the leaders at the governance amazed everyone in the audience as they didn’t seem to be doing it as a part of school’s parliamentary debate but rather reflected the impact of the real parliamentary ones. Good leaders!!!.
