It is with a heavy heart I have to share with you that the DPS Society that manages all DPS schools has been fraught with infighting, rebellion, and dissatisfaction on personal grounds- with no concern for any of the DPS Schools. Obviously, since they are not from DPS. They cannot feel for DPS the way we feel.
One example of such dissent is detailed here below .
You will be surprised to know that there is no representation of your Dipsites alumni association on the Governing Body of the DPS Society. Whilst the current members are eminent personalities in their own fields they are not from DPS schools- and therefore do not have feelings for DPS. There are several instances where Dipsites have not been allowed to enter the school…even when it was not for an admission.This is insulting to say the least. The Mumbai DPS Career Information Workshop, last year, was canceled at the last minute after all arrangements had been made. This was at no cost to the school, DPS Navi Mumbai, and of immense value to the students/ their parents.
And now, the Delhi Career Information Workshop will be held in a non-DPS school.
There are many more instances.
There are many accomplished Dipsites, and at senior positions, who should be in the Governing body of DPS Society.
Please do let us have your views/reply in writing.
Always at your service,

Subject: my letters to Mr. Shunglu
After a month long frustrating period of trying to work with Chairman Shunglu I sent the following letters to him when he constituted a selection committee without consulting me, listing members who are not as per the rules of CBSE or Haryana Education Dept..
Dear Mr. Shunglu,
I was at DPS Faridabad when the Resolution circulated by you was given to the Offg. Principal to get signatures of the Haryana MC members.
This Selection Committee was not discussed with me and does not have my approval.
I therefore reject it.
I showed you the enclosed tentative list two weeks ago which I had drawn up according to guidelines we have followed, but you refused to discuss it at that time. I may add that the persons listed are selected by designation and are not my personal friends.
. Subsequent letter dated March 11th
March 11, 2014
Dear Mr. Shunglu,
I must remind you that you appeared as a witness in the inquiry instituted by the Managing Committee of Delhi Public School, Faridabad against Mr. Anil Kumar. So fairness and justice demands that you keep yourself away from any decision with respect to Mr. Anil Kumar and/or with respect to any litigation in the matter in which you had appeared. In the circumstances, the legal position attained by you in this case cannot be changed merely because you have taken over as chairman, DPS Society.
The case against Mr. Anil Kumar is now listed for hearing on 14th of March at Faridabad courts. It pains me to note that the entire team of lawyers has been changed by you without consultation with the school managing committee, which everyone suspects is for a definite purpose than to protect the interest of the school and DPS society.
In view of the above I intend to engage a lawyer to represent the case of DPS Faridabad, dispassionately and without any group or person affiliations in the society.
It is my observation that the disruptive element at DPS Faridabad is a group of allies of the former principal Mr. Anil Kumar. Until his case is disposed off, we should wait and then take a decision on a principal, because whoever heads the school will have to face these internal dissensions.
I sent you a letter yesterday (March 10, 2014) rejecting the Selection Committee you had constituted for selecting a regular principal for DPS Faridabad, because you had circulated a Resolution to the Managing Committee without consulting me.
In continuation of that letter I am of the view that we may not hold a selection for some time and allow the present arrangement to continue.
Sharada Nayak–This afternoon I was informed over the phone by the principals of DPS Faridabad and Dwarka that I had been removed from Chairmanship of both schools. I believe I have been removed from some satellite schools as well. but as yet i have not heard anything officially.
I will soon be sending you a narrative account of my work association with Mr. Shunglu since February, who I supported in the recent election with full trust and confidence in his integrity. To say I am disappointed is an understatement .
I have had a wonderful relationship with over twenty schools in the last 15years where I have received respect and been accorded a dignified status, coloured with warmth and appreciation.This denoument comes as a disappointment because it does not behove an educated person with a distinguished record of service to be so petty and vindictive. But I will still continue to work in the capacity of an elected life member of the Working Committee. As for parting from the schools, which are the raison d’etre of our association, I can only quote a good friend of mine who in similar circumstances said with a smile “I go as I came, fired with enthusiasm”!! ________________________________________________________________
