Concept:
A musical eve with versatile, eloquent, charming, mesmerizing Dipsite musicians, singers,

Also an opportunity for young Dipsites to showcase their passion, aspirations, talent.

* Central venue

Going forward:
I request Dipsites and my friends in the Advertising, Marketing & Promotions domain to please
advise and help.

1. How to reach out to Dipsites of different DPS schools who are aspiring musicians,
singers, dancers, stand up comics..
(Thought of making a 1 minute simple video calling for participation- and putting it up on
YouTube, FaceBook.other social media; writing to Principals of various DPS schools
seeking their assistance in sending us details of such alumni of their DPS school.)

2. Will then need another video that has Dipsites saying, ‘I’m going to be there. And you?’

Current status:
* Two young Dipsites (from DPS sector 45 Gurgaon) both of whom are musicians will come
over on Sunday to start the planning process.

Need help, folks! Let’s make it a night to remember!

They expressed a joy that seemed to come from deep within, not forced or superficial. One could sense their genuineness and believe they were not just playing a role for last 2 to 3 decades. 
One student even commented, ‘Meeting these senior Dipsites, one realizes their work is consistent with their purpose. You might say they are living on purpose.’
How gratifying to hear such wonderful thought from DPS students.
