|These days, everyday, everyone receives one or two SMss on various tests that can be conducted- and the charges are dropping by the SMS; someone may actually end up offering to pay and do the tests too! On the other hand, the most worrisome health issues today are: Diabetes and Hypertension… and an important silent disease Osteoporosis.
Awareness, early detection and adoption of bone strengthening strategies will go a long way in reducing the risk factor here.
Having attended a Health Camp recently by a well known medical company recently in my condominium, I contacted Artemis Hospitals and they, in their constant endeavor to spread health awareness, are happy to conduct a Health Orientation for DPS alumni/families.

|Our class of 1976, that completes 40 years of having left school, is delighted to learn about
Principal Mr Manohar Lal’s magnanimous gesture in inviting us Dipsites on one day
in September 2016 to take a trip down memory lane and relive moments of a time when there was no
Internet, no mobile phone, hand written letters and birthday cards were commonplace… and a 70% in CBSE
Boards assured one a seat in a good college in Delhi University.
We will invite our teachers and pay our regards.

Writing this mail in reference to our conversation regarding outdoor options for DPS
alumni network around Delhi NCR.
We are Tigerwalah a wildlife travel & destination management company offering
customized wildlife travel solutions to wildlife destinations across India. We organize
wildlife and adventure tours for Individuals , corporates and school groups .
Following options are available for outdoor options :
- Wildlife tours & tiger Safaris- Can be organized at Ranthambore & Corbett which
are both 6 hours drive from Delhi and are well connected by road /rail
network. Ideal trip should be minimum for 2 night So that group can do 2/3
jungle safaris to increase wildlife viewing experience. Since safaris are always
in short supply it would be good if we freeze plans atleast 60 days in advance
to avoid last minute inconvenience. Ideal size for group would be 30-40 pax
for ease of logistics.
- River Rafting excursions – Can also organize river rafting & trekking excursions at
Rishikesh for the group. We work with some of the best campsites around
Rishikesh including luxury ones . Ideal duration would be 2/3 nights and
ideal group size would be 40-50 pax.As per my experience, ideally you should plan a date for early June else post October as
most of the activities are shut on account of annual rains between July- September plus
you would need a lead time of 30 odd days to drive this . Regards

on a rather unique Internet based application. That set us thinking…and we sent out the following
