   ANKIT TEWARI-THE YOUNGEST FILM DIRECTOR OF INDIA

 

What makes someone special is not only the skill, intelligence, hardwork, and luck but brutal relentless passion (or madness) to follow one’s dream in the face of all adversities. The study of most successful people in the world tell us just one factor which is common amongst all of them- they never had it easy and toiled hard to achieve where they are.

Similar is the story of Ankit Tewari, a student of class XII at Delhi Public School Ghaziabad, Meerut Road  an ordinary  boy from a middle class family, until he fully utilized his energy to follow his dream to become “ The Youngest Film Director In India”

With no connections in media, TV or Bollywood, at the age of 15 years, he decided to make a movie of 1 hour. He received  resistance and criticism from the family who continuously asked him to concentrate on his studies, to which he assured them that he will not compromise with his studies (the truth is he never cared about his studies, not even now, because nothing can come between him and his dream while making the movie. Thus, started the process of making- “THE CHASE BEGINS”, an action-romantic-drama feature film, which was released on YouTube in Nov.2015. While the plot of the movie was loosely visualized by him, he discussed it with his family to complete it and at some level, convinced them (mainly his mom, mama and nani) to act in it. It was  sponsored by his family, including the equipments, recording of songs, dubbing and editing. Once it was completed, he was interviewed by Aaj Tak, Navbharat Times, DNA India and Dainik Jagran. After tasting success, he launched his own YouTube channel – “Ankit Tewari Films” . Then he also danced to Shah Rukh Khan’s Bollywood numbers- Jabra Fan RELOADED and Love Mera Hit Hit, and uploaded them on YouTube.

Continuing to pursue his  dream , he decided to make his next movie on a much larger scale, technology & theme. Thus he started working on his dream project- ‘Ishq Shuda’ that consists of a huge cast. The film has been shot across Delhi NCR & Mussorie. The plot of the movie revolves around the dilemma of teenagers choosing their country over their love. It is likely to be released in theatres soon. He is probably the only teenager in the world to have achieved this feat and should hopefully go all the way to become “The Prince Of Bollywood” in years to come.

 

It is a matter of great pride that out of around 1000 schools ranked across the country, Delhi Public School Ghaziabad has once again been ranked No.1 in India in Academic Reputation . Needless to say that it has been ranked as the number one school in Ghaziabad by the Education World magazine, for the Sixth Consecutive year . DPSG has worked concertedly towards making its mark on the educational map and such rankings go a long way in strengthening the educational edifice of the school. What makes the achievement laudable is that the school has clinched the spot by meeting the carefully set and comprehensive survey parameters of assessment of all domains of pedagogy. The strong conglomerate of the students, teachers, parents and the school management has made this achievement possible and DPSG is ready to venture and explore the uncharted territories and achieve many a more milestones.

 

                     DPSG emerges as  a transformational leader in Education       

 It is a matter of immense pride that DPSG, Meerut Road is selected as Microsoft Show Case School for the fourth Consecutive Year. Ms Jyoti Gupta, Principal and 11 teachers have been chosen as  Microsoft Innovative Expert Educators for the year 2017-18 after the 250 plus staff members  became  Certified Microsoft Innovative Educators.

'Technology has played the pivotal role in every aspect of creating 21st Century Learning Environment in the  school, be it Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Effective Communication or Global Citizenship', says Mrs. Jyoti Gupta.  Apart from the basic infrastructure for digital classrooms like smart boards, projectors, the school has adopted Office 365 in education en mass.  Various  Microsoft tools have enabled teachers to help students 24X7. The school is collaborating with parents and students through Edmodo, a productive  tool and  with other countries on projects based on UN’s Sustainable Development  Goals through Skype and other collaborative  tools like Flipgrid, Messanger and Padlet.  The  School firmly believes in the ethos of inclusion and the projects like Digital Citizenship,  Five Safe Fingers and  Climate Action  have included the participation of Poorv Madhyamic Vidhayala, Morta, the school for underprivileged  adopted by DPSG. 

` Be Prepared, Be Practical,  Be Passionate’…… is the motto of school leadership to drive the change with the Success mantra  being  'Desire and ability to unlearn, learn and  a drive to sustain the change'

 “Educating the mind,without educating the heart is no education at all.”  - Aristotle

DPSG has alwaysbelieved that the role of a school is not only to pursue academic excellencebut also to motivate its students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers,and productive members of the society. 

Art has always playeda dynamic role in shaping many a personalities who have courageouslyrevolutionized the creative course of mankind. Art may not have necessarily changed the world but it has been instrumentalin changing the human beings who dared to think and act differently and bringabout the much needed change in the society.

Erudite scholars like Platoand Tagore have alwaysemphasized on the importance of creative arts in theeducation as it helps to cultivate and guide students to reflect and understandtheir relationship with the world.

Keeping this in mind,we at DPSGM are organizing an Arts festival “Evolution-The Journey -,dleUo;”.The exhibition willshowcase Pen/Pencil sketch, paper patch work, canvas painting, watercolourpainting, clay sculpture, and Indian traditional event, relief work along withwork of eminent and aspiring artists. The art fest, an acme of tradition andtransitionis a way to unleash creativity and generate awareness among our younglearners.  We are enthusiastic about the Artfestival as it is our earnest attempt at creating avenues for artists who havenot only attained acclaim in the field but also for those who yearn to beacknowledged as creative geniuses.

We look forward to your positiveconfirmation for our invitation to this special event.
