For the students of Defence Laboratories School in Research Centre IMARAT, Pahadeshareef, Tuesday proved to be a memorable day. Their annual day celebration was graced by none other than former President of India A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.

It was like a dream come true for the students to hear the former President speak in their school auditorium. Dr. Kalam advised the students to aim great, continuously acquire knowledge, work hard and develop perseverance to achieve their goals. He described these four steps as essential tools to become unique and stand above the rest. It was not only students who keenly listened to what the eminent scientist shared with them, excitement was quite conspicuous among the parents as well. Later, Dr. Kalam made the students take an oath. He asked them to follow the principles taught by teachers as they hold an important place in their lives. Dr. S.K. Chowdhary, Director, RCI, wanted authorities to put more efforts in providing good and effective education at the school.
