I have joined as Deputy Commissioner of Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti, Lucknow Region on 08.06.2020. I feel proud that I had worked in this Region for quite long time as Principal and Assistant Commissioner. From my personal experience and feedback I could observe that students in this Region have a lot of potentialities and staff are talented. I feel no hesitation in asserting that Lucknow Region is one of the most elite and noble Regions of Samiti catering to the educational needs of rural talented children of 74 districts of Uttar Pradeesh and 13 districts of Uttrakhand. I seck wholehcarted dedication and continuous support of staff for achieving the goals of Samiti. Planning in all spheres require a dircetion which comes from the Principals. The active, affectionate day to day continuous involvement, monitoring, supervision mixed with a little empathy and human approach, guidance with positivity by the head certainly sets not only the best example, but also functions as a guiding force and sends a message about the tasks expected from the staff for ensuring the safety and security of students and congenial academic atmosphere. You will appreciate that no wvar can be won by Generals alone. They nced soldiers and defence equipments. I am confident that with the dedicated team work, we are sure to achieve academic excellence and safe school environment. Maximum utilization of available resources and infrastructure for the overall development of students must be ensured. We should safeguard the Vidyalaya property and beautify the campus by planting more and more trees. I hope you will pay more attention towards Safety and Security of students. I convey my gratitude to the Principals and staff of JNVS who have worked. wholeheartedly during pandemic COVID-19 and despite hurdles have been working day and night for the cause of Nation as many of our JNVS have been made Quarantine Centres and Temporary Hospitals and hope all precautions will be taken by them. I wish you all a great success in your endeavours.
