ABOUT THE BOOK :

A commemorative volume celebrating 50 years of a glorious institution, the Raghubir Singh Junior Modern School (RSJMS), this record is packed with rich archival material, including anecdotes, photographs, and messages, woven into a crisp commentary. Offering the reader an interesting and picturesque glimpse into the life and times of one of India’s most sought-after schools, this book attempts to answer questions such as: Why Modernites from different walks of life consider them-selves so connected to each other? and Why do they feel privileged to have been a part of this institution? From its beginnings in an old bungalow in Daryaganj to the founding of the RSJMS at Humayun Road in 1961, this comprehensive history will be interesting, not only to ex-students, parents, teachers, and others associated with the school, but also to anyone connected with education

Reviews / opinions:

 

"The Milk Break and After is a travelogue of a long and satisfying journey. It has been written in such a way that you can hop on and off as you like. Dip into it as you want or read it from cover to cover. It is here that we pause to look ahead with even greater determination in our quest for perfection, for we know it cannot be achieved by the weak."

Preface :

Manju Rajput, Headmistress, Raghubir Singh Junior Modern School, New DelhiA futuristic vision, integrity of intentions, nobility in thought and an indomitable spirit were needed to give wings to a dream which, with the strength of its own convictions, scaled insurmountable heights. The annals of history bear testimony to the unmatched success attained by what began as a small endeavour to offer quality education; a right blend of western progressive thought and Indian culture; to the glorious status it enjoys today, that of an educational institution of unparalleled repute. Its achievements have always been accorded the recognition it so truly deserves. At this significant milestone in the trajectory charted by Raghubir Singh Junior Modern School, it becomes mandatory for us to introspect, review and reflect on our strengths and weaknesses, accomplishments and misgivings. Keeping in view the vision and goals we started with, it is now time to take stock of the past and plan for the future. Once again, it is time to rededicate ourselves to the cause and keep the torch aflame. Revisiting the history of R S Junior Modern School and documenting its progress opened vistas of invaluable insights, some rendered misty in the ravages of time, some still resonating with energy, replete with clarity and relevance. It was an interesting and rewarding exercise, which instilled faith in our own abilities to administer the best, offer the latest; thereby delivering excellence while upholding values true to the Modern doctrine. The success of the eminent alumni of this institution, in their chosen fields, attributes immensely to the school's unprecedented nonpareil Preface M a n j u R a j p u t status and persona. This volume is our tribute to all those who have contributed in making the school what it is today. I feel privileged to present before you a repertoire of images— innocent, real and surreal, evoking nostalgia and pride, of a place where conformity and restraint go hand in hand, where creativity is fostered and harmony promoted. Within its pages are glimpses of a dream that the founder saw, and its growth and evolution over fifty years. This book is our tribute to that great visionary, Lala Raghubir Singh. 'The Milk Break and After' is a travelogue of a long and satisfying journey. It has been written in such a way that you can hop on and off as you like. Dip into it as you want or read it from cover to cover. It is here that we pause to look ahead with even greater determination in our quest for self-realisation, for we know it cannot be achieved by the weak-willed.
