It was a joyous 88th Founder’s Day at Col. Brown School

December 2, 2014
 Col. Brown School celebrated with much gusto on Sunday its 88th Founder’s Day. It was a special occasion for 300 plus boys who all tried to excel and vied with one another in enacting their respective assignments to the best of their ability. Almost every boy was given a role to perform and each one carried it out with perfection as his dotting parents watched with a glint of pride in their eyes. Mr Satyavrat Bansal, former director general of police, was the chief guest and took the salute at the March Past.
What appeared very remarkable was the high quality and wide range of co-curricular activities in which the boys are routinely engaged in. Imagine, the boys excelling in making cushions and their covers, other furnishing articles and even doing knitting, generally the exclusive preserve of the girls. Numerous works of fine art including landscapes, portraits, acrylic on canvas, water colours, thread painting, block/charcoal printing etc that were on display spoke volumes of the boys’ amazing talent; some of the paintings were so good that one could easily suspect these to have been done by professional artists.
On display were also several designs done by computer graphics, posters and even book covers. Other attractive exhibits were sculptures done via metal-casting, beautiful pottery pieces, and several other items of handicrafts based on traditional tribal art. All the pottery pieces were carved and baked by the boys themselves. The art teacher Bidyut Dutta looked visibly proud of the handiwork of his boys, even though it is his first academic session at the school. The meticulous display of works in various art forms looked attractive. Mr Bansal, who was taken around the various exhibitions by school’s Proctor Ms Indubala Singh, was greatly impressed by the amazingly high quality of the products on display.
A fascinating project was on “The Versatile Rubber” in which Class V children illustrated the journey of the rubber from the tree to the factory, highlighting its multiple uses and applications. The Class IV project took the viewer to the Mars and convinced him that the second smallest planet in the Solar System possessed both water and energy source. The children seemed excited at the prospects of Mars becoming a habitable planet like the Mother Earth. The Class III children went one better by creating a world of unique creatures underneath the sea. It was pointed out that oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface and its denizens include coral reefs, sea grass meadows, seamounts, crabs, giant squids etc
Spectacular March Past
The March Past by the boys was spectacular indeed. Mr Bansal, who took the salute, seemed much impressed by their smart turnout and rhythm. No wonder then that the school has always annexed the March Past trophy every year at the DDSA. Yoga and games are being given the prime importance in which Brownians have shown their prowess time and again.
There were two very interesting plays at the Tamarind Theatre. “The Cobbler and the Elves” was an entertaining musical play that ended with an exhilarating feeling of positivity and cheerfulness. The Hindi play “Ghasi Ram Kotwal” by Vijay Tendulkar depicted the exploitation perpetrated by powerful people. Swagat Bela Aaj Aye based on Raga Hans Dhwani struck the emotional chords of the audience. The school band rocked to the utmost enjoyment of the children. The teacher in charge later confided that “we absolutely believe that the teacher and the taught have to connect with love and when they do so, everyone and everything blossoms.” And I believed her after having witnessed the incredible performances by the children.
Tyagi is a 24X7 headmaster
Much of the credit for the current turnaround in the school’s exceptional performance both in the academics and co-curricular fields goes to SK Tyagi who took over as its headmaster four years ago. Tyagi has been a long time staffer at the school having joined it 38 years ago in July 1976. “Truthfully, Tyagi is a 24X7 headmaster and actively involved in almost everything that happens in the school,” confided a teacher. However, it is an open secret on the campus that it is Ma’am Indubala Singh, though formally called a ‘Proctor’, who is the woman behind this terrific improvement in the fortunes and the reputation of the school in almost every field of activity.
Founded in 1926, Col. Brown School is the oldest residential boys’ school in Dehra Dun. It has made tremendous progress over the past 88 years and is today ranked as one of the best boys’ schools in the country. With an expansive campus spread over 22 acres, it boasts of several large playgrounds and 10 boarding houses. Its theatre named Tamarind has well equipped projection rooms, activity rooms, green rooms etc. Its students have over the years excelled both in academics and co-curricular activities. In fact, the preferred choice of many of the students in the earlier years used to be the armed forces. Several of its alumni rose to become generals, senior bureaucrats and corporate executives. Most well known of school’s alumnus was India’s former Prime Minister VP Singh who was in the school from 1944 to 1949. Today with the changing priorities and newer job profiles, the Brownians have found niche positions in large number of emerging industries both in India and abroad.

Teacher`s Day 2014

September 23, 2014

Theacher`s Day has always been a great day for the Brownians which has always brought forth the talent of the students and proved the saying,”School is the best place to discover ones potential.”

The melodious “Guru Vandhna” by Saurav Kumar and the welcome song gave a splendid start to the gala event. “Boss comes to Dinner” by our tiny tots was very entertaining. The video clips displayed by the comperes spoke rightly the value of teacher in our life. The protagonist of the English Drama seeking revenge of this brothers death created a great suspense and thrill amongst the audience. The wordings of the choir “Bande hai hum usske” brought a new hope amongst the audience. For the first time the Brownian stage witnwssed contemporary dance. The second clipping very well proved the prayer “Guru Hi Maat Pita Guru Hi Shakti….”The August gathering also the witnessed the wits of “Mullah Nasar Uddin”.   The hip hoppers made the audience sway along with them. The last clipping illustrated the famous quote “A good teacher a worth hundred gems”. The band presented four outstanding numbers which made the audience rock and roll. The comedy fillers evoked great laughter among the audience and flooded away al the stress of the staff. The last item was the Hindi play which depicted how politicians transform trifles into riots.

With this we bid adieu to Teacher`s Day 2014, with hopes galore for the next year.

T.W. Phillips Inter- School English Debate

September 23, 2014

On the 21st of August, 2014, Atul Sharma of Standard XII participated in the T.W. Phillips Inter- School English Debate at Wynberg – Allen School, Mussoorie. The School stood first in the debate which was a three round competition.

In the first round, Colonel Brown was paired up with Musoorie International School and qualified for round two while speaking against the motion of the House which stated “The present generation is much more honest than those before it.”

Round two was based on the parliamentary format of the debate and Atul was teamed up with Mussorie International School and Guru Nanak Fifth Centenary School (girl). He spoke against the motion of the House which stated this: “Voting should be made compulsory in India” and also handled the rebuttal for his team. Barely managing to scrape through to the third and final round along with Mussoorie International School,
St. George`s College and Unison World School, Atul Sharma won the third round (and debate) while speaking against the motion of the house which stated that “ it should be legal in India for women to carry firearms.”
A question was asked by the judge as well in this round.
Brownian`s proved once again that they are just as deadly at the lectern as they are on the fields!

Inter School Fest

September 23, 2014

On the 1st and 2nd of September, twenty two Brownians went to Wynberg – Allen School, Mussoorie, to participate in their two day Cultural Fest “Capta Caelum- Reach for The Sky.” We took part in twelve events and secured third position in three events, namely, Turncoat (Atul Sharma, XII), Do-A-Duet (Atul Sharma -XII, Tarun Singh -XII, Aman Negi -XI, Jigmat Angchuk -X, Siddharth Gupta- X) and Ad- World (Md. Daniyal -X, Vishwaraj Saini -X, Atul Sharma -XII). The boys really enjoyed the fun- filled two days and are looking forward to similar events in the future with the aspirations of doing even better! All of the participants learnt a lot and got a chance to boost their self-confidence by being able to interact with other schools. This was probably the first time that Colonel Brown took part in a non sport-related event on such a large scale and the experience and memories from events such as these will stay al for long!

Celebrating 67 years of freedom

August 16, 2014

On the 15th of August 2014, Friday, Brownian’s celebrated the 67th year of Indian Independence. The day started at 7:45AM in front of the Proctor`s office where the flag was hoisted at around 8:15 am by the Headmaster, Mr. S.K. Tyagi, followed by the National Anthem song by the School Choir.

The National Anthem was followed by the Patriotic song “ Janani Janmabhoomi” and “ Jai Hind !”

The special assembly lasted a mere 15 minutes but that was more than enough to rouse the patriotic feeling in every Brownian present. Jai Hind!
