On 15th and 16th October 2016, old boys meet was held I the school. The session started with the school choir singing a hymn. It was followed by a talk on motivation by Mr.Sunny Chopra (1954) along with an audio visual presentation. This talk illustrated to the boys, how great players could become legends in their life time; it was only possible with a lot of hard work, determination and an indomitable spirit which drove them to greatness. After a tea break at 12:00 noon there was another talk by Mr. Manmohan Verma (1969). It was an interesting talk as he talked about his life at school and how the boarding life prepared him to face the future boldly. He also talked about the life at IIT Karagpur where he joined after finishing from school and how the life at CBS did help him to overcome and come at the top in IIT. As his mandate was also to talk about his professional career, he told an encouraging and inspiring description of his life in simple terms which enlightened the children. The talk by Mr.Verma was followed by the performance of school band in which four numbers were sung (Hindi and English), the energetic and live performance by Mukul Yadav touched one and all. The music teacher Mr.Mukhia sang after the children’s performance and he really impressed everyone with his range and soothing voice and many old boys requested numbers to be sung and he obliged everyone’s request with beautiful numbers. As the lunch was getting delayed the session had to come to an end. As Mr.S.L. Deepak said that audience is ‘musicaised’ so there was no point of his talk which was also planned for the same session. The evening session started with a football match and the Old boy’s team had some good old players like Col.Kuldeep Verma, Vinod Singh, Pushpendra, Saurabh Yadav, Faraz Hussain, Shubhang Gupta, Sarabdeep Singh, Deepan Garg to name a few and they were able to win the game against the present boys which was a pleasant surprise.
On 16th October after a hearty breakfast in the Dining hall, the Old Boys played a cricket match against the present boys. It was an exciting match as you really could see that some of the old boys have kept their playing skill even after leaving school. There was a tug of war which was difficult for the old boys to win. This was followed by a contributory sumptuous meal which was held on the C field.
