Firstly, I am delighted to congratulate the school on its Golden Jubilee and wish
the faculty and students all the very best for future strides they make. I joined
TIS in 1991 so I carry 12 years of extremely fond memories, some of which I
know are buried in a time capsule under the school and I hope will surface one
I have watched the school transform and efficiently keep up with changing
times and all the credit goes to the vision and hard work of faculty and students
alike. I feel fortunate that my teachers were always extremely supportive of me
and encouraged me to achieve my goals. I have pursued my career in science,
the foundation of what was laid here at TIS.
I wish TIS, EoK all the very best. It has been a long time and I hope to visit the
campus sometime soon. I am certain a basket of surprises await me.
TIS has shaped me into a complete individual that I am today. It wasn’t just a school for
me, but a place where I could bring my whole self each day and add an extra feather to my
cap of experiences, learnings and values. My school has taught me to be content with
myself, but at the same time always try and reach out for the stars. I shall always remain
indebted to TIS EOK for giving me the innumerable opportunities being part of various
societies at school, giving me positions of responsibilities, or giving me the exposure to take
part in various inter and intra school competitions. Each and every experience has helped
me come so far in life. It has given me not only the confidence to express myself openly but
also the ability to face any challenges in life with ease. If it wasn’t for what I had learnt at
school, I would not have been able to make a mark for myself in the corporate world. I feel
privileged to be a small part of this fraternity which is not just an institution of education,
but also an institution of values and skills.
I am proud to be called a Tagorean today and definitely Aham Yogya Asmi!!
Some of the best years of my life were spent at
TIS EOK. I spent 5 years there, and not one
day was dull. I used to miss school during
holidays. I sincerely thank all our faculty and
Ms. Suman Nath for all the wonderful
opportunities they gave me to excel and learn.
It has shaped me into the person I am today.

It’s the after thoughts which you have after something is long gone—and that’s
exactly what has happened- to this day- since I left TIS seven years ago. It never
occurred to me when I was still in the folds of our school, how much I will miss my
school, my wonderful teachers, my friends, and every little thing which was a part of
it. But as the years passed, the longing for the school and the attached nostalgia kept
on increasing, and now when I am independent enough to be on my own, I wish I
could go back to the school and live those carefree days under the watchful eyes of
my teachers where I could freely run around in the school ground or munch on
Aunty’s awesome idli-dosa.
I would be forever grateful to each and every teacher who taught me and helped me
shape into the person I am today. The list would be endless if I were to name each
one of my loveliest and dearest teachers… I really miss you all. You were our
mothers outside our homes, who taught us, scolded us, punished us, slapped us (and
yes, we totally deserved it), and despite being such a terrible headache, you still
loved us.
It feels great to be a part of one of the best schools in Delhi, something which I will
always cherish. Thank you TIS. And Ma’ams, I wish could do much more than just
saying a heartfelt thank you. You helped us to become what we are today.
TIS, just by its mention brings
smile on the face of all
Tagoreans. We have some
fond golden memories of our
alma mater and would owe
our success and values to it.
The memories are still fresh in my mind of being a student of TisEok. It is only
possible to have got so much in life because of all teachers of Tis Eok. I from my
bottom of my heart would like to thank you all for making me what i am today and
for what i have achieved so far by becoming an officer in merchant navy. Today i feel
proud to be part of Golden Jubilee of my good school. Tis Eok is a school which has
always given good environment to study and supported and appreciated us at every
level of our journey during school to become a good human being and a proud
I would like to thank you Ms. Suman Nath for your blessings and guidance for my
bright future.
Miss my school very much.

Its been a really exciting experience studying at TIS
EOK. What we are today is an absolute result of
what we were nurtured at TIS EOK. It’s a proud
feeling of being alumni of the school. In fact in all
my visits to India, I ensure that I meet the teachers
who saw me as a kid, loved as a mother and
mentored as a Guru.
Was really excited when after years of passing out,
I went back to the school and trained the teachers
and students on Spoken English.
I would want to know the dates of the celebration if
any has been decided yet. Even if it takes for me to
travel to India, I would love to do so and celebrate
our success together with TIS EOK
Some unforgettable memory of the
place that nurture, protected and
prepared for the next world..Just
cannot describe.

The 10yrs. of my student life which I spent in TIS were the most memorable
ones. Starting from Mrs. Vijay Kapoor (my first and most lovable teacher) till
Mrs. Juneja all were excellent and not to forget my personal favourite (Mrs.
Kavita). They all gave us real values and shaped all of us as the real intelligent
fighters in life. Our batch was considered the naughtiest and most Intelligent of
our times. We had toppers within 0.5 -1 mark difference and that’s why all our
class mates are doing wonders in their own lives. I was a class topper from I – V
std. and maintained my good marks till class X. Though the infrastructure in
those days was limited (like not too many sections for each class etc.) but we still
made the most out of the things available. Pandey maam, our strict but lovable
Sports teacher is always remembered by each one of us. Mrs. Dara, Mrs. Das,
Mrs. Usha, Mrs. Gaur, Mrs. Sharma, Mrs. Arti Kailash, Mrs. Anamika (wow), I
can still remember those wonderful days we had in school with these strict but
lovable teachers!! Now the school has changed a lot and I read a lot of
events/happenings of the school and feel proud that I am an Alumni of this.
May it keep the reputation and be rated amongst the top 5 schools in Delhi.
Being a Tagorean has not just been a
privilege but a journey rich in learning and
full of experiences. I feel proud to share that
a student who dreaded getting ready for
school in the morning, turned out to become
the school topper in CBSE, Class XII and I
owe it all the teachers of the TIS family. The
founding stones of my education paradigm,
have been laid by the teachers of TIS, who
have not only helped me evolve as a positive
human, but also, helped me emerge as a
leader, but also hone my skills and excel in
every task I undertake, by taking part in the
co-curricular activities and at the same time
striking a balance with the academics..
(Physics Graduate from DU, Currently Pursuing MCA from IGDTU)
I studied in Tagore International School, East of Kailash since I was in
nursery. Like any other child, I have had my share of ups and downs. But,
I can proudly say that most of my experiences have been great.
School is our second home. It is where we learn to read and write as
well as our manners. In my case, the teachers and peer group has been
very supportive.
I am not a straight-A student but I have other talents which were
recognized by my ever encouraging teachers. They made me realize my
potential and helped me tap it. And my Principal Ma’am has always been
a guiding force.
My friends in school have also been loving and caring. I always had a
shoulder to rely on. My experiences would be incomplete without them.
The best part about our school is that everyone is given an opportunity
to showcase his/her talent. The extra-curricular activities always bring
out new talents and the best within us all.
It bleeds my heart to part from my alma mater, the place where I grew
up from an innocent 3 year old to a 17 year old teenager. It gave me the
best years of my life and it’s impossible to repay it by any means.
I am proud to be a Tagorean!!!!

Second Home’ is the word that pops in my mind when I think
of Tagore.
The beautiful memories and experiences that I was privileged
though to get in this place will forever be etched in my mind.
Tagore International School, East of Kailash has made me the
confident, skilled and lively person that I am today. It opened
me up to a whole new world of opportunities and platforms
where I got a chance to exhibit my talents and abilities.
I shall always cherish these golden years of my life.

I was reading a book when my phone suddenly rang. My phone screen flashed with the words ‘Minakshi Ma’am’. I got
surprised. She asked me if I could write an article for the golden jubilee magazine of our school. My response? An
affirmation with a big smile on my face! I was so much excited to do something as a ‘Tagorean’ after more than four
years of graduating. I spent the day recalling the amazing fourteen years spent in my school and eventually decided to
write about some of those recollections. My school life can be easily divided into two parts. One till Class IX and other
from Class X. The reason behind this is very simple. Till IX, I was an obedient student, involved more into academics with
a little exposure here and there about the world outside my books. Life somehow changed in class X. I was found more
outside my classrooms than inside them. Not because my interest in academics declined. Never! But because I was
hopping from one staff room to another, from one classroom to another, from the auditorium to the library, just so that I
could rehearse for the events that had lined up. And honestly, that is one experience that I am sure will be in my
memories my whole life. I remember rehearsing for five different events at a time, keeping my fingers crossed just
before going on the stage for a debate that I do not mix up material prepared for the one that was just two days after the
former; going to teachers and asking them to explain me the stuff I had missed when instead of me, my school bag was
sitting on my seat and trying not to burst out with laughter seeing their expressions at my confused state; realizing that I
had not been to most of the PT classes in the year and so I had absolutely no idea what sport the whole class was
learning or playing. Enter Class XI and a badge with my name and ‘Vice-Head Girl’ written on it. I guess the previous year
had given me enough practice for what was in store for the next two years. Loads of lists, cabinet register, meetings and
the arguments in them, organizing events, being physically present at one place but mentally at six! And to top it all was
the pressure of new subjects to study and of course the various competitions I had to prepare for. Doing justice to the
oath taken at the Investiture Ceremony was not an easy task at all. But it brought some unknown pleasures. Playing
with kids while I was on my duties had become a part of my daily life; finding myself more and more attached to the
people in the cabinet and the teachers involved with it; the school podium had started giving me a feeling of comfort
and I did not want to leave it after my final speech on the Graduation ceremony. I won’t be exaggerating if I say that TIS
made me what I am today. It gave me the confidence to strive through the hard times; it gave me friends for my life; it
taught me how teachers can be great friends as well; it taught me how to find happiness in the smallest of things; it

School is the best experience of my life till now. Regarding TIS, I could not have asked for a better school
with one of the best teachers I have got. I learnt a lot from teachers like Behl Ma’am, Shabnam Ma’am,
Geetu Ma’am, and Reeta Ma’am (our music teacher). I was the captain of the Netaji House in my last
year of school, and I had great fun in trying to be a good leader, succeeding at times, and not at some.
School gave a chance to be a leader in something, and for that I am so grateful, because I got valuable
tips on how to lead my life in the future, i.e. right now.
I have been a part of this school since nursery, so I spent 14 years and always felt like a part of a big
family whenever I was in school. The library played a special role in my school life, and I was always
known as the one who picked out those books to issue which most others did not, and Virmani Ma’am
knew me through that (probably not anymore though). I had a great set of friends since primary, found
and lost many friends in my school life. My two best friends are still from school, and are a huge support
system to me even now.
To sum up, I would say that I always considered my school as my second home, and felt great pride in
being a part of this institution. I met some amazing people, had great fun, learnt a lot of lessons, both
academic and personal, had my share of bad days as well, but everything turned out to be just fine, and
that is only because this school meant so much to me. I am so nostalgic while writing this, and it makes
me miss my school even more.
I just want to end this by saying that “I am proud to be a Tagorean, and I always will be.”

TIS is one of those institutions that helps a child grow as a person.
It caters to all their needs. My experience as a student has been
nothing less than a roller coaster ride. It has been an experience
both exhilarating experiences and also of hard learning. I would say
that everyone needs as a child ‘A TIS Experience’. It is one that’ll be
cherished throughout one’s life. No one can forget the teachings
that this school has taught, those that no book can teach. The
credits must go to the faculty and the principal. I as a part of the
alumni of this school would want to thank them all for their vital role
in making me a person as I am today.

Tagore International School is a second
home for me. Given a chance I would like
to come back and attend some classes that I
bunked during those times (although they
are countable). The school did not only give
education but what we received was
Knowledge, teachers were mentors and
lunch time was not only eating period but a
chance to grab friends’ lunch boxes. If you
would ask me what I miss the most, it would
be my favorite music classes and P.T.
periods. Thank you for giving us an
opportunity to express our school days.
TIS on the TOP”
Tagore is the best school anyone could ever ask for. It has made
me a better personwhile growing up and has made sure I am
grounded to my roots and has really groomed me well. There is
not one thing I would like to change about the school. All the
moments spent her with teachers from nursery to Class 12th will
be cherished always as long as I live.I have a wish that I would
want my children to study in this school and experience what I
did while growing up.
To All the teachers and mentors, I say thank you for being the
most amazing role model for us.
I spent my entire schooling life from class 1 to class 12 in TIS, EoK so
it was a second home to me, and very dear to me. Whatever I am
today has been in a large measure been shaped by TIS. I have very
fond memories of the school when it only had the old building and a
small playground and then we acquired the big land and expanded. I
still remember our underground library a unique thing in those days
and probably even now and our cute little sports room in a porta
cabin. All the lovely friends and teachers have had a positive
influence on me and I am happy to be still in touch with many of
Let me start by saying that I miss school
everyday….when I look at a school bus,look at
school kids, drive past a school….as I said everyday. School shapes your future and tell you
what, I am pretty happy with where I am in my life. So a big thank you to the best school in
the world . Thank you to all the teachers and everything they taught me, from course
lessons to life lessons.I started school in mid 80’s and have seen a lot of changes made to
the school building. I particularly remember the open corridor on the second floor that was
very unique - now covered and the extra classes made along with the huge Rabindra Nath
Tagore image. I have seen the canteen go from a 2x2 in size to what it is now. Talking about
canteen reminds me of how we used to buy one glass of Fountain Pepsi and share amongst
at least 10 of us……..yaar 5 rupees was a big deal back then…the good old school
days…..damn I miss school. Sarla aunty ki idli sambhar, chole kulche ka thela, kwality walls
ka thela, bhushan bhaiya ki canteen…..kya din the! Feeling Nostalgic, I think I can keep
writing about my experiences all night. I had a blast at school and talk to my mates and my
family about school all the time.A big thanks to the school and all the best!

There are so many things that I can say about my
school. After all being there for 13 years from KG to
12th have left me with so many wonderful memories
that will be cherished forever. The overall environment
and the ever supporting faculty helped me all the way
to grow my potential and realize my dreams. The
amazing support that I have received from all the
teachers that taught me during my stay here and the
numerous extracurricular activities that happened in
the school helped me a lot in developing my overall
personality. A heartiest congratulations to our school
for completing 50 years

participating in any events but I was very fond of Sports and I
always dreamt of being the Sports Captain of my school,
which I succeeded in doing so. And I thanks a lot to my Sports
