Student Life @ DoMS

"Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority, and don't interfere as long as the policy you've decided upon is being carried out." — Ronald Reagan

The students of DoMS are a reflection of its capability to produce renaissance managers of the future. They are the products of a transformation brought about by a rigorous academic curriculum, a healthy and interactive study culture and a broad-based orientation, as well as an inculcation in the values and morals which will make the students responsible managers and outstanding citizens of tomorrow. This is the purpose for the existence of the school.
At DoMS, we firmly believe in producing well rounded personalities, hence it isn't all work and no play at our campus. Numerous skills and talents have been unearthed from amongst our students and to allow these talents to flourish, numerous clubs have been started for likeminded individuals to meet and polish their skills. Along with that, there are social services clubs to allow students get in touch with reality and do their bit for the upliftment of the society as a whole.

DIWALI CELEBRATIONS
 

The festival of lights is an outcome of an epic tale that spreads the teachings of unity and harmony. Light over darkness, hope over despair, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil as even the UN lights up with this regard, this year. Diwali, where in parts of the world light up with candles, earthen lamps and lanterns to commemorate the festivities and Indians celebrate with breathtakingly beautiful fireworks on display, with friends and family, was celebrated in DoMS as well, to brighten the evening. Starting with the lighting of “diyas” and decorating the floral design to the “aarti” and sweets offered to God, every student’s heart delved into devotional moments for the festivity. Soon after, students took charge of bursting of crackers in full swing. With subtle background music, dinner was served and it was a sumptuous one! No sooner the dinner was done, desi beats were played and the whole night turned into a DJ party. The whole event was more or less a festival celebrated at a home away from home! As the festival marks the return of Lord Rama to Ayodhya from his 14-year-long exile, the whole concept of Diwali to spread the culture and enrich the current state of affairs of a nation, was seen clearly in DoMS!

All the first year and second year students coloured each other in 'Gulal'.
