LG Commends Devaki Arya Putri Pathshala’s Century-Long Legacy | Empowering Deprived Girls in J&K For me to participate in Devaki Arya Putri Pathshala is like visiting a holy pilgrimage, said the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu & Kashmir, Shri Manoj Sinha. In 1910, Shri Devaki Devi, she is definitely an admirer of the sacred spirit with which she established this school for the education of girls coming from weaker sections or deprived sections. When motives are filled with sacred sentiments and the objectives are so filled with sacred feelings that they cannot be limited to any scope and that is why this school is engaged in the service of the weaker society despite all the challenges, said the Lt Governor. For one hundred and twelve years, the school has been a witness to the changes taking place in the individuals, society and nation. It stands on the strong foundation of Indian culture. For the school, the discovery of new ideas and personal development has always been of paramount importance, explained LG. Today, our girls are creating new records in the field of education. And through education, girls of Jammu and Kashmir are achieving many achievements in the field of invention, innovation and entrepreneurship. I can personally say that I have been attending convocation ceremonies of many universities in the last three years. Today I can make this prediction that I believe that our girls will be the architects of the future of golden Jammu and Kashmir, LG said. Present India is a witness to the fact that the manner in which our girls have led the development, no one has been able to stop them from reaching the pinnacle of success. In the last few years, the current Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi has always shown commitment to giving respect and rights to women power.
