DPS was privileged to be visited by Ms. Bilquis Mir, a local Kashmiri girl who made the valley proud by her achievements at national and international levels. Bilquis is the first woman from Jammu and Kashmir to coach a national team and the first woman from India to have participated in MOL ICF Sprint Racing World Cup in Kayaking and Canoeing in Szeged, Hungary, 2009. She has also made the country proud by becoming the first Indian woman to be inducted into an International Referee panel.
Bilquis Mir is a true inspiration for all our young talented children of our valley who hope to make a career in sports. She proved her metal to the world and paved way for all the sports enthusiasts to make it big in the field of sports. Our students were glad to meet her and she held an interactive session with our students. She shared her inspiring success story and experiences and encouraged them to work hard to fulfill their dreams of becoming a sports star.
