What can be said about the man who changed not only the appearance but also the mighty heart of DPS Mathura Road. He brought in a source of purpose, a sense of urgency and a definite focus to turn things around for the better. One would visualize a strict no-nonsense persona for an achiever of this caliber but he is far removed from it. He is dignified yet humble, tough in his belief, feels with his heart and is entrenched in history but soars like a poet. His polite demeanour and warm smile reassures students and wins over adversaries.

What can be said about a human being who is a visionary, an icon and a leader par excellence - words fail us but unitedly we say

"Sir we are proud of you"

Our Principal Mr. M.I.Hussain is an educationist par excellence, with a mission to impart quality education with his rich experience and expertise in this field. He is a very passionate educator, motivating and inspiring both students and teachers. In one of the assemblies of Junior School, the Principal spoke on LIFE, I had quickly noted down in my almanac which I would like to share with everyone. He said:

  • Life is an opportunity, make the most of it
  • Life is an adventure, enjoy every moment of it.
  • Life is a game, play it and win it.
  • Life is a duty, we need to fulfill it.
  • Life is a challenge, face it
  • Life is a dream, realize it.
  • Life is short, don't waste it.

Such words of wisdom must be framed in everyone's mind and heart.

Respected Sir,

On behalf of the students of class III, I wish to thank you for being our greatest motivator. You have ended our procrastination by saying gently "Do it! "

Your presence at our exhibition on "Entertainment Down the Ages "as part of" The Incredible India "held on 27th Sept, 2022 was indeed very encouraging. The keen interest you displayed in every activity of the exhibition - be it the puppet show, mushaira presentation on Bollywood or even the biscope show, boosted the morale of our children besides successfully providing them an impetus to perform better in future.

Your interaction with the little ones has imbibed in their minds to "always take a pebble of action in order to build their own mountain of success."

Thank you, Sir, for being our mentor and helping all of us to blossom.

Reg- English Literary Week held in school in September-2009.

Respected Sir,

May I bring this to your kind notice that the English Literary week that was held in Junior Wing this month was extremely fascinating and informative for us.

Besides, this event show cased the school's commitment to providing an all round development environment to the children.

This has immensely benefitted the children and their knowledge in English has increased many folds in a multi dimensional mode. The young minds were at their creative best. They were learning about literary works of great authors, reading some fabulous English Books, participating in various group activities like Quiz Competition, single act plays etc. related to the promotion. What was most satisfying was that every child participated.

Keep it up Sir!

I expect that the School holds this type of events regularly, and introduce similar events for school children in other wings also.

Thanks and Regards,

Respected Sir,

You have touched us with your humane approach and we think of you with a deep sense of gratitude. Under your guidance, we have noticed that over the years, students are like 'sails' and this is also evident in your attitude - 'if you cant direct the wind, adjust the sails'.

ou are intelligent and knowledgeable and like to do things differently, with a focus on 'doing'.

Thank you for being a true teacher who defends his pupils and instills in them a confidence difficult to shatter!

Mr. Mohammed Iqrar Hussain, Principal DPS Mathura Road for over a decade now, is an educationist par excellence having faith in the future, believing in the ability of our students to emerge into great leaders- leaders who can restore our faith, return us to our foundations and help us to look toward the future with optimism and spirit.

On a constant endeavor to have students understand, embrace and employ values such as truth, integrity, competence, commitment and, above all, compassion…he is admirably handling one of the greatest challenges facing education today: that of helping our students understand the vital link between leadership and those values that sustain a democratic society- and, most important, a good society.

Under his able stewardship, the flagship school (of 125+ Delhi Public Schools both in and out of India including 2 in the US) DPS Mathura Road has risen to great prominence.

I see him loving his role of being with his students and having a great deal of patience. He has provided a welcoming environment that nurtures each student ensuring they are comfortable and at ease, whilst also ensuring that maximum learning occurs. This, coupled with a never-ending willingness to ensure that all students reach their maximum potential, constantly striving to 'reach and teach' every student under his care.

A meticulous administrator committed to his work, Mr. Hussain believes in all-round development of students. Warm and jovial, yet a disciplinarian, teaching students to distinguish between right from wrong and good from bad, he toils with zest to ensure his students excel academically and are molded into respectable and productive citizens.

I know many of his students who are holding good positions today are very grateful to him.

Patron of the DPS Alumni Association, he is extremely approachable to the alumni, helpful and courteous- and has guided us on and facilitated several events. It is, therefore, no surprise that his old students still respect and admire him, showering him with so much affection.

To get a glimpse of the poet and philosopher in the remarkable Mr. M.I. Hussain one needs to have a cup of tea and listen to him with his disarming smile.
