I came across this very old newspaper clipping which reminded me of Ankit Raj, an awesome person who taught me the value of teamwork !

Jamshedpur, Aug. 21: When steel city schools are in the habit of doing their hometown proud, why should DBMS English School be an exception?
Students of DBMS recently bagged the runners-up trophy at a global event, beating more than 70 national and international schools. It was the first time that the school participated in Macfair International, organised by City Montessori School in Lucknow, and were declared the second best team.
The DBMS students also won the first prize for their model to test the purity of transparent liquids using refraction. They also won the third prize in the mathematics quiz and were, finally, declared the runners-up at the four-day event that began on August 2.
DBMS was represented by seven students — Ankit Mahato, Ankit Raj, Rabi Shankar Guha, Debjyoti Banerjee, Sukanya Sharma, Mrinal Ranjan and Mukesh Kumar.
“It was a huge experience. We were a little nervous, but we mingled with other students and found we were on a par with them. We have the same potential but lack exposure. But the times are changing now,” said Debjyoti. "The standard of questions asked was good, but we were equally determined to win."said Ankit Mahato.
“The opportunity came along when the students enquired about the event on the web and wanted to take a shot. We just supported them and today they have made us proud. Teachers have just guided them. The students have won because of their out-of-the-box imagination,” said Sudha Mohan, a teacher. Mohan had accompanied the students on the tour.
