Divinity Society

The Divinity Society is integral to the dissemination of the ideals which form the foundation of this institution. It imparts the message of humanity, love, truth, honesty and courage to our students and staff. The sole purpose of this is to make the students aware of these values. The society organizes various divinity functions such as Shabad and KirtanDarbars, Seminars and Paper Reading Contests on the life and works of Sikh Gurus and on comparative religious studies. Every Thursday, the diwan sahib is held at 1:00p.m. in the college gurdwara sahib. The students perform paath followed by Kirtan for an hour. Kirtan and tabla classes are held by the trained students of society for the other enthusiasts.

Mata Sundri Smiriti Diwas is celebrated on 12th March every year as the Founder’s Day of the college. Besides these events, the society also conducts an annual event “Bani-Kirtan and Declamation Competition” in which students from schools and colleges across Delhi participate.
