"People like Shyama Chona never retire"
-Khushwant Singh, Babri Finale, Hindustan Times, New Delhi, 18th July 2009.

After 44 years as an educationist, a Padma Shree in 1999, a Padma Bhushan in 2008 and around 60 other awards in the field of education and social welfare, Chona is calling it a day.

14 years of formal education at DPS, R.K. Puram had me fearing Dr. Chona. One of the best orators I've witnessed, she has an intimidating persona.
DPS, R.K. Puram shall always miss her presence post 12th August. So shall every student who ever knew her.
