DPA Commemorates the Inventor of Printing

One of the greatest inventions made in the history of mankind is known as Printing which spreads written knowledge and is used as the main tool for imparting education to one and all.

To preserve the memory of Johannes Gutenberg, who invented the art of printing over six centuries ago and who is regarded as the Father of the Art of Printing, Delhi Printers’ Association has been celebrating Printers’ Day every year since 2004 by organising different types of philanthropic events for the under-privileged class of the society.

This year’s Printers’ Day was celebrated by DPA at a famous South Delhi orphanage called Chhatravas Chandra Arya Vidya Mandir by serving meals to nearly 500 inmate girl students and staff. To mark the day some members of DPA and the executive body members had assembled there for a brief function at 1.30pm.

The Chhatravas Chandra Arya Vidya Mandir and its Daryaganj branch known as Arya Anathalaya are run by wellknown Chandravati Chaudhry Smarak Trust which was started by the first Deputy Mayor of Delhi Shri Desraj Chaudhry to propagate the concept of Arya Samaj. After him it was taken over by his son Padamshri Viresh Pratap Chaudhry who was a senior legal luminary in the Supreme Court renowned as a champion of the cause of downtrodden people of the society. Now the Trust is being successfully looked after by his son and the current Secretary Shri Nitinjya Chaudhry, who is not only a sharp and promising advocate, but he is also always available to cooperate and extend his assistance to DPA. This illustrious family Trust is also involved in various social causes.

As soon as the school closed for the day at 2.00pm, the students were seated in a large dining hall for their mid-day meal which was served by Executive Committee and some general members of DPA with active assistance by orphanage staff.

It was a pleasant coincidence that the day was also marked by the birthday of Shri Nitinjya Chaudhry. He was felicitated with a bouquet and a small souvenir. Later on, all these persons had lunch together with the school staff.
