DPA celebrates Printers’ Day-2016
Since the inception of Printers’ Day in 2004, Delhi Printers’ Association has been celebrating its Printers’ Day on February 24 every year to commemorate the birth anniversary of the Father of the Art of Printing Johannes Gutenberg who was born in Germany in the 16th century. The day marks one of the greatest inventions in the history of mankind called printing that spreads written knowledge and imparts education to one and all. This noble cause is celebrated to remember the great inventor by helping the less-privileged people of the society.
This year’s Printers’ Day was celebrated in a different way. The executive body of DPA had organised a simple and brief function at one of the prominent orphanages of Delhi and provided lunch to the inmates. The lunch was served by former presidents Vijay Mohan, Arvind Kumar Gupta, Arun Bansal, Vinod Rajpal, Gulshan Marwah, Mukesh Kaushik and Badri Kumar Singh. Other dignitaries present were DPA president OP Dewan, honorary general secretary Sunil Jain, treasurer Rajiv Gupta, vice-presidents Meghraj Bhati and Rajesh Sardana and executive members.
Later on, school textbooks donated by EC member Atul Goel were distributed to the needy students and the remaining books were handed over to the management for future requirement.
