To form a fraternity comprising of all former students, that strives towards a common goal of living up to the standards of Sai principles by being an integral part of the school and its activities and to achieve in unity, the goals of service and love for all, at all times

T h e   F o r m a t i o n
While some of us were toiling our brains for the school day project that we took up, some of the others were thinking well ahead of the rest and proposed to make this an official organization and to get it registered. And so we registered the association with the funds that were collected there instantly at the School day function. Swami’s words that funds will never be a limiting factor to a Sai activity has always held fats even to this day and to this moment. We never encountered any difficulty for funds at any time. Contributions flew from all sides and never stopped a planned activity. We always ended up with a handsome balance. More important is that funds came in when we required the most. As and when we needed more, some unregistered students would come and pitch in their membership fee. Events of such unsolicited patronage of funds stood testimony to the purity and purpose behind our actions as a group and veered us in the appropriate direction. We were satisfied and encouraged by the fact that Swami was guiding us all the while.

The school day and association day---- was a big hit. We prepared and mailed out special invitations to all the old students. A special area was allotted for old students and our membership rose from hundred to two hundred in just an hour. Old students presented two special items for the school day. One was the wonderful song Tu Pyaar ka sagar hai, praising our beloved Lord and the other was the Tug of war, which the old students won very dramatically, despite being old (and in spite of PT sir’s hand on the other side). Winning the ceremonial Volleyball and Throw ball games became a habit to the old students and so did the two groups of old students (boys and girls) received their prizes yet again. The objective of this narration is to re-live those golden days of the past and meet all those we moved with, all those we fought with, all those we adored and all those we loved. Not forgetting our teachers, whom, though we call “teachers”, are more like our friends, who take pride in looking at all of us as their children and recalling how they taught (sometimes sweetly and sometimes with a little bitterness, all for our improvement) and in the process, feel the joy as we relate our achievements. That very day, the name STUDENTS OF SAI took birth as the official title of our association and everyone began to address it with love as SOS. We nominated a body of members to plan and coordinate all our activities. Although the composition of the body changed with time, the core members remained intact, as did the spirit. As the size of the family began to grow, responsibilities also grew in proportion and students started to distribute work.

This was the beginning of the blooming of our SOS flower.
