DPS, Kalinga is named after the eponymous kingdom of ancient eastern India. Emperor Ashoka of the Mauryan dynasty renounced military warfare after his bloody conquest of Kalinga on the banks of the river Daya, and converted to Buddhism adopting a policy of tolerance, kindness, and non-violence. According to the founders of the school -- Mahimananda Mishra, Mala Mishra, Pinaki Misra and Sangita Misra -- as Kalinga transformed Ashoka from a invader to a great emperor, DPS Kalinga seeks to revolutionize and transform school education in Odisha.
