Fresher :
I am Cadet Mayank Thakur. “LIFE IN NCC BEGINS WITH A SHOOT AND ENDS WITH A THUMB AND A STAGE IN BETWEEN- WE BECOME ASPIRING CADET.” I was enrolled in NCC in starting week of August, this year in one of the highly escalated unit among Chandigarh directorate, a unit which is known for its contribution in Nation-Building and the one who has won glory in many Group and Directorates level competition, the “3 PB BN NCC, LDH”. When I reached for the recruitment, I was amazed to see the josh of our college students, around 300 students were present and only 26 have the chance of becoming cadets that day. I was nervous but I composed by thoughts and grew faith in myself that howsoever the selection process will be I will throw my best and get the “gold” out of the situation. One thing that kept me always high were the motivating words of the seniors who were on duty and of course their uniform that inspired me to give my best. On the very first day, we reported to the sports complex sharp at 1600hrs and we interacted freely to our seniors. Then we introduced ourselves among each other including our seniors. Then from the next day the real drill initiated. We learnt basics like standing in attention and stand at ease position. We learnt parade and many different things that is essential not in NCC but also in different spheres of life. There were also punishments if we did a mistake or didn’t follow our seniors’ orders. Every day, we used to run 3 to 4 rounds of the track and we observed a change in our physique. I am able to do more pushups now. We were not only taught drill parades but skills were inculcated in our personality that defined us as an officer. Army personnel gave regular visit and have conversation with us. Me and my other NCC mates are now more inclined and focused towards defence forces. Jai Hind!!!!!!

Experienced :
My self PB16SDA162660 UO PARTH DWIVEDI. Two things that have become my muscle memory- commander and my rifle. “Holding, aiming, triggering” for my rifle and “Ji Shabh/ Ok Sir, Jai Hind” to my commander. TSC (Thal Sainik Camp) was the first camp I attended. We had to stay in the NCC academy of Malout- no shops, no signs of crowded human activity at least for a radius of five kilometers. The food and bathrooms were a quality trademark that would never slip from my memory. We wake at 0500 hrs, make ourselves fresh, go for P.T., return to our barracks for bath and breakfast, report to ground for drill parades in uniform, attend lectures, have short intervals, then a long queue for lunch and rest. Again ready for lecture, then OT, followed by roll call and ended with cultural performance. We were away from our home but nearer to our descendants- the nature. By the end of the tenth day, we learned that humans can adapt to any situation. Adding to it, the discipline that those rigorous NCC drills inculcated into us. We undergone the practical application of the subjects like Map reading and FCBC. In the last week of April, came the big new for me -THE SHOOTING CAMP, in which I had 100% interest and that talent of mine made me selected in five base camp of three days each. Then there was an Inter Battalion Competition. But the shooting was a moment of art work for me. I would decorate my target like anything. My hard work of two years of NCC pays and I got a Gold medal for Best Shooter in competition, also our team got silver medal for 2nd rank in all the battalions of Ludhiana group. After that there is an Inter Group Competition in Ropar that I attended and filled my brain with soul of memories. !!JAI HIND!!
