EXCERPT FROM ARTICLE WRITTEN IN1997
  • It may be of relevance to note that The Indian
    Military Academy, The National Defence Academy
    and The Officers Training Academy are at best
    assembly lines designed to mass produce officers
    at a certain turnover every year and have little
    relevance in inculcating traits required of an
    officer and a gentleman.The point may be
    debatable, but is sadly true.

  • Efforts to fix weaknesses are ineffective.

  • Each one had tasted the corporate world and
    decided that they definitely had to be someplace
    else. Each had a vision of his own and dreamt of
    it every single day.The question was how and when
    were they going to achieve what they wanted to
    because it would be their toughest assignment
    till date.
  • Each had become a better person after
    spending time together. Each had made a mark for
    the better on the others lives. What had made
    them a cohesive bunch was not their abilities to
    read each others strengths but rather recognise
    their own deficiencies and feed off each others
    strengths.
  • All of them may not sail across the ocean of
    their dreams but at least they would have tried.
