These lines by Late Major Somnath Sharma always aroused enthusiasm in my heart and I always thought of becoming an officer in the armed forces. Hello Everyone! I am Priyanshu Pandey and I hail from Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh. I completed my education from the very prestigious institute known as “Rashtriya Military School”, Banglore. Since school days, I always read the news about the bravery of Indian Airforce Pilots & about the Su-30MKI and was fascinated about it. While studying in Military school, becoming an Airforce pilot became my passion.
I started dreaming of myself in that blue uniform with stars on my shoulders and was excited to think about the journey between "पहला पग - अंतिम पग". After clearing my NDA written examination, I was full of josh but was a little intimidated by SSB.
I got to know about “Georgians Defence Academy” from one of my friends. In Georgians academy, they never try to impose their thoughts on you, rather they help you in identifying your strengths and weaknesses. Daily lecture and group discussion puffed with current affairs helped me polish my conversational skills. Daily dose of motivation and feedback given after every activity by Kuwar pratap sir and Deepak sir was the highlight. They gave attention to each one of us and helped us to work upon our mistakes. Both of them always used to tell us that we don't coach here but enhance the personality of an individual . The academy surely did Justice by producing such wonderful results at SSB. This is how I was able to get recommended from SSB at my very first attempt and for this,I thank both my mentors and the academy. And for everyone aspiring to join the army, always believe in yourself and be positive in life.
