Promoting national integration through AINSC

NCC cadets from various States showcasing their creativity in a ship-modelling competition organised as part of All India Nau-Sainik Camp-2013 in Visakhapatnam on Sunday.— Photo: A. MANIKANTA KUMARWith a bundle of thin wooden strips, sandpapers, blue print and a model kit spread over the table, cadets get busy giving shapes to their model ships. They have only 72 hours, spread over a week, to convert their structure into operational mode.

Each cadet has something specific to learn from the experience. While Megha from Gujarat finds out that it is the hull that plays a crucial role in the ship building, Faizal from Jammu, says that keel acts as the backbone of the craft. For Nirmal, who represents Rajasthan, fitting the motor in a limited space is extremely challenging.

It was a reflection of mini-India tucked up in a limited space to exhibit the fine qualities of learning, sharing and caring. The art of time management is evident in every aspect as the NCC cadets get a decent exposure to various integral layers of naval operations at the on-going All India Nau-Sainik Camp-2013 (AINSC).

This year, the 12-day camp brought in a total of 590 cadets — 204 girls and 386 boys from 17 directorates of NCC across the country — to share a rich experience of teamwork. Under the supervision of Andhra Pradesh Directorate and Deputy Camp Commandant Colonel V.N. Bhardwaj, competitions such as firing and boat pulling were held at INS Circars, Eastern Naval Command here on Sunday. As part of personality development capsule, Training Officer Colonel Sunny Kurian and Lieutenant Colonel G.D. James joined the group discussions.

Highlighting the importance of the event, Camp Commandant Commodore M Dimri said, “The camp provides a platform for the cadets to understand diverse cultures and lifestyles and develop team spirit. The competitions and training programmes focus on building confidence among the cadets and encourage them to follow suit.”

According to the camp coordinator N. Ramakrishna, Andhra Pradesh Directorate grabbed the first position in drill competition whereas Odisha and Maharashtra secured second and third positions.
