Way to go: A pilot of Army Parachute Regiment Training Centre flying past the mast of Indian Flag at Acharya Nagarjuna University in Guntur on Saturday.

GUNTUR: Indian Army as part of its adventure sport initiative and to promote careers in defence services, launched an expedition from Chennai to Visakhapatnam, through air, land and water and as part of that the air-borne para-motor pilots along with 25 cyclists arrived at the Acharya Nagarjuna University on Saturday evening.

So enthusiastic was the response that students on the campus, girl and boy NCC cadets from Prakasam and Guntur districts lustily cheered as soon they sighted the motorised parachutes being piloted by Naik Sunil Kumar and Hasto Sumi on the university playground. Displaying their acrobatic skills in tactfully manoeuvring the 26-k.g. turbine attached to a large parachute, they made several rounds of the ground to make a perfect landing.

Enthused by the display of courage in flying 3 hours on the para-motor from Ongole to Guntur, several girl cadets asked the 10-member flying team, which had come from Parachute Regiment Training Centre at Bangalore.

“Can we join the Army and fly taking the help of these parachutes?,” was the immediate reaction from the cadets.

Director Recruiting of Guntur Branch Recruiting Office Sanjay Singh Thakur made a power-point presentation to NCC cadets, on career opportunities in Army as direct officers and other levels. There was a large requirement of personnel and Government takes care of them very well.

Acharya Nagarjuna University, which proposes to encourage adventure sports under the Department of Physical Education, showed interest in training some of their NCC cadets and B.P.Ed and M.P.Ed students with Vice-Chancellor Y.R. Haragopal Reddy promising all possible help to the Army or NCC to begin such activities.

The five-acre land the university had been given to the NCC for its activities under Guntur Group.

The Guntur NCC Group Commander A.S.N. Rao promised to do their bit in improving the activities on the campus.

The unit here had six paraglides, but did not have a skilled trainer and would soon try to arrange one so that some cadets could make use of it.

The team of para-motorists was led by Mr. Thapa, who said it cost Rs.5 lakh and could fly up to 6,000 feet above ground with 10 litres of aviation fuel allowing them to fly for 3 hours.

Speeds vary between 20 kmph and 50 kmph depending on the wind direction.

The para-motor can climb three metres per second after the take off for which they had to run a small distance of 3 to 5 metres with the machine.

Some 35 officials supervise the programme


 

 

 


TOUGHENING PROCESS: NCC cadets from Guntur and Prakasam participating in annual camp in Chirala.

 

GUNTUR: Training in firing with real guns, living in harsh conditions and inculcating some leadership qualities formed part of a 10-day Combined Annual Training camp that concluded successfully for National Cadet Corps cadets of schools and colleges in Guntur and Prakasam districts at Chirala.

The National Cadet Corps 23 Andhra Battalion organised the Annual Training Camp- III ( CATC- III) at the VRS & YRN College Campus to inculcate qualities like discipline, adaptability, initiative, and leadership. Boy and girl cadets from six colleges and 23 schools in Guntur and Prakasam districts arrived on July 22 with programme coordinated by Commanding Officer Paramjit Singh.

It was a rich experience for the school and college students trying to cross some of the difficult hurdles like wide pits, high bars, running in the sand and parading every day after a regular drill in the morning and evening.

A disciplined lifestyle marked the 10-day stay for the students, who got up even before the sunrise and got ready for the day’s activities.

Unique experience

 

A unique experience for the 750 cadets from both the districts, went on smoothly with none of the 200 girls and other boys wishing to end the camp. Campfire was the occasion for them to display their cultural/special talents. About 35 NCC officers/officials supervised the training programme and regular guest lectures kept the cadets busy throughout the day. A blood donation camp on July 29 brought awareness among them and the need for donating in times of emergencies of medical needs.

Main focus of the camp was on the physical training, obstacle training, shooting, map reading, social and cultural activities, besides focusing on developing leadership qualities, cooperation and camaraderie etc.

Cadets were selected for the Thal Sainik Camp to be held in at New Delhi, Mr. Paramjit said. The camp acted as a selection process before finalising the team to be sent to New Delhi.

NCC cadets honing skills at camp

Staff Reporter

The surroundings of Reddy College witnessing hectic activity

IN ACTION: NCC cadets doing march past at their camp on the premises of Reddy College in Guntur on Friday.

GUNTUR: The leafy and serene surroundings at the Reddy College have been witnessing hectic activity for about ten days. Tents have perched up on the vast open spaces and groups of boys and girls in their NCC uniforms take orders from their officers and do accordingly in a clock like precision. Their body and minds in unison, they seem not to do a thing wrong. As the curtains on the 10-day NCC camp of the 25th Andhra Battalion rings down in a couple of days, the 700-odd boys and girls have come out in flying colours.

“I have learnt to be more self-disciplined and have shed inhibitions of meeting new people,” said Malathi, a student of Prathiba Degree College at Ongole.

If the daily regimen has taught them core values of discipline, obedience and commitment, living together has taught them the values of team work and honed their leadership skills. The camp concludes on Sunday and the cadets would perform at the NCC Day celebrations to be held on the Police Parade Grounds here on Saturday.

“Co-habitating in difficult conditions will make the boys and girls more self-confident and improve their physical and mental strength,” said Commanding Officer D. Sudhakara Rao.

A typical day in a camp starts early with the cadets doing PT exercises, followed by running and other fitness training. After breakfast, the cadets go thorough the motions of drill, basic training in use of fire arms, obstacle clearing etc.

They also learn compass tracking.

“Such camps aim at moulding the cadets into responsible citizens and instil qualities of selflessness and fairness.

Parents stopping children from attending such camps should realize that the time spent here would teach valuable life skills,” Mr. Rao said.

Financial constraints

But financial constraints seemed to have a telling effect on the camp as the cadets had great difficulty in procuring uniform.

For the second successive year, the NCC department had not dispatched uniform. The supervising officers find it difficult to manage with the limited ration provided to the cadets.
