The Passing Out from NPA


As the passing out day was coming close a sense of happiness among all batchmates was growing. Don't know it was good or bad but due to very hectic schedule and almost nonstop parade practices we were not getting time to actually think much about it. It was while doing peeling off of last parade practice a sense of nostalgia creeped in and suddenly i realized that only a single day is there tp spent time with fellowmates.

Anyway as expected a long briefing session followed the parade practice and after that i got busy with no-dues, packing etc. And in the evening i along with my buddy Ankur Jain went to railway station to recieve my and his parents and my sister where as if it seems even Indian railway wants to test our patience .We reached the station at 8:30 and the train which was till 8:30 was on time started getting late and eventually came about 3 hours late. We reached to the academy late about 12pm very tired and exhausted. I set the alarm at 7:40 next day and slept.

Suddenly i woke up and checked the time in my mobile and as expected it was 4:41(last one week my sleep used to break exactly at 4:41 due to reasons unknown). I slept again , went into deep sleep and woke up at 7:00am. After completing all formalities and drinking lots of water i reached quarter gaurd at 9:00am. Here a sense of excitement and happiness was there among all officer trainees. We all checked each other's turnout and cheered bharat mata ki jai three times and proceeded towards back of quila. There we took water again and wished each other best of luck. Band played 'Om jai jagdish hare' and after that we marched inside the parade ground full of joy and enthusiasm.

In the parade ground after the arrival of chief guest Sushil Kumar Shinde, The home minister of India, he did nirishan"inspection" of parade and after that we took oath which was administered by the Director of the academy.During all this i was trying to locate my parents in the crowd of many people and was praying that they sit at such place from where my sister can click my pics easily.After That marching off took place which was followed of Director's long speech. It seemed that this speech will never end, and since its very tough to stand in the parade for long we were getting lil tired. But luckily weather god was kind enough on us, and the weather was cloudy with continuous but small spells of light showers. So we got over with this 30minutes of speech comfortably.

After that the prize winner ceremony took place and then speech by chief guest . It was at this time when the light showers converted into heavy showers . Our director told to chief guest that officer trainees are comfortable in the rain and will stand there till the speech get over. We stood there in the rain and most importantly enjoying it. Once the chief guests speech got over, the ceremony of peeling off started , The ceremony which is last but certainly not the least , infact most important one. And with sense of pride, joy , enthusiasm and nostalgia we all crossed the gate of parade ground.

As soon as we all came out , loud and happy noises started, we congratulated each other ,in the rain we also splashed water on each other and the voices of "khoon pasine" edi panja" was all over there. from the parade ground to the auditorium we all enjoyed and celebrated like anything. But one thing was there in my mind and i think in everyone else's mind that now we all have to leave the academy where we enjoyed each other's company and had lots of fun. I wanted that time may stop so that we may remain between auditorium and parade ground forever enjoying . But certainly this is not possible , and we reached to the auditorium where a formal group photograph was taken.

After that high tea and then lunch and then other remaining formal things took place. Everyone got busy with his/her family and rest of the day went off in clicking pics and clearing last time dues. Right now at 10:45pm of 2nd nov 2012 i am writing this stuff sitting in one of the guest house of academy 'S.M. Diaz' and i still want the time to stop so that i can spend some more time here. But tomorrow morning have to leave the academy. Only consoling thing is that i will soon meet my fellowmates again but still few other are gone for indefinite time.

Surely and certainly i will miss all of my batch-mates and the time spent in the academy. Love u all .......

कर्ण और कृष्ण का संवाद - रामधारी सिंह 'दिनकर'

Following is excerpt from poem Rashmirathi written by Ram dhari singh dinkar. Karna reply to Krishna when he told story of his birth and ask him to join pandava side. सुन-सुन कर कर्ण अधीर हुआ, क्षण एक तनिक गंभीर हुआ,  फिर कहा "बड़ी यह माया है, जो कुछ आपने बताया है  दिनमणि से सुनकर वही कथा मैं भोग चुका हूँ ग्लानि व्यथा  मैं ध्यान जन्म का धरता हूँ, उन्मन यह सोचा करता हूँ,  कैसी होगी वह माँ कराल, निज तन से जो शिशु को निकाल  धाराओं में धर आती है, अथवा जीवित दफनाती है?  सेवती मास दस तक जिसको, पालती उदर में रख जिसको,  जीवन का अंश खिलाती है, अन्तर का रुधिर पिलाती है  आती फिर उसको फ़ेंक कहीं, नागिन होगी वह नारि नहीं  हे कृष्ण आप चुप ही रहिये, इस पर न अधिक कुछ भी कहिये  सुनना न चाहते तनिक श्रवण, जिस माँ ने मेरा किया जनन  वह नहीं नारि कुल्पाली थी, सर्पिणी परम विकराली थी  पत्थर समान उसका हिय था, सुत से समाज बढ़ कर प्रिय था  गोदी में आग लगा कर के, मेरा कुल-वंश छिपा कर के  दुश्मन का उसने काम किया, माताओं को बदनाम किया  माँ का पय भी न पीया मैंने, उलटे अभिशाप लिया मैंने  वह तो यशस्विनी बनी रह

Scheme for creation of National Optical Fiber Network for Broadband connectivity of Panchayats

The Union Cabinet recently approved a scheme for creation of a National Optical Fiber Network (NOFN) for providing Broadband connectivity to Panchayats. The objective of the scheme is to extend the existing optical fiber network which is available up to district / block HQ’s level to the Gram Panchayat level initially by utilizing the Universal Service Obligation Fund (USOF). The cost of this initial phase of the NOFN scheme is likely to be about Rs.20,000 crore. A similar amount of investment is likely to be made by the private sector complementing the NOFN infrastructure while providing services to individual users. In economic terms, the benefits from the scheme are expected through additional employment, e-education, e-health, e-agriculture etc. and reduction in migration of rural population to urban areas. As per a study conducted by the World Bank, with every 10% increase in broadband penetration, there is an increase in GDP growth by 1.4%. NOFN will also facilitate implemen

किसको नमन करूँ मैं भारत? - Kisko Naman Karu Mein Bharat?

A poem dedicated to the nation written by Ramdhari Singh "dinkar"... तुझको या तेरे नदीश, गिरि, वन को नमन करूँ, मैं ? मेरे प्यारे देश ! देह या मन को नमन करूँ मैं ? किसको नमन करूँ मैं भारत ? किसको नमन करूँ मैं ? भू के मानचित्र पर अंकित त्रिभुज, यही क्या तू है ? नर के नभश्चरण की दृढ़ कल्पना नहीं क्या तू है ? भेदों का ज्ञाता, निगूढ़ताओं का चिर ज्ञानी है मेरे प्यारे देश ! नहीं तू पत्थर है, पानी है जड़ताओं में छिपे किसी चेतन को नमन करूँ मैं ? भारत नहीं स्थान का वाचक, गुण विशेष नर का है एक देश का नहीं, शील यह भूमंडल भर का है जहाँ कहीं एकता अखंडित, जहाँ प्रेम का स्वर है देश-देश में वहाँ खड़ा भारत जीवित भास्कर है निखिल विश्व को जन्मभूमि-वंदन को नमन करूँ मैं ! खंडित है यह मही शैल से, सरिता से सागर से पर, जब भी दो हाथ निकल मिलते आ द्वीपांतर से तब खाई को पाट शून्य में महामोद मचता है दो द्वीपों के बीच सेतु यह भारत ही रचता है मंगलमय यह महासेतु-बंधन को नमन करूँ मैं ! दो हृदय के तार जहाँ भी जो जन जोड़ रहे हैं मित्र-भाव की ओर विश्व की

Analysis of Civil Services Prelims paper ( CSAT ) 2011

Anyone who is following the recent trends of civil services prelims papers , can easily predict the unpredictable nature of the paper . Also since this year CSAT has been introduced for the first time every one was curious to see the prelims paper of this year . Atlast today on 12th june suspense ended and what we found was more unpredictable than predictable .I will do paper wise analysis Paper 1 : The topics which came in paper was very much on predictable line . It was very specifically written in UPSC syllabus "General issues on Environmental ecology, Bio-diversity and Climate Change - that do not require subject specialization" , though question have always been asked from these topics but since UPSC mentioned it as separate topic this year , few questions were expected form this topic . Similarly few questions were expected from the Economics , Polity , International affairs , general science and History as well . But then , with UPSC one can never expect que

Some got artistic talent , some brilliance of mind , some management skills and so on every one was getting gifts of his choice . Unusually the line was long today and when the turn of last Kid came , the quota of natural gifts had already exhausted . Kid : My lord please give me gift of your choice.

So whenever at the end of day any gift remains with me , I will give it to you. Kid : what if such day never come God : then you may have spend whole life without any natural talent . That kid devoid of any
