“Do you dream big”, Join NDA (National Defense Academy)

“Do you dream big”, Join NDA (National Defense Academy)

NDA (National Defense Academy) is the Answer.    

NDA is one of the most prestigious and premier institute in India for producing one of the most sharp, brave and honorable officers for Indian Army, Indian Navy and Indian Air Force. There is no doubt that the National Defense Academy is one of the top notch academies for military education in the world.

There is pride, respect and honor in serving the nation and that is why the admission in the National Defense Academy is well earned. Many students who aspire to become an officer begin their journey by taking coaching for their entrance exams from 11th standard and also built their physical strength side by side. There is no doubt that the student has to go through a demanding criterion before they get selected in the NDA but the rewards of passing out the National Defense Academy out weights the hard work one has to put in when they finally passes out the National Defense Academy and holds the position in the Indian defense force. It’s incomparable to any other achievement. Respect and Honor are the only words that come to my mind when it comes to such an elite institute.

 How can I join the NDA (National Defense Academy)?

The first stepping stone in getting into the National Defense Academy is that you should be an Indian citizen and have to sit to clear the entrance exam which is been authorized and conducted by the Union Public Service Commission of India. The exams are held twice year. You could take prior coaching to prepare for the entrance examination. There is plethora of private institutes that will sharpen your skill for clearing the entrance examination.

What should be my qualification and age for the entrance in the National Defense Academy?

The qualification criterion is that you should have completed 12th standard or equivalent from a recognized board. And you must have attained the age of 16 ½ years and your above age should not be above 19 ½.

Is NDA for both Males and Females?

NDA is only for Male candidates and they should be unmarried during the time of admission. Whereas female candidates are not eligible for NDA.

I am a female, how can go about to join Indian Army, Indian Navy or Indian Air Force.

If you are a female and aspire to join Indian Army, Indian Navy or Indian Air Force. Then you have to complete your graduation and go through CDS (Combine defense service) format.

(Learn further all about CDS examination and other details.)

Do I have to appear for physical test to join NDA?

Yes, you have to appear for physical test as mentioned in the NDA exam notification in order to join the National Defense Academy. So one should also prepare for the physical test as well.

I have cleared my entrance exam and physical test, is it enough?

When you have satisfied the all of the above criteria than you have to appear for a personal interview round. If you perform well in the personal interview then you will be selected in the Academy.

On the closing note one last suggestion I would like to give is begin your preparation as early as possible & also checkout the official website (http://nda.nic.in/). Jobs without degrees impart their well wishes to all the aspiring students.

8 Personality development Tips.

8 Personality development Tips.

There is this deep desire in all of us to become one of the best versions of ourselves. We all like to be liked by the people around us. We see some people with so charming persona that we instantly get attracted to them and in our mind we want to be like that person, “attractive”. Now the question arises, what some people have and some people don’t and how bizarre it may sound the answer is nobody has anything and nobody lacks anything. The way you express yourself is your personality. Personality is all about expressing yourself through your attitude, feelings, emotions and your response to life situations. However having said that, if you think you need to improve on your personality than you have to work on your expression, you don’t have to add or delete anything in yourself. You are already your best version when you are genuine and authentic. As this post is dealing with the personality development I would like to give you few pointers that would be of assistance in improving your expression and hence your personality. I tried to put in as simple language and words possible for the best understating and clarity, hope the writing is worth the purpose.

8 Personality development Tips.

  • Love and Respect: It’s not about others, it’s about you. Even if someone is disrespectful to you, you don’t have to match up to their standard. Respectfully we can take our stand or step aside. It means that we respect ourselves above anything else. Giving love and respect to others certainly makes ourselves feel good. The universe we live in work as a mirror, what we are or what we give is always reflected back to us. So being loving and respectful is in our best interest.
  • Confidence: There is no person in this world who is all confident in all life situations. Sometime or the other we feel fear facing something but that should not stop us facing things. Being confident is not absence of fear but instead acting in the presence of fear. Once you practice confidence in your life affairs soon you will realize that your resistance to life is soothing out and confidence becomes your second nature.
  • Awareness: Awareness is just the “knowing” about the thoughts, feelings, actions and surroundings. The deeper you grow in your awareness the deeper you will know about yourself. Awareness helps you to meet yourself 100%. Awareness will shed light on your likes & dislikes, your behavior, strengths and weakness. And once you know yourself than you will instantly know about things you would like to improve on. Sometimes a simple change in a thought may change your whole perspective on how you look at things. But that could only be done if you are aware of your thoughts and perspective. To begin with awareness simply watch your thoughts just for 5 minutes a day. That will set you going.

8 Personality development Tips.

  • Be authentic: This life we are living is given to us live to our best authentic self than to become someone else that we are truly not. Nobody likes a fake person and that will also not help you in the long run. So be as authentic as possible. Being authentic does not mean that we don’t learn from others, we learn from others as well because there is a value to others experience of something. But learning is very different from blindly imitating someone else. Being authentic means coming from a real place within. We be should be true to our values and beliefs and so should be our actions.
  • Be yourself: Each individual is unique in himself and that’s the beauty of being an individual. Being ourselves is the most powerful act in this world as it gives you the confidence to act from a place of character. When we are truly being ourselves we are inspired by our instincts and we do not give in to outside pressure. There is a real sense of inner freedom and joy in being ourselves. You must have noticed that people who are carefree are happier as they don’t give much importance to what other people say or think about them.
  • Accept yourself: It’s not about how many people likes you but on the contrary it’s about whether you like yourself or not. The more you accept yourself the more people will accept you and that’s the paradox you have to align your life with. If deep down inside you don’t like yourself than you can’t expect that someone else will like you. Accept yourself, your life and your circumstances the way it is. Because when you accept things the way it is then you are free from its influence.

8 Personality development Tips.

  • Live with spirit: There is only one life we are given to live and how boring it would be to just endure through the life. It is true that life comes with responsibilities with regard to relationships, work, friends and family. But a weary and tired spirit will even make this journey harder. The spark of spirit is all that required to bring curiosity to a boring job, kindle a tough day, love people who are difficult to deal with, turn diner into feast, friends into families and events into joyful memories. It is the spark of the spirit that shines within us that makes us so special as human beings on our journey in this lifetime.
  • Matter of Attitude: One thing that is surely in our control is our attitude. Our body, finances, circumstances and even our DNA does not control our attitude. We solely control it and what our attitude is defines how we deal with our life. A negative attitude will not give you a positive life. In any given time and life circumstance we can take up an attitude that projects positivity and solutions over to surrender and submissiveness. Nothing could beat a positive attitude, even overwhelming circumstances have to take bow if you live with a positive attitude.

Even with our goodness and flaws we are all special human beings and only in this light we should all see each other, nothing more & nothing less. Use this post as a guiding signpost in your journey to becoming “Your true self”.

Top 10 Professional Courses after 12th standard.

School life is something you will cherish all your life, studies, days spent with friends and hangouts. Just after finishing 12th standard you now have a new responsibility to choose a life path or a profession for which you have to wisely choose a stream. To choose a stream you become confused and as to what would be the best choice possible for you.

How to choose a stream after 12th standard.

Our Indian education system demands that the students will have to learn a set of subject till they complete the class 10th board exams.

After passing out 10th board exams the student have to choose either science or commerce as the stream of subjects. But due to consideration of also marks obtained in the 10th standard the sometimes students are forced to choose the commerce stream instead of science due to lesser marks. But it is really advisable to the parents and the students to opt for stream that really resonates with you rather than falling prey to peer pressure, mainstream courses and competition. As each person has his or her desire to follow a particular path. We would suggest that the best decision would be that of a realistic approach with parent and the student’s consensus involved. Parents should not pressurize students for anything that a student is unwilling to follow.
