My name is Harshit Jain, I am from Firozabad, U.P. I am currently working as a QA Tester for an IT company in Bangalore. I got recommended for IMA-149(DE) course from 21- SSB Bhopal through CDS-2 2019 on 8th March 2020. This was my 4th conference and in total, I have appeared for 8 SSBs in last one year. My journey with Col. Nehru sir and NFA started in December 2019, when I got conference out from 2- AFSB, Mysore. Although I was preparing hard but was not able to figure out what was going wrong. I was continuously going through this conference out and screen out process, my main focus was on SSB testing only and I was continuously preparing on making story (PPDT &TAT), WAT & SRT better. So here the guidance of Nehru sir, came into play. He took my interview, psych test and pointed out on my weak areas, where I needed to work on. He told me to make a daily routine and get it checked by him.
Been mentored by Col Nehru since preparation. His guidance has got me through selection process, training & even service. He has a holistic approach which isn't just focused on SSB but growing through life. No frills like the name. There is no spoon-feeding, you have to learn to put in the work, no short cuts. That's why you're set to grow, whether you choose SSB or another career option.
My childhood dream to join Indian army as an officer brought me to the blogs of Col. Nehru's No Frills Academy. Though, my career took a different direction, I was still keen in knowing the army life, what situations they face in the field, read the stories of wars, and experiences of army personals from various insurgencies. I thoroughly followed Col. Nehru's blog on Instagram, specially his experience and stories from the NDA. Sometime ago, I faced a difficult situation in life and needed an expert opinion to help me handle the situation. I took the chance to approach Col. Nehru sir (considering that he himself handled a lot of difficult situation in army life and may provide me something valuable from his own personal experience), to my surprise, he gladly accepted my request to listen and help me. He helped me understand and evaluate the problem from a deeper perspective and segregate it in smaller challenges. He helped me to handle the situation in a way that was comfortable for me. I would say that he was more or less like a guardian to me. I would recommend Col. Nehru's NFA, not only to those who are preparing to join India army but also if someone would like to have an expert opinion on a specific situation. I would also mention that the staff at NFA is supportive.
I have had a great time being part of NFA. My interactions with Nehru Sir were very fruitful and I gained a deep insight about myself which has greatly helped me in enhancing my strengths and working on my weaknesses. Even the group members have been very supportive and helpful. Thanks a lot, I definitely recommend NFA for not only Defence aspirants but for everyone who wants to improve their overall personality.
Col. Nehru sir guided me and pointed out the areas where I lacked and how to work on it. He also helped me stay motivated and consistent, since appearing for defence examinations and SSBs is a long process. The NFA group activities made me familiar with the group tasks due to which I was able to do well in them. All in all Nehru sir played a huge role in my preparation for the SSB.
My name is Aman Kumar Pradhan, I am from Odisha and i am born and brought up in New Delhi, I had done my graduation in Economics honours from University of Delhi( shyam lal college) and i am currently pursuing my post graduation in Economics from Indraprastha University, New Delhi. I got recommended for CDS entry(IMA - 155), this was my 6th attempt. I was part of NFA 18 and 23. The practical guide to become an officer is the simply put the most logical and helpful book for all the defence aspirants and all thanks to sir to bring that out in that with so much clarity in the book as to what is to be done to become a successful human being not just an "officer". I had only two interactions with sir the first one was the mandatory interview which everyone goes through and the second one was after one of my attempts as to clarify what did not work out in that attempt, both the interactions were helpful and helped me in shaping myself for my further attempts.
My name is Varun Gaur. I am from Bharatpur, Rajasthan. I have completed my Graduation from National Institute of Technology, Patna in the department of Civil Engineering in 2021. I was working as a Business Analyst in an IT firm and now I have joined OTA hence resigned from the firm. I got recommended for SSC(T)-60 from 14 SSB Allahabad. I got recommended in my 8th attempt and that was my 4th conference. Fortunately I got AIR 2. Recently I got recommended consecutively in my 9th attempt for TGC-137 (IMA) from SSB Jalandhar and will join IMA from 1 July 2023. I was part of NFA 30 and 31 both. Personal interaction with Nehru Sir has helped me a lot in understanding a clear cut perspective to approach SSB. My doubts cleared by him gave me a considerable amount of confidence and regular talks with him improved me gradually.
