Army as an institute is huge. Every single unit is an organization in itself, working individually
as an entity yet collaborated in all the various efforts. It also ensures a life full of experiences that
not only have the capacity to alter your own life for good, but also consistently affect the life of
many, be it fellow soldiers or the citizens of the world. Preparing you to be innovative and
strategic in the various decisions you take, it ensures productivity and holistic development. It
was this zeal for trying the new that motivated me and resulted in a phenomenal success.
In 2008, while I was ............................... brain storming session with my commanding officer, I
suggested a module that trained the soldiers for advanced courses in the army. Instantly the
commanding officer was agreeable to the idea, welcoming the thought and gave me a go ahead.
Strange as it might seem, the practice was not followed in my unit and such a suggestion was
received with great welcome. My day of reckoning was when .......................... had not been
achieved in the past ......................... unit's history. Such was the excitement and boost in the
confidence that from then on it has become a matter of habit for the unit to perform exceedingly
well in the advanced courses. It gave impetus and a kind of momentum that any one detailed for
the course would voluntarily try and seek the pre course training and do well because he did not
want to be the odd man out when everyone around him was doing well.
Today there is a dedicated column in our annual newsletter that talks about the people who
performed well and I can proudly say that it is never empty. My small endeavor has instilled
immense pride within my unit and a great sense of achievement and thirst for more. I know that I
have helped change the life of many and progressively acted in the manner that is most
conducive to my unit, even to this date.
