The training was definitely thrilling as well as challenging as it brought out the best in me. The course prepared us to handle any adverse situation coming our way. It is the sheer love for the country, which keeps any soldier going. Indeed the unflinching love and support from my parents kept me in high spirits and gave me the strength to complete my training.”
