  • NCC. Where to prepare from about NCC?

    for that purpose only i have made this separate thread bro , to discuss about NCC or NSS first we can put our credentials with those activities exp - how many and which camps you have attended ?

    2- which level certificate do u hav B or C and grade as well

    3- weapon training - INSAS ,303 , LMG assembling

    4- motto , philosphy of ncc

    5- what u have learned from it , how it promotes leadership skills

    now please start a healthy discussion so that we can sum up this aspect of our DAF in max 2-3 hour :)
  • I don't remember much. I have B and C. Isn't there some material online regarding all this. Info about the three companies in NCC as well.
  • Answers to these:
    What is your dream lens?
    What is your dream camera?

    I can say that "I haven't delved to deep into all this yet. I am just starting to explore my camera. Though I would expect some xyz features in my future lens and camera but I would not be able to pinpoint any one device."

    Is it right to say this?

  • How is trekking diff from hiking and mountaineering?
    Responsible trekking- taking your trash down!
    Too much tourists in pristine places- ecological effects!
    Treks outside Himalayas?

  • Yes, exactly. Professional thoda na hain hum.
  • I did not go for NCC C certificate after B. ( Was not interested)
    What can be answer for this?
    And answer for - why did not you join armed forces? ( Again was not interested)
    Waiting for the day...
  • NSS se related wht cn they ask? any1 remember wht wr the curricula of b and c certis of nss?
    forgot outrightly
    it will matter in the end...definitely..
  • 1-Upto what height you have gone during trekking
    2- longest duration - eg 2 days , 3 days trekk
    3- medical knowledge required if something bad happens
  • edited November 2017
    How will you continue hikking and trekking as a hobby when you will be in job ? There will be time constraints, tiredness from trekking which will affect job ?
  • NSS people also gather here.
    Apart from theoretical/history aspects to be done from NSS website+own college's NSS unit what else can be asked?
    Can we be asked why not social service as full time occupation?
    Is nss popular enough?what can be done to increase its reach and impact..?


    the horror of no match found
    motivation, where art thou?
