Air Chief Marshal V.R. Chaudhari, Chief of the Air Staff (CAS) visited the NCC Republic Day (RD) Camp 2024 at Delhi Cantt today. On arrival, the Air Chief was received by the DG NCC, Lt Gen Gurbirpal Singh.
The Chief of Air Staff reviewed the 'Guard of Honour' presented by the cadets from the Army, Navy, and Air Force wings of the NCC. This was followed by a spectacular band display by the cadets of NER (North East Region). The CAS inspected the 'Flag Area', which was painstakingly prepared by cadets from all 17 NCC Directorates, depicting various social awareness themes. The cadets provided a concise description of their respective models.
The CAS also visited Hall of Fame, which is a rich embodiment of NCC's glorious 75 years. Later, the Air Chief Marshal, accompanied by other distinguished guests, witnessed an impressive 'Cultural Programme' performed by the talented cadets at the NCC auditorium. Cadets from different directorates presented their culture through the medium of dance and songs.
Later, while addressing the cadets, the Air Chief Marshal commended the cadets for their immaculate turn out, smart bearing and splendid drill movements. He congratulated all the cadets present on being selected for the prestigious RD Camp.
He emphasised on how our diversity is our strength and how together we can achieve greatness.
He brought out how NCC has contributed significantly in transforming the lives of millions by inculcating the qualities of discipline, leadership, camaraderie, team spirit, adventure and national integration.
Speaking on leadership the CAS mentioned that it was about inspiring others through actions, fostering espirit-de-corps and looking after those placed under you. He also commended the cadets on their spirit of selflessness, amply demonstrated through the years.
He emphasised the importance of 'unity and discipline', the motto of NCC, and how joining the armed forces can give them a great opportunity to inculcate these qualities in life.
