Documentary on my Alma Mater

Sainik School Amaravathi Nagar, Tamil Nadu was started on 16 Jul 1962. Nestled in a grand spread of 240 acres (0.97 km2) amidst the Indira Gandhi Wildlife Sanctuary, in the backdrop of the Amaravathi Dam the school is an ideal locale for the mental and physical development of youth with a view to prepare them for NDA or other walks of life.

I spent a significant part of my life there, from Jul 1995 to Apr 2002. I still keep in touch with many of my friends including seniors and juniors. The cadets and the alumni are called ‘Amaravians’

This video sums up life at my school.

Proud to be an Amaravian 🙂

Chetwode Motto

“The safety, honour and welfare of your country come first, always and every time.

The honour, welfare and comfort of the men you command come next.

Your own ease, comfort and safety come last, always and every time.”

~Field Marshal Sir Philip Chetwode
(Inauguration of the IMA on 10 December 1932)

This credo is also emblazoned on the Administrative block of my alma mater, Sainik School Amaravathi Nagar

A Gentleman

An honest man, a man with a sense of duties and obligation of his position, whatever it may be, a man who tells the truth, a man who gives to others their due, a man who has principles and stands by them, a man considerate to the weak, a man who is not too elated by good fortune and not too depressed by bad, a man who is loyal, a man who can be trusted.
(The credo inscribed in the academic block’s lobby of my alma mater – Sainik School, Amaravathi Nagar)
