Mumbai: After a gap of 18 years,
Maharashtra will be hosting an all India National Cadet Corps
(NCC) camp with around 650 cadets from across the country
participating in the event, a defence official said today.
"This is the most prestigious camp with different
themes for the cadets to exhibit their intrinsic talents and
qualities," Colonel M K Joshi said.
The 12-day `National Integration and Solidarity` camp,
began last week and is hosted by N G Acharya & D K Marathe
College of Arts, Science and Commerce.
"The themes of the camp include motivation, culture,
and social service, tourism and also highlight a bright career
for them ahead in Army. All these were meant to inculcate
values," Joshi, who is the Group Commander, said.
The cadets are participating in various competitions
to promote national integrity, he said, adding demonstrations
were held by experts from National Disaster Response Force and
Mumbai fire Brigade.
"We also engaged Western India Automobile Association
to talk about drunken driving.
"The camp being held in Mumbai, we want to introduce
the students also to some Bollywood culture. We will take them
to R K Studio in Chembur and try to get some actors to
interact with them," Joshi said.
