“Some goals are so worthy, it’s glorious even to fail.”
The above statement was given by Captain Manoj Kumar Pandey, an officer of the Indian Army who was posthumously awarded the Param Vir Chakra, India’s highest military honor, for his bravery during the Kargil War of 1999. This statement represents the essence of pursuing noble goals despite the risk of failure. It says that the pursuit of these goals brings honor and glory, irrespective of success or failure. It is of significant importance for NDA aspirants to not lose hope and never give up until they accomplish their goals. Today’s NDA success story is quite relatable to this statement and will inspire NDA aspirants to cheer up their dreams.
NDA Success Story of AIR 7 (Girls) Khushi Kumari
In the history of the National Defence Academy, the success stories of extraordinary valor and dedication often find their place. Among these remarkable stories stands the inspiring journey of Khushi Kumari, a girl from Chhapra, Bihar who cracked the NDA SSB interview twice in a row. Khushi’s resolve and commitment were honed under the guidance of professional mentors at Centurion Defence Academy. Her relentless efforts and the invaluable mentorship she received played a pivotal role in shaping her success story. Let us learn more about her success story.
Khushi Kumari’s remarkable achievement in the NDA exam placed her in the prestigious AIR 7 (Girls) position in the NDA 151st course final merit list. What sets Khushi apart is not just her accomplishment in the recent exam; she had previously secured the AIR-387 in the NDA 150th course merit list. Though she missed the opportunity to join the National Defence Academy due to her lower score in the final merit list, her determination and perseverance paved the way for her consecutive recommendations.
Khushi’s Passion for Joining the Indian Army
Khushi’s journey toward the National Defence Academy began during her 11th standard when she learned about the Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of female aspirants to join the NDA. This crucial moment sparked a deep fascination within Khushi and ignited her aspiration to serve in the Indian Army through the NDA. During an interview, Khushi revealed that a total of eight of her family members, both paternal and maternal relatives, have either served or are currently serving in the Indian Armed Forces. As the ninth individual from her family to join the Armed Forces through the NDA, Khushi proudly stands as a groundbreaker, set to become the first commissioned officer in her family’s lineage. Her upcoming role as a commissioned officer in the Indian Army marks a proud and defining moment for her family’s legacy in service to the nation.
Recommendation for NDA 150th course from 18 SSB Allahabad
Khushi’s journey towards securing a spot in the 150th course at NDA began with her recommendation from the 18 SSB Allahabad during her initial attempt. Although she achieved an All India Rank of 387, with only 19 available seats for girls in that course at NDA, Khushi unfortunately couldn’t secure her place. However, she persisted and made another attempt. This time, she received a recommendation from 21 SSB Bhopal. Notably, Sir Shishir Dixit, the Founder-Director and Chief SSB Mentor (Psychology) at Centurion Defence Academy, renowned for his adept profile mapping abilities, had foreseen Khushi’s potential during her mock interview and had already predicted her recommendation. His guidance, based on personalized feedback after analyzing Khushi’s PIQ, greatly assisted her in preparing effectively for her SSB interview.
Recommended for NDA 151st Course from 21 SSB Bhopal
Khushi’s resilience and dedication in the face of initial disappointment led her to a second recommendation, this time from 21 SSB Bhopal. With the guidance and right mentorship of Sir Shishir Dixit, who is known for his proficiency in profile mapping and providing individual guidance and personalized guidance, Khushi diligently worked on improving herself. Shishir Sir’s perceptive analysis of her mock interview and subsequent feedback on her PIQ enabled Khushi to refine her approach and significantly enhance her performance. The outcome was securing another recommendation she needed for the 150th course at the prestigious NDA.
Role of Shishir Sir and Centurion Defence Academy in Khushi’s Success Story
Khushi gives a significant portion of credit for her success to Shishir Sir, who played a pivotal role in shaping her preparation for the NDA. His exceptional profile mapping abilities, detailed feedback from the mock interview, thorough analysis of her PIQ, and consistent guidance were instrumental in preparing Khushi for the SSB interview, which resulted in two consecutive recommendations. Additionally, the environment at Centurion Defence Academy played a crucial role in her journey. The academy not only provided her with exposure to Centurion’s GTO grounds, where she honed her skills for group activities, but also facilitated a holistic approach to her preparation. This comprehensive support system at Centurion greatly contributed to Khushi’s readiness and success in her pursuit of joining the National Defence Academy.
Khushi’s Message for NDA Aspirants
During one of her interactions, Khushi mentioned that when Shishir Sir remarked on her as a potential candidate and assured her of receiving a recommendation, it filled her with immense confidence and enhanced her abilities for the SSB interview. She wishes that every NDA aspirant preparing for the exam receives such constructive feedback from Shishir Sir. Khushi firmly believes that those encouraging words greatly empowered her. She also advises NDA aspirants not to lose hope but to give their best efforts to achieve their dreams. We believe that Khushi’s success story will serve as a guiding light for those young students who aspire to join the National Defence Academy and prioritize serving the nation.
