    @ jenson joseph
    sorry, couldn't reply to u

    @ swapnil & anonymous
    thanks

    @ indu
    keep cool and put out yourself
    let them decide whether u r joining army or not
    dont feel disappointed if rejected
    rejections only mean that u r better for something else
    there is a difference between scientists, businessmen, etc and army officers

  13. Hi this is $@tin, i have also attended a SSB at Varanasi and again gonna attend at Bhopal on 23rd sept 2010.It will never be a negative point for you if you have not taken any coaching. I am damn sure that the way Puneetkumar has described the process, no one can. He has given all the in and outs of the selection procedure and it's applicable to any of the SSB. See, even if you have taken coaching before going to SSB, they'll catch it easily by your action. So don't get scared. You'll find there will be maximum guys who'll be selected, will be without coaching. I myself was conference out and was without any coaching.Best of luck for your exam. And just be confident, and always keep thinking that you can do it.

  17. Hi Puneetkumar, ihad been reading books about the selection processes at SSB, but your experience has really added value to the same. Thanks a ton for sharing such a wonderful experience with everyone which would indeed be very helpful to get acquainted with what exactly goes into a making of an Officer in defence.

  32. Hi sir...
    I'm your junior(2010 pass out)..I know you hardly remember our faces but we will surely remember you through out our life..
    I'll share my small funny experience of mine, it happened when I was in class 6th..I was given a book by some senior to give it to you..I doubled from mess to hostel and suddenly rushed to 3rd barrack..!!! and started asking everyone about you..all in barrack were shocked for my behaviour..then some one told me silently said that "3rd barrack leader stays in 4th barrack and not with juniors in 3rd..!!!"

    even though this incident is very silly, but believe me sir after that incident whenever I saw 3rd barrack leader, I remembered you, your batch, raghavendra sir,rajendra sir,mallikarjun sir,..etc. and that's it..I'll always keep cherishing all the moments with my top senior batch as a smallest junior...:-)

    and I was really touched after reading your article..as some part of my questions clashed with yours!!! and thanks as I've found answers for them after reading this article.. now I'll also leave it to god to decide my life in defence..and about the rest will keep striving for whatever comes on my way...:-)
    with best regards
