We are delighted to announce with great pride and happiness that LPU student and NSS volunteer Saumya Singh, as well as LPU NCC Cadet Deeksha Gaur, participated in the Republic Day Parade 2022, out of hundreds of other cadets. In the current academic year, Deeksha Gaur is pursuing a BBA-MBA (integrated) degree, while Saumya Singh is pursuing a B. Tech degree in Mechanical Engineering.
The National Cadet Corps, which was constituted under the Indian Defence Act of 1917, was officially established on July 15, 1948. The National Cadet Corps (NCC), a branch of the Indian Armed Forces centred on the Tri-Services Organization, is dedicated to instilling a sense of patriotism in young people. The National Service Scheme (NSS), which was established during Gandhiji’s centennial year in 1969, is dedicated to the development of students’ personalities through community service opportunities.
Students from LPU were chosen based on their overall performance in the parade, their participation in cultural activities, their ability to participate in debates on various social issues, and their ability to represent the culture of their home state or country. In addition, the President of India presented them with prestigious testimonials in recognition of their significant national contribution and participation. All of these LPU students, who have been selected as some of the country’s top National Cadet Corps (NCC) cadets and National Service Scheme (NSS) volunteers, saluted with dignity the unfurled Tricolour, President Ram Nath Kovind, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and other dignitaries in the Republic Day Parade 2022.
Omkar Nath, a student at LPU who is pursuing an MBA, also participated in the Republic Day Parade. Among those who took part in the parade were Ashish Kumar, who is currently studying for his B. Tech in Computer Science and Engineering. Ashish Kumar was named one of the top three “All India Best NCC Cadets” by the National Cadet Corps. The 73rd Republic Day Parade saw him receive a “Bronze Medal” from the NCC, for which he is currently an Under Officer (UO) in the Army Wing. In his address to the cadets, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged them to recall the lessons that they had learned while in the NCC and NSs and to apply them in real-life situations. His remarks also focused on the efforts made by cadets from the NCC and the NSS in the fight against the coronavirus.
