ABOUT

The history of any nation is made not of atomic weapons it posses, the warships it sails, or the jet planes or missiles it flies but by the men who man these machines. This human material consists of boys and girls of a past age who have grown into men and women of the present.

The proper training of youth is therefore, of present importance for the future. Youth is the cream of the society and thus the real wealth of the nation. It is on their quality that the greatness of a nation depends, because the youth of today are to be the leaders of tomorrow. Therefore a well planned youth movement is of paramount importance and a matter of foremost concern to the leaders and educationists of our country. Also, since the advent of independence there was great public demand that military training should be given to the youth of the country. Both for national interest and for moulding the character of our young men and women on right lines, such as career in Armed forces, well organized, trained & motivated youths, provides leadership in all walks of life and also to serve for the nation.
