Aadarsh kumar Moudgil 32 SSB kapurthala
Hello Friends, This is Ex. SUO & Er. Aadarsh Kumar Moudgil, AIR 24 NCC SPL Entry. Before I start, I would like to say only one thing “Painda Apne Mukkadran naal Bhidna, Saukhiyan ni Pauniyan Bullandiyaan” My journey to join Indian armed forces started back in 1999 when I was 5yrs old only. It was the time of Kargil war. Capt. Vikram Batra PVC and Capt. Manoj pandey PVC eventually become my inspiration & and a zeal to join Indian armed forces developed inside my heart. My father who was a Truck Driver by Profession also wanted to see me there. But on 10 oct 2000 my father expired and being the youngest of all the three kids I was broken from inside. But our mother who was in her early thirties, brought up all of us as best as a father can. Our grandparents also took care of us. And it is their blessings that Today I am here and sharing my success story with you.
Back to my life, I was good at studies as my teachers say and scored first position always. I completed my matriculation from a near by Govt. sen. Sec. School Toba with 80.14% marks, scoring first position in Block. Then I cleared PAT examination scoring 10 position in my category and joined Govt. Poly. Sundernagar H.P. in Mech. Engg. Stream. Apart from the difficulties faced in studies and locality issues I eventually become favourite to my Professors here. I also joined NCC and Red Ribbon Club in college and a active member of college Discipline Committee.
Soon I was promoted to the rank of Senior Under Officer of the collage NCC unit and earned the Best Cadet Award in 2011. I also took part in many extra curricular activities and even won a state level quiz competition in spite of the fact that my team members were not able to reach the quiz venue during State Tech fest 2010. I was also serving as the head of students discipline committee and also the commander of Guard Of Honor to the CM in the same event. I soon completed my diploma in 2012 and got a joining latter from a Pvt. Firm. But I always dreamed about to join indian army as an commissioned officer. But it always requires graduation, And because of our family’s poor financial condition I left the college and joined a company. But I never left my dream, because it was the only reason of my life.
I joined AMIE Kolkata and started corresponding studies. Soon I joined another firm as Jr. Production Engineer only after having a exp. of less than 6 months. I worked hard there I generally go the office 6 o clock in the morning and returned to my home after 10PM after traveling nearly 80km daily. Then in aug 2013 my brother went to Dubai and asked my mom to let me continue my studies. And hence I joined a Pvt. Engg. College in distt. Mandi by lateral entry.
My efforts were appreciated my many also had many bad experiences too, which are the part of our life. But I want to share an incident here also. In 4 sem, I was wrongly accused of complaining my professors to the management about the poor studies and as a result many professors cut down my assessment and I was only able to score 68%in that sem. I talked my mom and big brother about it. I wanted to complain about it but thinking about other fellow students they asked me to keep calm. My mom said my 68%of my handwork are equal to 88% to her, what else I need in life. So i didn’t made a complaint about it. As I always forgive my enemies but never forget their name. I punched the same line to the professor and brought this issue in the notice of our HOD, who was a very gentle and nice person. They assured me to look into the matter and promised that it will not be repeated to any student.
Soon I forgave all and have good relation with the same professors as they realized it was only a misconception. Again, I won many prizes and recommendations from the staff here. In april 2016 i attended my first ssb for TGC course at Bhopal but got conf out. As u all are very much aware of ssb I will not talk about the procedure. On the eve I reached home I left for bilaspur H.P. to attend state police rally to just secure my future. But due to the continuous traveling and bad health I got ground out. I get back to home rest for one day and then left for noida to attend Indian Coast Guards yantrik exam, which I already had cleared back in 2012, but not attended the medicals. I cleared the written and ground on the same day. But got medical issues.I was asked to report RR Delhi. The day I reached their was sat and because of OT it was not the day for my medicals. Then I talked with the president sir of the medical board and they asked the NA to carry out my medicals by the day as on the Tuesday I was having my final examination of 8 sem. But due to non availability of doctor and my medical was not done. So I get back the the college and attended my exams. And hence not able to join coast guard. But I had next two SSB in the month of july for Afcat and ncc spl entry. I was confident but got screened out in both. I was screwed completely in these 3-4 months. But never the less I didn’t loose the hope and cleared CDS.
While I was going to attend ssb for cds at Allahabad on 6nov 2016 in the night. My wallet was stolen at Delhi relway station and I was completely out of money and all id cards along with atm were lost, even my cell was not working. I immediately lodged an fir and called my Big B and explained all the situation. They asked me to return but the soldiers never quit. So I convinced him to let me go. I boarded the train on fir pass and met with a gentleman S.I. Dheeraj Kumar who was also an defence aspirant working in CISF. We had a lot of discussion about each other and he asked me to look for other job options also.he even helped me financially even after a strong refusal. And thanks to him we are still frnds.
I reached the allahabad and attended ssb. And thanks to the staff of 18 Board who allowed me attend ssb without admit card. I got screened in. At the same night demonetization was imposed and I was not able to get any help from my family. during individual obstacle I fell down from commando walk ladder but still managed to clear 12-13 obstacles. On conf day I was not able to make in the recommendation list. So i came back and joined a firm as asst. Sales manager. But as soldiers never quit nor die. I again went for ssb at kapurthala for ncc entry and got screen out from the same board twice. It was the shock. A big disappointment this time. I was broken completely.
I cried, yes I cried again and again. I cried that much only after the death of my grandparents. I have lost all my confidence for once. So I came back and get involved in my job and MBA. U can say due to that disappointment or due to career pressure, continuous work and traveling of 100 km daily to my ofc at Baddi I have lost myself. I missed 3-4 ssb opportunities in 2017. Then in march 2018. I moved to jaipur. One thing that I want to tell all of you any of you might have faced the same that because of continuous failure I was not able to sleep in nights. I always see uniform in my dreams asking dont you have that potential in you. I was having my next two ssb in april and may back to back for NCC and ssc tech resp. Also the exams of MBA last sem were there in june. I was not able to get that much leave. So on discussion with my mom and brother I resigned.
I reached home on 22 april eve after attending an interview at delhi where I was selected and they asked me to join after exams. On 23 night I left for kapurthala with zero percent believe that I can survive screening here. But i got screened in and then had my pysch and gto’s. I represented my self as simply as i am. President sir of 32ssb board took my interview. And it went well. Other tests were average and not as upto my mark this time. So I was not much confident about recommendations. I have to wait for nearly 15min prior to conf. I never heard about that much time taken for an candidate prior to calling him for conf. So I braced myself as my exp. Said beta Moudgil ye Tera time h. Border line pe h tu. life ne tujhe hjaar baar dhokka dia h,iss bar life ko thokk.. Jo hoga dekha jayega.
I remembered my father, and my family. Asked the god for help and moved to conf hall. My conf goes for around 15-18min. With many rapid fires. At the and they asked me for suggestions and about stay. And told me to wait for results. I was sitting in karriappa hall there. And enjoying the last moments at ssb. Becasuse i was thinking that shayd muje ye din kbhi dobara na mile. Soon our technical officer and psych sir, a let. Col. Of para come in all his uniform and I got fascinated with his charm. He called two of my buddies and congrats them for there success. Then he said that’s it?? Sach bollu to I thought I was KILLED. My name was not there, no more recommendations. It means mane conf me kya khud kabada kar daala. Pta nh kitne hzar thoughts mere mind me aaye un 5sec me. Then the said I have one more name.
I was broken this time after continuous failures and set backs. Officer called for guesses and I leaned on table.As i got the same chest no and colur that i had at Allahabad, and the devil’s No. the no 13.So i have no hopes left. Then he called chest no 13 and my buddies says oye uth ja.. Tuje sir bula rhe. And meri ankho me ansu or khushi ek sath thi, wo kya feeling thi bta nh skta. He called for my name and roll no. I told my name and as i forgot my roll no so I just told the last three digit. Sir smiled and called us to take our luggage. Friends congrats us and we move ahead. But in my life how I can get easy things.. Never and ever.
I got TR due to umbilical hernia. But when I went in civil to operate it. They refused to operate as They were not able to diagnose it. I even went to tanda medical collage Kangara HP. But the results were same. I was in warrior. I went to MH chandimandir for amb but tghe docs were not arrived. Meanwhile I also missed my ssc tech ssb at Bangalore. Then by next week i got a call and I moved to Chandigarh. They told me to come again on next day for USG. The next day I got USG and got medically fit. It was mid of may. I want to share my success with my family and friends but kehte hainna ki dudh ka jala chach bhi foonk foonk kar peeta h. So I waited for the merit list. And on 31july 2018 I got myself merit in for Prestigious OTA with AIR 24…Today I also cleared my MBA studies. So that all about me.some of u might find it boring and lengthy to read. Sorry for that but it was the journey of a small village boy, from poor background who once dreamed big and achieved it at last. Buddies always remember easy success is not the success.
Fight and fight until you or your enemy dies. Work hard, dream big, let the dogs bark but stay focused and one day u will surely get whatever u want. I dedicate my success to my father Late Sh. Pawan Kumar, my mother, my grandparents, my brother and all those who always stayed together with me in my all tough decisions. Jo banana nee kuch c, aajtak thuhadde Putt nu gawar aakhde, hunn ohhi Daddy ji thuhadde putt nu STAR aakhde .
Love u Papa ji. Jai hind, Jai bharat.
