Though its my childhood ambition I don’t think SSB conducted are fair enough especially for army.
There is clear preference for children of army officials & student from army school & military school even if they perform poor on day 1.
That is the truth & now army is no more corruption free.
There is lot of corruption in army now.
Just go for tes ssb & find that even you are the best among the group than also if you are common guy taking up SSB you would be screened out.

Hello Sir,

This is Jagjitsingh saluja, Sir this is very good and deep Quetion that you asked today and today you can find the answere by seeing the voting rate’s.
sir most of the Youngster vote top Childhood Dream and the Third Larger is Motivated By T.V and with the Help of Internet.
Sir to be very Honnest with you Parents are not a tall supporting to there Childreen towards defence forces and it is right and it can see most in a civilian familiyes.
as i born in a civilian family so i knew it that it is very difficult for us to make our carrer in a defence forces because mostly the civilian family’s are into a bussiness and due to lack informations about arm forces.
Sir the Problems is here that civilian family’s ll not having idea or any informations about arm forces and according to them defence is a very big platform and a big dream and they think that to become a army office or any officer in defence forces people should be perfect in g-k or in study.
but sir as i am and many students those are an average students for them thinking about a defence job it is a joke because most of the parents think the boy should be perfect in study and g-k not an avarage Student,
but as far as i came to knew that in defence force we need only 15 officer qualities and nothing else and i think the qualities are also able to find in an average students also.
Sir beeing a civilian family boy i am telling you it is very difficults for us to join defence forces and sir i think without the parents support we cant do any think and i also think that in this world we can fight with any one but not with parents and i also think that in this wolrd makeing understand parents it is also very difficult becasue parents ll directly say go away from home, don’t stay with us, go in work and earn and do whatever you want.
and sir this thing happend with me many times and still happning and i dont know what to do and how to deal with parents.

good evening sir,
i would like to give you thanks for your concern to train candidates for ssb interviews . people like me who are doing jobs and still want to join army and preparing, your online training plays a crucial role . where there is no limites of timings and we dont have to be physically present there for ssb coaching.
thank you

Joining the armed forces was not my childhood ambition sir, I am motivated by surfing the net seeking info on the armed forces, their lifestyle, their motto, and I am also influenced by my friends brother who has joined the armed forces..

Sir,
This is Suraj from Bangalore medical college. As it was my childhood dream I now want to join army .but presently I am in 1st year.please give me some hint to join army after completion of MBBS.
When I was in 9th std I read a book named “Himalayan Blunder” (indo-china war) written by Brigeder John Dalavi .I was deeply moved by seeing the conditions of Indian army. I also read that that when all of the army men became martyr doctors in army took gun and laid there life for my country. I too want to be one of them and I am waiting for that chance.
In toto books have motivated me to a right path to lead a life of honor.
