Photshoot at NDA

30th August,2009,Sunday:
Had an excellent photo shoot at NDA…I was awed and awed..
The campus,layout,buildings,atmosphere…it was all magnificent..
Located among the picturesque Sahyadri hills,it feels only apt that the huge establishment stands in the foreground to the lovely Sinhagad fort-the hunting ground of Chhatrapati Shivaji..
Green colors all around,blue-n-grey skies,multi-shaped clouds,wet black tar roads,mind blowing structures,tanks,ships and anti aircraft missiles(used in the wars) on display,panoremic views from the Khadakwasla lake..perfect setting for any photography enthusiast..As it happened,there were two photographers in our group(i.e.if you’d be so kind as to call me a photographer :D)

Thanks Monal,for showing us around so well and thanks Sumeet,for bringing us the opportunity to visit the academy and your photography tips!

..Below is the photo stream..Find complete album here.

Param Veer Chakra recipient Manoj Pandey Block:

Sudan Block:The building is named after the African republic which gifted a hundred thousand pounds in 1941 for the construction of a suitable war memorial, in grateful recognition and commemoration of the gallantry and sacrifices of Indian troops in the defence of Sudan in WWII.
The Sudan block is the nerve center of the NDA and houses the main administrative blocks in addition to the Departments of English, Hindi, History, Mathematics Foreign languages.
