Foreign Postings PowerPoint Presentation: Excerpt from Leela Samson Daughter of Admiral Samson (Ex commandant of NDA) The academy not only put cadets 'through their paces', but equally every officer and his wife, their children, ayahs and every tinker, tailor and candle-stick maker that lived there. Situated in a shallow valley surrounded by a range of mountains, Khadakvasla looked down on a beautiful lake on one side, across which, on a clear morning, you felt you could touch one of Shivaji's fortresses called Simhgarh perched on the next range of mountains. At the base of this mountain was the Film Institute of India, which had just been set up….. You cannot live 'the service life' without getting attached to the soil of the place you are in. So many memories, so much joy, so much to be grateful for. It was the best life a child could have in India. The services taught us tolerance—actually tolerance was not a word in our dictionary then; it was more like a deep bond of affection, a feeling of true camaraderie and brotherhood with people of diverse social class, region and religion. And there was no self-consciousness about it. We felt as close to our jawan brothers as we did to our parents' colleagues. Everyone participated together in celebration and sorrow. It was like the seamless yet distinct lines of a patterned blanket.
