Once Upon A Time in RIMC

250

Boys of RIMC never really grow up and happily, the spirit of adventure and mischief lives on, even after many winters have passed. “Fatty and Kajla were to procure the digging implements surreptitiously. Tota, Soli, and Tinda were to help spread the mud! They were to make holes in their pockets, fill them with mud and go for walks all along the track from Ranjit Section to the mandir, spreading the mud so no one would suspect that we had been digging the ‘Shoe’. HS Vaid, the ‘giraffe’, was to stand as a watch tower and warn us of any approaching threat, by making sounds like the confounded owl that used to inquisitively follow us during our night-time mischievous adventures!” For nearly a century, Rimcollians have done the three Services proud, and the civvy street too. Known for their camaraderie and spirit of never accepting defeat or yielding to any adversary, whether in the battlefield or the playground, Brig Jasbir’s humorous book brings alive how mischevious teenagers are forged into soldiers. He studied in RIMC from mid-1962 to 1966. Thereafter, he did his training in NDA Kharakvasla and IMA Dehradun, where he was commissioned in 4 Kumaon.
