SSB Coaching Testimonial Rishit Bansal

Rishit Bansal        

I think I have most close SSB date amongst all. Its 2nd December. I found Minerva on internet. Hence, I opted for it. While coming I don’t even know how it would be. But after coming here it feels like my second home. Made a lot of friends here. Learnt a lot. And had a very beautiful and memorable days here. The environment is too good. The policy here I laid rest upon all the Minerva values and norms. Oberoi Sir’s “What SIRR!!” LOOOOK ATT DAT ONE”, kakkar sir’s smile, Mani sir talking style is always to be remembered.
Learnt a lot during the next 10 days. Never outside my home before, but found that it's beautiful to me some time outside the home. Learned and earned values to be implemented, friends forever and an experience to be shared.
3) Found the academy through internet. Infrastructure, hostel, surroundings are too good.
4) Confidence is not too much high but like the Minerva I know I will make it. Sir, ko vachan jo dia hai.Besan ka laddo khilana hai.
5) Even if you are not going for SSB. These values and lessons are taught to live a great life ahead. Everyone must cultivate the values they taught here. Overall a very realistic approach towards life and difficult situations.
