“Col I.S Deol has not made me an officer of Indian Army but also an Indian who has pride to be an Indian and good human.

His emphasis during his classes uses to be ‘that you try to be good human being first, rest every thing will follow.’ He gave us this message in very-very simple language and words- probably young heart at that stage of my life I took it to my heart. Passing in SSB was just pea-nuts. I never came to know how/when I got through SSB and that motivated me further to try to become even more good human being. And today in uniform when I get good response from my command and the people whom I am leading from the front-my heart long for the moments, times which I spent with/ under Col I.S Deol in Minerva Academy. He was confident about what he thought and I am confident of what I learnt. God bless him. God Bless you all.

Time used well rings great success, great achievement, And of course time has been spent under great men, like Col I.S Deol- it can change the pathways of oceans and seas.

I got SSB coaching from Minerva Academy under Col. Deol. I am very happy man today. I remember many small small things which he taught us/preached us- right among us. Those small small things made us/me in particular to achieve big big achievement in pious profession of armed forces. I succeeded not only in SSB in year 1991 but also in all these years in uniform. We are proud to be associated with Minerva Academy.

                                                                        All the best.
