Cadets' Mess

Cadets' Mess


Dining with One Accord
     The central Cadets' Mess is one of the exclusive symbols of solidarity and brotherhood among cadets. The entire body of cadets breaking bread together is a heartwarming sight and conjures up visions of belongingness, bonding and deep rooted attachment. It serves as a significant prologue to continued tri-service camaraderie and esprit-de-corps .The Mess can accommodate over 2100 cadets at a time. Its neat exterior is matched by its exquisitely designed interiors. The entrance is made of Belgian glass doors with the mythological 'Horn of Plenty' artistically etched upon it. The inner walls are aesthetically decorated with mounted swords, pistols, flags, portraits and paintings. The central section of the hall has an excellent dance floor and lovely reliefs of all the famous dancers of India, both indigenous and western, done by artists from the J.J. School of Arts, Bombay. The electric kitchen is a chefs dream come true. Gadgets and appliances include the ice cream machine, the chappati making machine, combi, ovens, dough machines and a spacious cold storage.

Grand Piano


Grand Piano

     A piano is widely considered as the most essential component of Western Music. The versatility and ubiquity of the instrument has made it one of the most sophisticated creations. The piano which was developed in the early 18th century owes its invention to an Italian fry the name of 'Bartolomea Cristofori'. The National Defence Academy has in its inventory two pianos of German origin which are classical 'Grand' variants in terms of design. They occupy the pride of place in Cadets' Mess and Officers' Mess. These pianos have recently been renovated and have been reinstated.

 

POW - MIA "You Are Not Forgotten"


POW - MIA

     At the entrance of the Cadets Mess is kept out a sadly empty table with a chair that leans against it in a forlorn manner. This is the seat of those Alumni of the Academy who are listed as Missing in Action or were taken Prisoners of War and did not return.
