From Shore to Summit: NCC’s Cyclothon Chronicles the Western Axis Triumph

In a remarkable celebration of 75 years of the National Cadet Corps (NCC), the Mega Cyclothon “Mahila Shakti ka Abhedya Safar” embarked on a monumental journey from Kanyakumari to New Delhi, reaching Pune on December 27, 2023. The cycling expedition, led by 11 Senior Wing (Girl) cadets under the guidance of Team Captain Brig NS Chaarag, pays homage to the theme of Nari Shakti in the Republic Day Parade 2024.

A Journey of Strength and Empowerment:

The Cyclothon, stretching over 3232KM along the western axis of India, aims to symbolize the unyielding strength and contribution of women to India’s growth. The team endeavors to inspire the youth to carry forward the narrative of India’s transformative journey.

Flagged In at National War Memorial:

On December 27, 2023, the Cyclothon team reached Pune, where it was ceremoniously “Flagged In” at the National War Memorial. Wing Commander Suresh Mehendale (Retd), a distinguished 1971 War veteran, presided over the event alongside local NCC Cadets. Brig Arjun Mitra, Group Commander NCC of Pune, added his presence to this solemn occasion. The cycling team paid their respects to the fallen soldiers at the War Memorial, embodying the spirit of sacrifice and valor.

Continuing their Pune visit, the Cyclothon team is scheduled to explore the National Defence Academy Khadakwasla on December 28, 2023. This will be followed by a visit to the iconic Fergusson College, an institution steeped in educational history. These visits not only mark a cultural exchange but also showcase the seamless integration of educational and military heritage.
