Q. Nishesh, first of all congratulations. You’ve made us all proud. Tell us something about your Schooling and your journey.
I was born in Khedia, a village near Talab Tillo. I was just one when we moved to Akhnoor. We lived there for 5 years till my U.K.G. Then we shifted to Sunderbani. I studied there till 10th standard in New Public High School. My base was formed in that School. The study atmosphere was quite good. I could understand the word ‘competition’ very well.
After that I did my 11th and 12th class studies from Ranbir Higher Secondary School in Jammu. Since it wasn’t practically possible for me to travel everyday from Sunderbani to Jammu, me and my brother shifted to the city. He was doing his graduation from GGM Science College. After my Schooling, I too got admitted in the same college and did my B.Sc after which I did my Masters in Chemistry from Jammu University.
During my last semester, I appeared for the examination of FCAD. I qualified that with good marks and then gave the exam of SSP. I cleared the exam and the Medical test too. My name was mentioned in theist that was issued in August. I got selected for the Administration Department of Indian Air Force.
I joined the Academy for my training and on 19th June, finally I came up to the rank of Flying Officer in Indian Air Force.
Q. Sir what message and what guidance would you like to give to youngster aspiring to join Indian Air Force?
See whenever we watch ads or hear about Indian Army or Indian Air Force we always see there’s a crunch of manpower in these Departments. The Nation has given so much us and it’s our turn to return it. Joining Indian Air Force is a pride for all of us, according to me.
Air Force gives you a permanent job which is a security. Then the pride, the respect you get is unmatchable. It’s not always necessary to become a Flying officer. You can serve the Nation as a frontline worker in such Departments. When people salute you, the feeling of doing something for the Nation and for country people is great.
The machines that you see in your dreams during childhood finally are in front of your eyes. How can you say no? (Smiles) It is a true feeling of patriotism and I urge everyone to at least give it a try.
Q. We’ll talk to Nishesh’s mother now. Rohini ji, tell something about yourself and how proud do you feel today?
When Nishesh was talking about dreams of flying, I felt that. Nishesh has not only made me, his family but each and every citizen of this Country proud. He is now son to all the mothers of India and brother to all the sisters. Both my sons will now serve the Country. This is my biggest proud moment. I just wish them to be true to their work and be honest.
Q. Nishesh, we all are now aware of your passion. Let us know your hobbies now.
I like to read about Mythology and History. Also, I sing in my free time. Actually my whole family is into singing. My grandmother, mother, me and my elder brother. We haven’t taken any professional training but yes we do sing.
During my training days everyone asked me to sing songs for them. I used to sing Bollywood songs for them especially for my senior Inspector. I would learn the lyrics of Mohammad Rafi’s songs and sing them the next day for him.
Q. Sir (Nishesh’s Father) Sir how proud do you feel today and how would you thank your relatives and others for support?
Firstly, I would thank my villagers. I basically belong to Khedia. It’s near Gol Gujral Post Office. I belonged to a very poor family (Gets emotional) and worked very hard in my life. My children lived alone in Patoli Brahamana while me and my wife were posted in Sunderbani. Today my excitement is at a level I cannot express in words. I’ve never felt so proud in life.
Nishesh, JK Media team congratulations you on your success. May you be a responsible and honest officer and achieve all heights of success. All the best!

An Appeal to Manoj Sinha: Kindly Regularize PDD Daily Wagers
Over time JK Media has raised its voice for PDD/PHE daily wagers, Homeguards, Asha workers, JK Police SPOs to regularize them and continue raising them until all these employees don’t get regularized. Today JK Media Executive Aashish Kholi met a PDD Daily Wager, President Akhil Sharma, and talked about the 11,000 daily wagers, which are yet to be regularized.
While speaking, Akhil said, “I’m thankful that JK Media is raising our demands. My appeal to JK LG Manoj Sinha is that employees were being regularized till 2010 in Kashmir and Doda, while in Poonch till 2005, the employees were regularized. But in Jammu and Kathua, only employees were regularized till 1997, and further, no DPC took place. During the NC regime, an order was passed that all employees till 2010 should be standardized, but the order didn’t get implemented until today. A corporation has been formed, and soon the department will be privatized, so I want the employees who have given 20 years of their profession to the department regularly”.
“We are getting 6750 rupees as our monthly pay. With such a minimal amount, how can we look after our families? If we send our children to some good school, then all our income will only be spent on the school fee. Many of our co-workers have lost their lives or arms and legs, but no senior official has ever enquired about them and their policies. Recently Manoj Sinha announced 10 lakh rupees insurance for the daily wagers, according to which if any daily wager dies on-duty, then their family will get 10 lakh rupees compensation, but the order hasn’t been implemented yet”, he added.
We aren’t terrorists’: 10th class students demand mass promotion
JK Board 10th class students once again staged a protest against JKBOSE outside Director of School Education’s office in Jammu today. After meeting him, they showed a disapproval and demanded mass promotion.
“Director Sir told us to give our exams and wait for results. We are against it! We either demand online exams or mass promotion. When Kashmir students can get promoted without exams, why not us?” said a student
“I’m here to support these students. Their demand is genuine. They had online classes. Third wave is on it’s way and we can’t risk students’ lives. JK Board Authorities must listen to their appeal.” added their supporter
The students claimed the J&K Police to have abused and physically attacked them. They disagreed with the behaviour and said it was against the law and order.
“It’s J&K Police not the goons that attacked us today. I’m still 16 and it’s against the law to hit me. We aren’t terrorists, just small kids demanding something for ourselves. At least don’t hit us.” they said
