MUMBAI: One of the most reputed training academies globally, the National Defence Academy, popularly known as the NDA, holds the distinction of being the first tri-services academy in the world. The cadets of all three defence services - army, air force and navy are trained together before proceeding further to their individual training academies. For the first time ever, Discovery Channel’s REVEALED: NATIONAL DEFENCE ACADEMY takes viewers on an exploratory journey through one of the country’s finest institutions, the National Defence Academy.



Watch the special REVEALED: NATIONAL DEFENCE ACADEMY on Sunday, January 26 at 9 PM, only on Discovery Channel.



Discovery Channel takes viewers inside this fascinating and enigmatic institution, to understand what makes the NDA so exceptional. Steeped in tradition and lore, the one-hour long film delves into the academy’s focus of instilling the qualities of a soldier into a young cadet who in the future will go onto serving his nation with courage and pride and covers the three-year journey of cadets as they make their way through the course.



Rahul Johri, senior vice president and general manager – South Asia and Head of Revenue, Pan-Regional Ad Sales and Southeast Asia, Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific said, “We are delighted to present REVEALED: NATIONAL DEFENCE ACADEMY which goes behind the scene to understand what makes it such a unique institution. The film charts out the history of the institution as the cradle of military leadership and the qualities the academy instills into a young cadet who in future goes onto serving the nation with courage and pride. It’s another first from Discovery Channel.”



Though the idea for a Joint Services Military Academy had taken root at the conclusion of the Second World War and a Joint Services Wing was first established in Dehradun in 1949, the National Defence Academy was established in 1955.  Besides a brief history of the NDA and the fact that the Academy, located in Khadakwasla, near Pune, is spread over 8000 acres with the Sinhgad Fort in its backdrop.



This unique institution today is the pride of not only this country but also for the various other countries which send their cadets there for training.After graduating from NDA, the cadets either join the Indian Military Academy, the Air Force Academy or the Indian Naval Academy. These young men become Guardians, Protectors and Defenders of the Republic of India.
