Col Vikram Kadian,
creativity, creativity leads to thinking, thinking provides knowledge, knowledge makes you great.”
Taking the dreams and vision
document of Bharat Ratna, late Dr
APJ Abdul Kalam seriously, RIMC took an early lead
and spearheaded the march towards being established as a truly developed world
class training Academy, strategising numerous
projects and reforms.
Our Cadets define the image
of the finest ‘Scholar Warriors’ that the Nation can be justifiably proud of.
Quickly adapting to demanding situations and changing circumstances, they,
through sheer hard work, determination and talent, dominate every competition
they participate in. They are respected for their academic acumen, appreciated
for their skill and prowess in the sports field, admired for their social
graces and envied for their co-scholastic feats. Mentored by their Seniors and Masters, the culture of care, empathy and
compassion to see every Cadet succeed is indeed at the core of RIMC culture.
Our message to the Cadets is simple - do the right thing and stand for the
The destiny of any
institution is guided and shaped by tireless services of the Members of
Faculty, who are also the permanent repository of knowledge and institutional
memory. It is indeed these venerated pillars of the institution that have remained
the true torchbearers in a century of our illustrios
history. It is heartening to acknowledge the approach of our esteemed Masters,
and their burning desire to see every Cadet excel reassures me that the future
leaders of the nation are indeed being mentored and groomed by the best. Their
role is most vital of all for it is they, through their dedicated approach for
the young cadets’ welfare, pastoral care and guidance mould
the cadets into future leaders. Their selfless devotion and the dedication to guide
the cadets augurs well for the future generations.
The task of educating,
training and motivating the Cadets is beset with many challenges. Modern day
education calls for innovative teaching - learning practices to ensure our
Cadets are prepared to face any challenge head on and stay ahead of the curve.
The College is indeed blessed to have on its side, the unflinching support
extended by HQ ARTRAC and intermediate Headquarters who have, time and again, steadfstly supported initiatives by the College and given
momentum to our aspirations.
Our support base is also the
Alumni Association, who have stood by us through thick and thin and supported
the College in preserving our history and heritage, besides helping with the
education standards by constantly providing us with the best resources and
practices from the environment.
RIMC is the best example of
what teamwork can achieve. It also has the very distinct and unique status of
being a National Monument. Steeped in tradition, shouldering the responsibility
of a century of heritage and blessed with modern vision, our cadets are in the
process of transforming the leadership landscape of our Defence
Services and indeed other professions. We soldier on in this mission following
the core values set by our predecessors and resolutely pursue the strength of
our character, which defines the spirit of RIMC.

VIVA RIMC !
