A WORKSHOP organised at the Som Hall of Infantry School, Mhow concluded on Thursday. Speaking at the closing ceremony Infantry School Commandant Lt Gen Satyevir Yadav complemented all the officers for their active and wholehearted participation in the event. He affirmed that the workshop was a new beginning, which would certainly go to transform a raw and unshaped young officer into a confident, happy and a thoroughly professional colleague.
