About the Show

In its third season Rocky and Mayur on Jai Hind bring you 8 never-before-seen facets of the Army, Navy and the Air Force.

See the only-one-of-its-kind IAF Air Warrior Drill Team one in action as they twirl bayoneted Rifles. Watch as Rocky and Mayur pass through a lethal tunnel of razor sharp rifles twirling inches from their face. An Attack Helicopter Squadron lays down withering cover fire for ground troops.

Rocky and Mayur also get to interact with the first permanent commission women officers at the Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry (JAKLI) regimental centre in the beautiful Kashmir Valley. They experience the adrenalin rush in setting up an ambush and executing it.

In the high mountains Rocky and Mayur join the officers and men to train for high altitude mountain warfare training or Haws. They experience what it must have been like for the men scaling impossible heights during the Kargil conflict.

On the high seas they are part of a secret mission on board a lethal frigate of the Indian Navy. The mission is so secret that the details of it are air dropped to the frigate only when its on the high seas. This is not ordinary frigate. It is the INS Nashak with a proud history of a successful stealth attack on the karachi harbour during the 1971 war.

In the dunes on the Rajasthan desert Rocky and Mayur work with the frontline forces of a missile battery to set up radar and practice target firing. They also visit NDA at Karagvasala. Often referred to as the cradle of brave officers of the Indian armed forces this is the institution which hones the leadership qualities of a 19 year old who join it.

Season 3
In this episode of Jai Hind, Rocky and Mayur have marched into the third largest mess hall in the world. They are at the National Defence Academy in Pune. Here the cadets of NDA shed blood, sweat and tears training to become officers of the Indian Armed Forces. Our gastronomes exchange their usual armaments of spoons and forks for hockey sticks and face-off in a tug-of-war in the sun. Diligently doing their duty for the nation Rocky and Mayur use their passion for food to become ‘official tasters’ at the NDA kitchen. This kitchen cooks up as much as 1500 litres of milk, 4000 eggs, 5 kilos of bread, a 1000 kg of vegetables & fruits and over 500 kg of non-veg dishes! Watch this episode of Jai Hind for all this, Rocky's equestrian prowess and Mayur’s lack of it.

Season 3
After giving their best shot to hockey and tent pegging Rocky and Mayur are in for more grueling exercises with the cadets of the National Defence Academy in Pune. This time, they have to dig a little deeper and push a lot harder to experience the life of an officer in training. They also need to do push-ups just to look their best for a special dinner at the Cadets’ Mess, where over 2,100 cadets and officers are all sitting down for a meal. Here our intrepid guides understand the significance of putting salt in an empty plate to remember those who did not return from battle and why a lemon is a symbol for hope. In the end, they get a bowl full of Tipsy Pudding, a cadet favourite, that they have been waiting for a while! Watch this episode of Jai Hind to know more about how hard our Armed Forces work to protect the nation.

In order to stay fit they decide against skipping any meals.

Combat Army Aviation Training School is part of the new age army, finds out Rocky & Mayur. What food sustains them, on ground and in the air, as they train to a grueling schedule that looks deceptively easy. But is the cooking and cuisine also the same? Rocky & Mayur answer the question.

About Rocky Singh

Rocky Singh was born at the Military Hospital in Jaipur where his father, Maj. Amarjeet Singh Hundal, was posted and serving with the 20th Lancers before moving to the 72 Armoured regiment. He was killed in action in the 71 war leaving behind a legacy of great pride and honour. His grandfather fought World War II in Iraq and Burma. Rocky is a product of a flat out military family, growing his hair long was always an issue and not jumping out of bed at the morning Reville (Bugle) is an old habit. He still considers himself an army of one and frequently goes to war with cuisine across the planet taking on all comers. His family are still all serving career soldiers, and he still sometimes feels the urge to enlist, really, he does .… JAI HIND.
About Mayur Sharma

Mayur Sharma is the son of a retired Indian Air Force officer so amongst other things he can make his bed with a craftsman's precision and shine his boots to a mirror finish. Mayur lost his uncle a young officer in the Indian Navy in the 1971 war and his family takes pride in this sacrifice. He is inspired by the passion, commitment, discipline and shared camaraderie demonstrated by each and every member of the Indian Armed Forces he has been fortunate enough to meet (and eat with) during the making of Jai Hind'. In turn he hopes they are inspired by the single minded focus he brings to his calling...food :)
