On Cock & Bull today, we are joined by Ankur Naik, Squadron Leader & Ex-ADC to The President of India, for Presidents Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam and Mrs. Pratibha Patil. Cyrus talks to Ankur about what it's like working so closely to the President of India, the relationships one forms with a person of such stature, how one enters the Indian Air Force with only 30-35 applicants qualifying each year, and lots more. They talk about the process of becoming a Squadron Leader, how flying a fighter plane feels, and how Rakesh Sharma is and inspiration to Ankur and so many others. They also talk about travelling to different countries as part of the President's entourage, how many ADCs does the President of India have, how they are chosen and the story of ADC as a whole. Further, Ankur tells us about meeting APJ Abdul Kalam for the first time and the responsibility an ADC has at the office, and shares what each President who he served under was like. Tune in for an absolutely unique and fascinating episode of Cyrus Says.
