He was a good debater, a good sportsperson & good at academics too,” she mentioned.”Sainik School Chittorgarh is a boarding school and students spend approximately 9 months a year with their teachers, so they develop long-lasting bonds with teachers. Parents used to visit a school in between. I remember Jagdeep’s father was very regular at these meetings. He used to visit the school every month to monitor the progress of both his sons,” she said..@VPIndia Jagdeep Dhankhar at the residence of his former teacher Ratna Nair at Mele Champad near Thalassery in Kannur district.
