Foot Drill: Savdhan, Vishram, Aramse, Dahiney, Bayen & Pichey Mud | Scout Guide & Ncc Drill Commands



Smartness And Drill

Baden-Powell, our Founder was not against drill. He was really in favour of it. What he objected to was the indiscriminate and unimaginative use of it. He wanted that it should not be done in seasons and out. Drill is not to be overdone. Drill is not everything. There are a thousand and one things of importance which Guides have to do, and to have drill and drill only to the exclusion of these other things is what B.P. objected to.

Guides should know correct gait and posture. When they stand they should be able to stand upright and correctly, and when they walk, they should be able to walk with proper gait. Baden-Powell has referred to master these in Scouting for Boys.


Guides should know how to move from one point to another quickly and in good order whether they are together as a Guide Company or in Patrols. Frequent practice in drill will give them the necessary training and keep them smart.

"Scouts should know how to move quickly in Troop and Patrol group from one point to another", says B.P. "When done right, practice to quick and orderly Movements set them up, and make them to smart and quick." It strengthens the muscles which support the body, and by keeping the body upright, the lungs and heart, get plenty of room to work and the inside organs are kept in proper position for proper digestion of food.
