The name ‘Ezhimala’ is believed to have been derived from the seven hills (‘Ezhu’ means seven and ‘Mala’ means hill in Malayalam) that dominate the skyline of this area. The place was also known as ‘Elimalai’ meaning ‘Rat Hill’ (‘Eli’ in Malayalam means rat). Yet another legend has it that the name was derived from ‘Ezhil Malai’ meaning Land of Beauty (‘Ezhil’ means beauty). Folklore has it that the seven hills are parts of the ‘Rishabadri’ ountain that fell to earth when Lord Hanuman was carrying the mountain with Mrita Sanjivani and other herbs to Lanka for Lakshaman’s treatment after he was critically injured and lying in coma during the epic battle of Ramayana. As though to substantiate this, the area has many rare medicinal herbs. 2. History. During the Sangam era, approximately 1500 years ago, ‘Ezhimala’ was known as ‘Ezhimalai’. Sangam literature gives us a vivid picture of the life of people at Ezhimala. In 500 AD there were three main kingdoms spanning the modern state of Kerala viz, Aynad in the South, Cheranad in the Centre and Ezhimalainad in the North.
The modern districts of Kannur and Kasargode were part of Ezhimalainad ruled by ‘Nanan’. At its zenith Nanan’s rule extended up to Wynad and Gudalur in the foothills of the Western Ghats, bordering the present day Mysore district in Karnataka. It is believed that Nanan buried an immense treasure of coins in 491 AD in the foothills of Ezhimala. The Kolathiri Raja took over the reins of the kingdom from the Nanan dynasty in the 14th century AD. The Kolathiri Raja translated the name ‘Ezhimalai’ into ‘Saptasilam’ for the seven hills that dominate the area.
In the 18th century Tipu Sultan captured the area and it fell into the hands of the British, after they defeated Tipu Sultan in the third Mysore War. 3. Location.

All matters relating to trainees fall under the purview of the Training Faculty.
The Training Faculty deals with professional training in naval service subjects, and all forms of outdoor training. All matters pertaining to trainees such as accommodation, messing, discipline etc are also dealt by the Training Faculty. The administration, logistics and medical departments provide vital support for the conduct of training. 2. Decorum of Training. Being the ‘cradle’ for all officer entrants of the Navy and Coast Guard, it is imperative that all trainees at the Indian Naval Academy maintain the highest standards of turnout and self-discipline. . Initial Training. The period of initial training is 22 weeks training for trainee SLTs.

The list of various service subjects covered for Naval Orientation course is placed at Appendix J. 5. Examination.
Examinations are conducted at various stages during the course and trainees are graded for performance based on a prescribed scale. Incentives for excellence in service subjects include book prizes, awards, trophies and medals. 6. Outdoor Training. The following outdoor activities form an important part of the curriculum: (a) Physical Training (PT). PT sessions are conducted in the early mornings and extra coaching is conducted in the afternoons. Beginning with simple exercises, the trainee is gradually conditioned for advanced exercises over a period of ten weeks.
The trainee is required to clear the prescribed PT tests by the end of the course. Failure to clear the mandatory physical tests within the laid down period (including grace period) would entail relegation (repetition of the course). (b) Swimming. Swimming is compulsory and all trainees are required to clear the basic swimming test before the end of course. The basic swimming test consists of swimming 50 m (any stroke) followed by floating for three minutes while wearing a full sleeve shirt and a pair of trousers. (c) Watermanship Training (WST).
Theoretical as well as practical instructions are imparted in watermanship. Sufficient practical classes are conducted, so as to enable the trainee to understand the parts of a boat, rig the sails of a boat and 16 handle the boats in water. Proficient trainees are also given the opportunity to sail in Enterprise Class dinghies as part of the hobby club activities. Watermanship activities include:(i) Pulling/sailing training in 27 feet service whaler boat (rowing and sailing boat). (ii) (iii) Sailing (yachting) in Enterprise Class dinghy (sailboat). Power boat handling. d) Drill. Drill is the bedrock of discipline. Instructions in squad drill (ie, as part of a contingent) are imparted from the beginning of the course till completion.

A Passing Out Parade is held at the end of the course wherein successful trainees pass out of the Indian Naval Academy and proceed for their next phase of training. 17 SECTION V PHYSICAL CONDITIONING 1. Physical fitness is a major attribute of an individual in uniform.
Being physically fit enables an individual to utilise his mental faculties better and the Indian Navy desires that all its personnel are able to utilise their potential to the optimum in the service of the navy and the country. Physical training therefore forms an important element of the training curriculum at the Indian Naval Academy. 2. Past experience has revealed that trainees experience considerable difficulty in adapting to the physical training regime. Our analysis shows that this is primarily on account of the fact that a majority of the trainees have had very limited participatory experience in sports activities. 3.
Realising the limitations prevalent in our schools and colleges on the physical fitness training front, a very scientific approach is being followed at the Academy to gradually lead the candidates to the required standards of physical proficiency. It would however be prudent for candidates to utilise the time available prior to joining the navy, to condition themselves physically so that they can adapt to the training regime easier. A candidate should endeavour to do the following at least three to four times a week: Ser (a) (b) (c) Activity Running/jogging Sit-ups – straight legs Push ups Remark At least 2 to 3 km 20 10-15 . Proficiency in swimming is another necessity for a person in white uniform. It will help to a great extent if you can avail of the facilities of any water body in the vicinity of your home and gain experience in this field. You will of course be trained by the navy in swimming, but it will help if you already posses the basic skills. 5. Physical Efficiency Test. During your training at the Academy, you will be required to clear the Physical Efficiency Test (PET). These physical tests are designed for an average person and are the minimum standards expected from an officer in uniform.
The PET standards expected to be passed are as follows: – Ser No (a) (b) (c) Test For Men 2. 5 km run Bent knee sit ups Push ups Less than 11:30 25 repetitions 21 repetitions Remark 18 Ser No (d) (e) Test 300 m shuttle Swimming Less than 59 s Remark (f) (g) (h) (j) (k) (l) 50 m any style, 03:00 floating and 5 m jump For Women 1 mile run Less than 11:00 Bent knee sit ups 20 repetitions Shot put throw (12 4. 5 m lbs) 60 m sprint Less than 10 s Jump and reach 11” and more Swimming 50 m any style, 03:00 floating and 3 m jump 6.
