Major Smita Chaturvedi (Retd) could not contain her happiness and pride as her son passed out from the Officers Training Academy in Chennai, India. While it is a matter of pride and joy for any parent to see their child donning the Indian Army uniform, for Major Chaturvedi (Retd) it was truly special as she had got commissioned into the Indian Army from the same academy 27 years ago.
The Indian Ministry of Defence shared this good news on Twitter calling it a ‘rare euphoric moment’.
The Ministry also tweeted a video of Major Chaturvedi (Retd) mentioning that she was ecstatic about her son joining the Army like herself.
A total of 125 Gentlemen and 41 Lady Cadets got commissioned into the Indian Army at Officers Training Academy this year.
