It was a proud moment for retired Major Smita Chaturvedi. She was feeling nostalgic when her son got commissioned in the Indian Army in a similar fashion that she was 27 years ago.
On July 30, cadets who were in the Indian Army in Chennai got commissioned at the Officers Training Academy.
"A rare euphoric moment for a Lady Officer: Major Smita Chaturvedi (Retd) Commissioned from Officers Training Academy, Chennai before 27 years in 1995, saw her son getting Commissioned in the same manner in the same Academy today," Defence PRO Chennai wrote on their Twitter handle.
“For him (her son) it is huge and for me it is extremely euphoric….I’d like to congratulate all the cadets passing out today and congratulate OTA on grooming them so well,” the retired Major told.
