First Time in India- Former Indian CM sends his daughter to serve in the army- She is army officer

When we talk about Indian army, we are bound to get goosebumps in our hearts. We have a wrong perception that only men are tasked with responsibilities to serve their nation. But one shouldn’t forget the fact that even women are no less audacious when it comes to protecting the nation. They also play a substantial role in in the country, just like men.

There is nothing in this world that can be a hindrance to women from achieving great things in life. The society’s mindset overlooks women’s achievements, and much importance and hype is given to men. It is important to felicitate both the genders equally,so that the nation can get the best result possible. Needless to say the country cannot progress if 50% of population behind is left behind.

 Who is Capt Dr Shreyashi Nishank?

Capt Dr Shreyashi Nishank has done something that may set up a paradigm in Indian politics. She is the latest women to have joined the Army Medical Corps as a potential officer. Her father is no ordinary man. He is the former Chief Minister of Uttarakhan- Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank. It doesn’t happen often in our country that a politician sends his own sons/ daughters to army. For our politicians usually send their kids abroad with our money. Let’s appreciate this man this exemplary work. This is something that all other political leaders need to learn.

Union Minister for Foreign Affairs and former Army chief Gen VK Singh conveyed his hearty congratulations to Pokhriyal on the splendid feat of his daughter. She will be posted at Military Hospital at Roorkee in Haridwar district of Uttarakhand.

Former CM urged his daughter to join Indian Army:

Pokhriyal Nishank always dreamed to see his daughter in the Indian Army outfit and now that he is pumped up after everything went just like that way he had thought. The former CM motivated his daughter to join the Army during a trek to Kedarnath. He is also said to be a very patriotic person.

Sharing his feelings, he was proud that his daughter had joined the Army Medical Corps as an officer. He highlighted the importance of daughters are no less than sons and said it was a solid responsibility of every parent to provide them (daughters) with education of the highest quality.

Importance of Indian Army:

With increased terrorism from neighboring countries, fatal threats from other sources and so many revolts that keeps ticking the clock day in and day out, it is a special thank to the Indian Army that India is safe and sound. Sometimes, we run short of adjectives and superlatives to describe them in one word.

Day by day, the respect towards the Indian Army is increasing and we couldn’t have asked for a better protection from them who maintain a permanent military base in the region at an altitude of over 6,000 m. Indian soldiers are the real heroes who risk their lives to give real-time protection for their nation. They are considered among the very best in high altitude and mountain warfare.
