Meerut, city lad to become Army officer
Meerut : City lad Siddharth Khurana has secured AIR 2 and has been selected in the Indian Military Academy IMA, Dehradun for Indian Army Officer’s Training through (TGC) Technical Graduate Course Entry in mechanical branch. He will soon begin his training at the Indian Military Academy, Dehradun.
With this, this resident of New Devpuri will represent the first generation of his family in the defence services. His father Deep Kamal Khurana is General Manager in MNC and Siddharth’s mother is headmistress of a government school at Meerut.
Clearing the exam, he said, was no mean feat: the process was lengthy and difficult and it took all his strength and endurance to keep him from buckling under it. “Qualifying one of the toughest armed forces exams is a like a dream come true,” I was also inclined towards it because of the army’s rich legacy and sense of pride one gets from this institution, said Siddharth.
While earlier he also got selected in Indian Air Force for flying branch in Jan 2021 but could not join Air Force Academy due to unforeseen circumstances. Finally the dream to serve the nation and to get into the Armed Forces has come true. All the family members are really happy and wished him luck for future endeavors.
