Hello Friends!! Here I am wishing you a very Happy Republic day and with that I welcome you all to this blogtrain of 13 wonderful bloggers named as #Right2Write initiated by www.wigglingpen.comand a special thank to Jhilmil from www.mommyinme.com for directing you to my blog.
And yes! thats me!totally in love with this olive green jacket. And the day, I saw this jacket, I knew that I was going to write this post. Men in uniform have always attracted everyone and has been used as a badge of honour for a charming personality but much hasn’t been heard about the brave women in uniform. They have always been an unsung hero. so, I dedicate my post to these unsung heroes( with special reference to Indian army)
Breaking the glass ceiling
The Indian Army doesn’t allow women in combat roles and combat supervisory roles like the Infantry, the armed corps and mechanised Infantry, rather support roles only though it has been agreed to allow them in combat role but at present its yet to be implemented.
women in the non-medical cadre, serve as Short Service Commissioned (SSC) officers and are not eligible for pension benefits. Even then we have some exemplary ladies to quote upon who have been successful in breaking the glass ceiling.
1. Priya Jhingan: First Lady to join the Army as an officer.
2.Mitali Madhimitha: The first woman officer in the Indian Army to receive a gallantry award.
3.Divya Ajith Kumar: She created history by becoming the first Lady Cadet to be conferred by the Army with the coveted ‘Sword of Honour’.She led all women contingent of 154 women officers and cadets during the Republic Day 2015 parade.
4.Sophia Qureshi: Lieutenant Colonel Sophia Qureshi is the first woman officer to lead an Indian Army contingent at a multi-national military exercise named ‘Exercise Force 18’, the largest ever foreign military exercise hosted by India.
My tribute to the Unsung Heroes:
Lets take out a moment to applaud the women in uniform.She looks tough , she is an epitome of bravery,she is leading from the front and ready to take the world by storm. You have given her a chance but she is there by choice.
Lets take a cue from her…pursue your passion.We are women considered as God’s best creation and we are equally passionate to pursue our dreams, lets pursue it in the best possible way.
Lets fight like a Women in uniform whether you are in uniform or not. You might not get a medal on your uniform for your good deeds but in real life medal comes in the form of smiles..lets spread smile.
And now you can widen your smile as the train moves to Moumita’s station who will enlighten you on “Is right to equality formulated in the truest sense in present sense?”, catch her onwww.socialdipper.com
