FIRST WOMAN WHO WON GOLD MEDAL IN INDIAN ARMY


Anjana Bhadoria  was  one of  the 25  women cadets of  the first  woman cadet batch of   Indian army   in 1992  inducted  through the Women Special Entry Scheme (WSES).The  journey  for  Anjana     in  the  Armed  forces  was not easy but its her  faith and determination to conquer her fears which  led her way to success as rightly quoted “ it is fatal to enter an war without the will to win it”.


She believed in "To live for something rather than die for nothing ", she followed her belief and joined the  armed forces in 1992 .Anjana bhadoria father was in Airforce so she already has a glimpse of what life in the armed forces  was  all about , “discipline, self-respect, pride for unit and  country, a high sense of duty and obligation to comrades and to superiors, and a self confidence born of demonstrated ability.” .Before joining the Indian army she had completed her Msc in Microbiology and was working in one of the pharmaceutical firm in Chandigarh.  Initially her family was not in favour of her  joining the armed forces but they have to give up in front of Anjana passion for armed forces.she too have  proved herself  by topping her batch and getting gold medal .when Anjana got commissioned her first posting was In Calcutta.


Initial years of her service as a women officer in the armed force  were not easy as people  are not familiar with women officers in army at that time but Anjana bhadoria with her faith and determination   paved her way towards her success  and  served 10 years  in  the Indian army.
