Nine former students of Sainik School, Kunjpura, added another feather to the cap of their school as they passed out from the Indian Military Academy (IMA) in Dehradun on Saturday and commissioned as Lieutenants.
Elated, the newly commissioned Lieutenants gave credit to their school, teachers and parents for their success. “It was my dream to serve the nation. My dream has been fulfilled. Sincere efforts always help you to achieve your goal,” 21-year-old Shubhankar Kanyan, a resident of Kunjpura village in the district, told The Tribune over phone.
“I appeal to the youth to focus on their goal and work towards it with dedication. My father is a teacher and he always supported me and encouraged me to do my best,” he added.
Like Shubhankar, Nikhil Yadav, too, is on cloud nine. He belongs to Naichana village in Rewari district and his father is a postmaster. Till Class VIII, he had never imagined that he would get admission in Sainik School. His elder brother had filled his admission form and, then there was no looking back for this young boy.
“After securing admission in Sainik School, I decided to join the armed forces. My dream has come true finally. It is a proud moment for my family,” Yadav said.
Other seven alumni who have made the cut are Lieutenants Ashish Kumar of Rewari, Akhil of Mehandragarh, Saurabh Ghanghas of Hansi, Sahil Baloda of Bhiwani, Aman of Jind, Sanbir Singh of Kurukshetra and Robin Sharma of Karnal.
Sainik School principal Col VD Chadola said, “It is a proud moment for the school as nine of our alumni have graduated from the IMA and got commissioned in various regiments. Kunjeans have always been leading from the front in all walks of life. It is a proud moment for the entire Kunjean fraternity.”
