With Ansha’s entry to the force, a new history is born. As far as I understand, she is the first lady to get into Indian Army from CEC (Update: the first lady to Indian Military is Mrs. Kavitha Vimaldev-CEC-2004 who is currently a pilot in Indian Air Force).

.

Congrats! You’ve made us all feel proud! And all the best for a bright career.

Update:

.

After this post was published, Ms. Ansha V Thomas attended another SSB to Indian Air Force and was recommended for that too. Thus, she had two offers simultaneously – one from Indian Army and the other from Indian Air Force. She chose the former one and has joined Officers’ Training Academy (OTA), Chennai on 5th May, 2012, after completing her first year of study of M.Tech Industrial Engineering degree at National Institute of Technology, Calicut.
