After graduating as a Mechanical Engineer, (Madras University – GCT, Coimbatore), I joined Indian Air Force (IAF) as a permanent commissioned officer in 1972 and took voluntary retirement after 20 years when I was a Wing Commander. My ‘bond’ [job agreement] was for a minimum of 20 years [guaranteed pension].
I gave my youth to IAF and in turn IAF gave me everything. Full of pleasures and some pains, but what an experience. Forever I am PROUD to have been associated with a great institution of the Defence Services that is involved in keeping the integrity and independence of our nation.
Probably, I am the first Badaga to have joined IAF as an officer (and there are many officers now – both serving and retired)
I am delighted to urge our youngsters (both men and women) to join
‘Touch the sky with Glory’
Defence Services offer you a great career!
