Swati Mahadik, A Martyr's Wife, Joins The Indian Army As Lieutenant”

Swati Mahadik, wife of late Col Santosh Mahadik who had been martyred in Jammu & Kashmir in 2015, graduates from Chennai's Officers Training Academy to join as an officer in the Army Ordnance Corps Her husband, Colonel Santosh Mahadik, had been martyred in November 2015, fighting terrorists in the Manigah forest of Kupwara district, Jammu and Kashmir. After being advised by her husband's seniors in the army, Nidhi made a decision to prepare for the Services Selection Board (SSB) exams. I wish I could go back to my old life with Santosh around. After wearing this uniform, I want to know what work has to be done and I will learn it.

After Colonel Mahadik's death, Swati had not only expressed her desire to don the uniform, but also said that both her children will join the armed forces when they grow up. Ms Swati's children - 12-year-old daughter Kartikee and 7-year-old son Swaraj - were present at the ceremony where she was commissioned into the Army. It was not easy for her (Lieutenant Swati) as she had to match her fitness and other skills with cadets much younger to her.

Nidhi Dubey is 32. "My children are happy that I have become an Army officer like their father". The widow-mother of two kids was commissioned by the Army in the rank of Lieutenant.

"Look at Nidhi, she's an officer now".

"We have had many inspiring stories at OTA in the past as well".

An exhaustive account of Colonel Mahadik's courage has been documented in India's Most Fearless, an upcoming book from Penguin authored by this correspondent and news website Livefist editor-in-chief Shiv Aroor. Swati and the rest of the Mahadik family were barely consolable when Col Mahadik lost his life in November. "She had already heard", remembers Major Kumar, then adjutant at 41 Rashtriya Rifles headquarters. "Otherwise, she matched or even bettered than some of the younger cadets", he added.

"She called again a short while later". She was four months pregnant at that time and her in-laws suddenly abandoned her and asked her to leave. It has taken her months to gather herself together. "She hung up the phone".

"I was initially scared of water and hesitant to take the 10-m jump in the water". She is a determined lady and it had its impact on other cadets as well.
