Mangaluru, Dec 22, 2016 : A cheerful young girl who is a software engineer hailing from Bolur in Mangaluru has brought laurels to her hometown and district by being the only woman to emerge successful in the Navy Selection exams this year. She has been appointed as Aviation Specialisation Observer in Indian Navy.
She is Disha Amrith, daughter of Amrith Kumar and Leela couple. A Computer Engineering Graduate from the BMS College in Bengaluru, she has been working as a computer engineer since the past one and half year after getting selected through campus recruitment.
But her great urge to join the Defence Forces and serve her motherland motivated her to appear for the fifth time and emerge successful in her mission.
Disha who had appeared for Army selection test four times in the past, was selected twice and had even successfully faced the medical tests. However owing to the limited posts available, Disha who stood 11th and 14th respectively in the exams, could not realise her vision. However, this time she managed to emerge successful in her first attempt in the Navy Selection Test.
Disha’s sister Jyothsna too had appeared for Army entrance test twice and this was an inspiration to Disha.
Disha’s father who is a strict disciplinarian had also strived to instill patriotic values in the minds of his children, which in a way had developed an urge in them to join the defence forces.
