    Hyderabad :

    Vidul Thimanna, an ex-student of Army Public School, Bolaram, Secunderabad, has topped the all India merit list of Technical Entry Scheme (TES) to join the Indian Armed Forces. The list was released on November 29. Vidul, who is presently an engineering student at the prestigious Army Institute of Technology, Pune, will discontinue the course and join the Indian army.

    Vidul’s father Col CM Thimanna, a Shaurya Chakra awardee, is currently posted at the Military College of Electronics and Mechanical Engineering Secunderabad and hails from Coorg (Kodagu) in Karnataka. “It has been my passion to serve the country by joining the Indian Army. To me, the challenging and the adventurous life the army offers is any day better than delivering from a cubicle of a MNC,” he said.

    The Technical Entry Scheme is a technical intake of the Indian Army with the aim of transforming young boys into techno-warriors during the course of training of four years. “The modern day operational requirement needs an officer to possess a synergistic blend of healthy body and a sound technical mind. Technical entry scheme is a highly competent entry into the Indian army with a very limited intake and rigorous standards of selection procedures and presently is the most sought after entry,” according to army officials.

    Vidul Thimanna had earlier this year cleared class XII examination with a score of 97 per cent.

    “We are proud of our son for taking such a decision and positive that he will definitely keep the name of the country above self throughout,” Vidul’s mother, Veena Thimanna said.
