December 3, 2017

Hyderabad: Vidul Thimmanna, a former student of Army Public School, Bolarum in Hyderabad, has topped the All India Merit List of Technical Entry Scheme (TES) to join the Indian Armed Forces. He hails from Kodagu and is the son of Colonel C.M. Thimanna and Veena Thimmanna.

Col. Thimanna is a Shourya Chakra awardee and is currently posted at the Military College of Electronics and Mechanical Engineering, Secunderabad.

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 Merit List was released on Nov. 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.

“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,” Vidul said.

“We are proud of our son for taking such a decision. I am confident that he will definitely keep the name of the country above self,” said his mother Veena Thimanna.
