Women of Steel ! Martyr’s Wife Joins Army to fulfill her husband’s dream

The brave men, who guard our country, lose sleep so that we can sleep in peace and also sacrifice their lives for the love of the nation, deserve more than just our respect. No amount of love or words that one pours to thank our soldiers can suffice the work they do for this country. However, it’s not just them who make this sacrifice. One cannot even imagine the strength their family members show in enduring the risk of sending their bravehearts to the border.

It is not easy being a wife of an army officer but it is an honour for sure and Gauri Mahadik is one such hero who is proving to the world that she is a woman of steel. She is the wife of Major Prasad Mahadik, who was martyred in 2017 at the Indo-China border in Arunachal Pradesh. While life definitely must have stopped for a while for this brave woman, it definitely didn’t deter her from facing it with all the strength she had. Gauri is now all set to join the army herself as a tribute to her brave husband.

Gauri will be inducted as a lieutenant in the army once she completes her training in Chennai. Gauri cleared the service selection board (SSB) exams and qualified for the rank by actually topping the exam with great score. Talking about some kind of serendipity and a beautiful twist of destiny, Gauri was allotted the same chest number (28) which was also allotted to her husband when he was undergoing his training. She is a qualified lawyer who quit her job to pursue this dream in memory of her husband. It is stories like these which fill your heart with strength and courage and make you believe that every storm is followed by a rainbow.
