ver six hundred cadets pass out of Indian Military Academy

Six hundred and forty-nine cadets, including 24 foreign cadets, passed out of the Indian Military Academy (IMA) here today.

Dehradun (Uttarakhand), June 9 : Six hundred and forty-nine cadets, including 24 foreign cadets, passed out of the Indian Military Academy (IMA) here today.

Naval chief, Admiral Sureesh Mehta reviewed the passing out parade at the Chetwode House that homes IMA.

Charu Sharma, a newly commissioned officer said there were no words to describe his feeling. He said he was feeling great which he can't express.

"I am feeling as if a long cherished desire has been fulfilled. I had always wanted my son to join the Army and walk out with stars on his shoulders. Today, the day has arrived. I can't express my happiness and the pride I feel in my son going on to serve the country," said B.D. Sharma, Charu's father.

The cadets celebrated in customary way by tossing their caps in the air to the sound of the drums.

The IMA has a proud record of a large number of officers, decorated for gallantry, who have passed out from its portals, and has the distinction of training gentlemen cadets from many foreign countries.

The academy trains upto 1,950 officers every year. In recent years, army officials have expressed concern over the decreasing number of youth opting for a career in the forces.

The IMA was established on October 1, 1932 with British Brigadier I.P. Collins as commandant.
