Amongst the 459 cheerful faces with Stars on their shoulders during the pipping ceremony at the #IndianMilitaryAcademy, Dehradun on 08 June 2019, stood the Ganachari brothers. They had grown up with the single aim of joining the #IndianArmy, inspired by seeing their father, Maj G Ganachari of 5 JAK RIF, in uniform. However, tragedy struck when the officer passed away in 2003, leaving behind his wife, Mrs Sunanada Ganachari and his sons Abhimanyu aged 10 and Abhinav aged 7. Things were not easy as the Lady had to face financial challenges along with providing the best for her sons. A serving Brigadier who was then a Major of 5 JAK RIF, stepped in to guide them through rough sails, helping them to find a #Secure job, settle pension claims and staying in touch with them through the years to help them realise their dream. Tragedy struck again when mother of these two brothers passed away in June 2014. Abhimanyu was in his final term at IMA and Abhinav about to join an engineering college, but still very determined to join the Armed Forces. Abhimanyu got commissioned into the Corps of Engineers in December 2014. Meanwhile, Abhinav continued to resolutely pursue his dream, with the serving Brigadier, who had continued to look after their interests, arranging for his training and counselling. His tenacity and perseverance came to fruition when he took commission into 18 BIHAR on 8th June 2019 fulfilling his Mother’s dream and the brothers truly becoming ‘ Brothers in Arms’. The success story of the Ganachari brothers truly reflects the steely resolve of Army families to develop even in the face of adversities, thanks to the environmental grooming and a very strong regimental ethos which continue to remain the backbone of #IndianArmy.
