Kumram Bheem Asifabad: Securing a post in a government organisation is considered to be a miracle in the backward district of Kumram Bheem Asifabad. If you crack a job of Union government, it is nothing short of scripting history. Chindam Sandeep, a youth from remote Penchikalpet mandal centre has drawn the attention of many by securing the post of a soldier in the Indian Army.

The younger son of Janardhan, a daily-wage earner, Sandeep underwent coaching at a private institution in Guntur for three months in summer. He qualified in written examination and then cleared physical tests and medical examination held in July as part of Indian Army Recruitment Process. He was shortlisted for the job, results for which were announced on Wednesday night. He created a record of sorts by becoming the first soldier to join Indian Army from Penchikalpet mandal.

The youngster studied in the government school of Penchikalpet mandal headquarters and registered 7.7 CGPA in Class X exam. He is currently pursuing Intermediate vocational course at a private college. He was determined to serve the Indian Army and finally he realised his dream and brought cheer to his parents. He brought recognition to his native place as well.

“I wanted to become a soldier when I tried for the post of a constable with Telangana State Police Department in 2016. I could accomplish the goal following the guidance and encouragement of instructors and the management of the coaching academy in Cheerala of Prakasham district. My parents extended unwavering support to me in the pursuit,” Sandeep told ‘Telangana Today.’

Sandeep said he was asked to report to the Army Recruiting Office in Secunderabad between August 13 to 20, and he would join the Army in September. His parents were exhilarated over their son’s achievement. They said they were proud to be sending him to the Army. They added that the employment would ease their financial crisis.
