Varad Chandrashekhar Joshi of Nagpur brought laurels to the city by securing All India Rank (AIR) 16 in Combined Defence Services 2 examination (CDS) 2021 in the very first attempt and got selected for Indian Military Academy (IMA), Dehradun recently. Varad, who is an engineering graduate from Ramdeobaba College of Engineering and Management, also cracked the Services Selection Board (SSB) interview in first attempt. He also got selected for National Defence Academy (NDA) after his Class XII, but his parents wanted that their son should complete the graduation first and then try for Armed Forces. Following the same, Varad, completed his graduation this year with flying colours and then he applied for CDS and took guidance from Prahar Defence Academy. Immediately after his graduation, Varad also got offers from three different Multi-National Companies (MNC) including Accenture, IBM and Persistent Systems. But, he picked to join Armed Forces to serve the nation. “I had no knowledge about CDS at the time of my graduation. My mentor Flt Lt Shiwalee Deshpande (Retd) groomed me for this challenge,” said Varad. “I had interest to join Armed Forces from my childhood. But my visit to Attari-Wagah Border where I personally experienced the Beating Retreat Ceremony, encouraged me to join Armed Forces,” claimed Varad.
