Indian Army Major Euthica on Friday said that she had been working with the organisation for more than 13.5 years now. She is presently posted in Ladakh. Major affirmed that all the opportunities for women will be gradually opened in the field. Indian Army has been accepting women “in all facets”, she added. On the occasion of Women’s Day (March 8), Euthica confidently said that all women officers in the Indian Army will “go ahead in all roles.”
To mark the occasion of Women’s Day, A. Bharat Bhushan Babu, spokesperson of the Defence Ministry, felt inspired by the first women operational paratrooper of the Indian Army- Capt Ruchi Sharma.
