3rd consecutive generation of this family in Army
Army runs in blood...3rd generation of the same family in Indian Army.
We are all proud of Indian Army. Many kids wish to enroll in Indian Army since stories of courage and valour inspire them to do so.
A family in Udaipur has been serving in Indian Army since long. Their 3rd generation has also joined defence forces. From this family 7 people have served the nation. Every time a child is born in this family, he grows up seeing the uniform. Falling in love with the spirit of soldiers, the child follows footsteps and gradually his uniform joins the others.
This is about a family hailing from a village known as Asoliyon ki Madri. 35 kms from Udaipur, this Rao family is known as the Army family in the village. It all began with Lieutenant Colonel Keshar Singh Rao. Being the eldest in the family, he was an inspiration for his brothers. Younger brothers Subedar Bhim Singh and Colonel Guman Singh Rao also joined Indian Army. Their nephews, Kishan Singh who is son of their other elder brother Sardar Singh Rao, and Major Sushil Singh Rao who is son of Colonel Keshar Singh Rao also joined Army following the family tradition of love for nation.
Colonel Guman Singh Rao’s daughter Priyamvada Singh could not stay behind. She also followed the brave Army men of the family and joined Indian Air Force. She is at present serving as Flight Lieutenant in Guwahati. Colonel Guman Singh Rao is serving as Secretary, District Soldier Board.
