To learn about joining the Indian Army

Meet your mentor, Captain Lekshmy

A post-graduate in Physics, Capt. Lekshmy Natarajan (Retd) cleared the SSB exam in the first attempt and joined the Officers Training Academy, Chennai. She later got commissioned into the Military Intelligence Corps and served the Indian Army in uniform for 5 years (short service).
In March 2019, she co-founded the HEAL Foundation (Holistic Education and Adaptive Learning) where her mission is to teach ‘Emotional Literacy’ to educators and learners across India. She also co-founded Armour of Care (AOC), a disaster management group that conducts rescue operations with smiles and hope to people in distress.

Her vast experience in the army and with children has inspired her to educate future army officers about a career in the Indian Armed Forces. In this one-of-a-kind ‘Career Conversation Class’, Capt. Lekshmy plans to share her knowledge, skills and learnings online with a few students (13-25-year-olds) – an experience Capt. Lekshmy wishes she had when in school.

Note: This is a Mentorship Program and does not guarantee an entry into the academy or clearance of CDS or SSB. Students selected will not be promised/promoted/endorsed in any defense circle or groups.
