Mar 4, 2018

Hard work is the key to success and there is no replacement for hard work. Through Hard work, one can achieve anything they want in their life. The story of Om Paithane will inspire millions of youth and especially those who dream to work for the defence/army. Here is the story of Om Paithane who became a success through his sheer willpower and hard work.

Om Paithane was once an OLA Cab Driver who will now be commissioned as an Indian Army officer on 10 March 2018 after the OTA Chennai Passing Out Parade.

In an interview, he said, “My father was a driver who had lost both his legs in a road accident and was working as a watchman. I had to support the family while studying for final year BSc computer science but I got arrears. So I started to drive for Ola. One day, a retired colonel hired my cab. We started to talk and he told me about the combined defence services examination and the endless opportunities it brings.”

Further, He added “I made the first call to the retired officer when I got through. He was guiding me throughout. I remember the careless version of me. Though I enjoyed it, this life is better. The training has taught me discipline and manners, which I am proud of,” he added.

Paithane is among the 257 cadets who will pass out from OTA on March 10. This year the cadets include a number of engineers, a national-level woman boxer, another who represented India in rugby and two Army widows. Om Paithane’s success story from a cab driver to Indian Army officer is surely inspiring.
