Swati Mahadik is a wife of Late Col. Santosh Yashwant Mahadik. She has  set an example of true bravery. The move taken by her shows her love towards her husband, devotion to her country and true valour!

The death of Col. Santosh Yashwant Mahadik while battling militants in the forests of Kupwara in Kashmir in November last instilled in his 32-year-old widow a single-minded determination to take forward his work by joining the Army.
Swati Mahadik is set to don the olive green uniform after clearing the gruelling Service Selection Board (SSB) examination. She will undergo further training at the Officers Training Academy in Chennai.
Moral courage
To realise her aim stated so plainly with such a powerful directness at her husband’s funeral, Ms. Mahadik displayed the rare quality of moral courage to sublimate her personal pain for an ideal her husband had passionately fought.
Instead of adopting a revanchist attitude towards militants, Ms. Mahadik, like her husband, entertains a noble and challenging vision to integrate militants into the mainstream.
“Militants are provoked and misguided. They are humans like us. I want to educate them and do something for them as my husband did,” she had said in the days after his funeral.
“A month after the death of my brother, she shifted to Pune and started gearing up to crack the SSB examination. We supported her and took care of the children. Her daughter Kartiki is in Std. VI and she has been sent to a boarding school at Dehradun and son Swarajya is studying in a boarding school at Panchgani,” said Col. Mahadik’s brother, Jaivant Ghorpade, a milkman.
‘Tremendous dedication’
Ms. Mahadik, a graduate from the University of Pune, began the intense training with tremendous dedication. “On May 25, she was called for an interview, and she has cleared all five rounds. We are proud of her,” Mr. Ghorpade said.
