Talking to Haryana First, Lieutenant Dr. Navya Sangwan said that she had got a seat in PGIMS Rohtak medical college based on her NEET score but the sheer passion of donning olive uniform drove her to AFMC where she had the best of both worlds.

“I had a choice to be a doctor even at PGIMS Rohtak but my father asked me whether I just want to be a doctor or an army officer and a doctor simultaneously, I am happy to choose the latter”, she added. She added that she decided her future in uniform due to the inspiration  to serve the country from her family members, especially her grandfather. On women empowerment, she said that the uniform gives the confidence to deal with life without any fear so more and more girls should join forces. 

Satpal Sangwan, former cabinet minister and ex-Dadri MLA, said that not only her granddaughter Navya is in Indian Army as a medical officer but his grandson Manav Sangwan is also undergoing training in the Army after cracking the prestigious NDA exam.

Sangwan said that a politician should set an example before society by sending their children to borders to serve the country’s defence system if they really wanted to change the system.

Navya’s father Sunil Sangwan is jail superintendent at Rohtak’s Sunaria Jail and mother Sunita Devi, a junior lecturer of English.
