Dr. Francis Hoe,
Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre,
Hope this letter finds you in good spirits. The good news I am going to tell you is that our Graduation Ceremony is scheduled on September 02nd, 2010 at our Air Force Station, Hakimpet. You must have observed that graduating from the Combined Defense Services and serving the Indian Air Force is a matter of pride for any Indian and I am very happy that I am going to be one of those lucky fellows.
No doubt, the training was very rigorous, but keeping in view of the high standards of the service, it needs to be so and we proved fit both physically and mentally for the rigors of the service. I feel especially proud for being able to realize your dreams Dad! Our Air Chief is expected to be the Chief Guest of the occasion and I will be awarded the Sword of Navnagar for the Best Outstanding Candidate during the course. Convey my regards to Mom and best wishes to little Swathi.
