She joined the MNS Corps of the Indian Army in 1977, stood first in the All India Merit list and was awarded the President’s Medal along with the Air Force Station (Bangalore) trophy as best cadet. Rita shares, “I was one of the first lady officers from Himachal Pradesh in the MNS Corps. Once I wore my uniform the same people who used to laugh at me, saluted me and I found my value.
In the forces, there was a special subject taught to the officers- OLQ (Officers like Qualities), and this particular module inspired her to polish the common man the forces way. To tweak this subject to fit one and all, she took a crash course from a Swiss Indian Finishing school in Personality and Charm enhancement after retirement and is now doing People Packaging as a profession. Rita has made it her mission to spread her story in hope of inspiring others to make the most of each day they are given. “Why waste your time harping on insignificant things?” Rita asks. “Believe in defining your life by the positive moments and not the negative.
