He decided to join India Army and not getting allured by the stacks of money of corporate world. It is a bold decision for a person coming from a family where his father used to work for cement factory earning only Rs. 60 per day and mother afflicted with polio used to clean office tables to make both ends meet.
The winner of Silver Medal from Indian Military Academy, a very hard worker by nature his decision to join army sets a glorious example for hundreds of people who wondering for a meaningful success. “The kind of mental satisfaction one gets by working for the motherland cannot be replaced by any amount of money”, says Barnana with lots of conviction in his eyes.

But it was proud moment for his parents to see him receiving silver medal for standing first in Technical Graduate Course and to see him dressed in army officer’s uniform.
