In a striking narrative of transition from crunching numbers to serving on the front lines, Lt Shubhi Agarwal’s story is a testament to the power of dreams and the diverse paths they can lead us down. Born and educated in Delhi, with a strong background in engineering from Delhi Technological University, Shubhi started her career as a manager at Novartis Healthcare in the Data and Analytics domain. However, her ambitions stretched far beyond the confines of corporate life.

A sports enthusiast throughout her school and university years, Shubhi harbored dreams of representing her nation on a global stage, believing sports to be her ticket. Little did she know, her true calling lay within the olive green uniforms of the Indian Territorial Army. “Diving into datasets to ‘Right time, Right place, and Right rig’ has been a huge change for me, and rather a cathartic one,” she reflects on her remarkable journey.

Her quest for a career in the armed forces began in her final year of college, receiving a recommendation from 4 AFSB, Varanasi, on her first attempt. Despite initial setbacks, Shubhi’s relentless spirit and dual dedication to her career in data analytics and her dream of military service saw her through. When most avenues seemed closed, the Territorial Army opened its doors wide in 2021, offering her a singular vacancy for a female officer. Shubhi seized this golden opportunity, becoming the first Territorial Army woman officer inducted into the Engineers Regiment at the Line of Control, currently serving in the Engineers Regiment (TA).
