Driven by his passion, he convinced his parents to permit him to follow his dream. Consequently, he joined the Officers’ Training Academy in Chennai in October 1999 as part of SS-70 course. Unfortunately his mother passed away in Sep 1999, but taking the tragedy in his stride, he went to OTA Chennai to join the training in October 1999.  After completing the training, he passed out of OTA Chennai as a Lieutenant in Sep 2000 at the age of 24 years.


He was commissioned into the Corps of Signals, an important arm of the Indian Army that handles its military communications. The Corps has the responsibility of providing reliable and responsive communications to the Army under harsh terrain and tough battlefield conditions in consonance with its motto, “Teevra Chaukas” meaning “Swift and Secure”. Besides having soldierly skills, Lt Bhushan was a good athlete and bodybuilder, who won many laurels in various sports competitions. After getting commissioned in Sep 2000, he got posted to Amritsar in Punjab as his first assignment.
