Kala is a Thamizhachi who loves simplicity and being authentic. She faces challenges with confidence and courage to facilitate compassion. Kala was in the Singapore Armed Forces's pioneer batch of female commissioned officers who trained alongside male officers in the new Tri-Service initiative in 1990. She later became a platoon commander of the Officer Cadet School’s Women Wing.
