“It’s a proud feeling for me, my parents and it’s a different feeling. I have been craving for this since a very long time and finally, it is here, I cannot express it…it’s a great feeling. I am looking forward to complete my third stage of training,” she said while speaking to reporters after joining her operational duties at Kochi naval base.

“Women were always there in the Navy. They were not in the cockpit. Observers were there. This is something different…woman in the cockpit for the first time. It will create more opportunity for other women who want to join Defence…maybe they will start going for choppers and fighters,” she added.
