Kudos! To Avani Chaturvedi, Bhawana Kanth and Mohana Singh for creating history by becoming the first Indian women fighter pilots in their early 20s. Hats off for their courage and confidence to devoid a fear. It shows that a woman is more than a man till they refused to believe it. Women of India are taking roll of fighter pilot is not less than any great social achievement. Indian Society has accepted and modernized according to its needs. The achievements of the three valiant daughters are a significant milestone for the Indian Air Force, as this is the first time it has permitted women into combat roles. Of course inducing women in air force service as commissioned pilots opens new arena in defence sector. All Indian women should be proud of this achievement of the three young ladies for holding on to their ambition to serve as fighter pilots. Salute to such women pilots, who sacrifice their personal ambitions at the altar of service to the nation. You are the role models to many younger girls and even boys of this great nation.
