The Indian Air Force has launched a new campaign championing equality and challenging gender stereotypes.
A new video, titled Ladki Hoon Main (I am a Girl), takes aim at the notion that women aren't cut out to work in the air force.
"I am a girl. Of course, I'm scared of loud noises. And I hide from the sound of firecrackers," says a voice-over on the video, which has been viewed many thousands of times on YouTube.
"How can I bear the burden of a job? I'm a girl after all. From the ashes of my ambition I will give birth to a boy. On someone else's bravado, I will bat my eyelashes."
The video shows a woman going about her job as a fighter pilot, before ending with the line: "I am just a girl. A girl who's only supposed to be a homemaker is the girl who will now defend our homes."
In June 2016, the Indian Air Force inducted its first three female fighter pilots. At that time women comprised 2.5 per cent of the armed forces in India, working mostly in non-combat roles.
Neighbouring country Pakistan has about 20 female fighter pilots. The Pakistan Air Force (PAF) began inducting women into combat roles in 2006.
