She says, “I never wanted to do a desk job. In my third year of engineering, I decided that I will be a fighter pilot.” “After passing out from college, I prepared for government jobs and got selected in the Intelligence Bureau. But I joined the IAF because I always wanted to become a fighter pilot,” she said.
