Gender Disparity in Military Achievements

Author: Ashok Sajjanhar 

Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar raised the issue of ‘demoralisation’ of the troops if a woman comrade was to get captured by the enemy! It needs to be recognised that none of these arguments and explanations are peculiar to the Indian military establishment.

Author: Air Marshal BK Pandey PVSM, AVSM, VM (Retd)

Author: Vijay Khare
