The Bechdel Test of Akashganga : A Trial by Photos

The Bechdel test (/ˈbɛkdəl/ bek-dəl) asks if a work of fiction features at least two women who talk to each other about something other than a man. The requirement that the two women must be named is sometimes added.

Only about half of all films meet these requirements. The test is used as an indicator for the active presence of women in films and other fiction, and to call attention to gender inequality in fiction due to sexism.

Akashgagnga the IAF Skydiving Team on the 10th of August 2015 celebrated its 28th Birthday with more than traditional warmth,hospitality and camaraderie typical of military culture.The joie de vivre shared by one and all however leave many a bystander wondering whether typical of male and macho systems does the woman get ignored or just get a passing mention as is de rigueur. Tokon leads a team with no recording devices for audio but photos alone.
He leaves us instead, with more questions than answers.

P.S. for purposes of a transparent and fair inquiry we have not shared or mentioned the names of all concerned
