Aarohan[1] (meaning Ascent) is a TV show broadcast on Doordarshan in 1990s. The show was written and produced by Pallavi Joshi, who also played the character of protagonist Nikita.

Aarohan takes place in a make believe scenario about women cadets joining Indian Navy (as women could not join combat force in Indian Navy then). It followed their lives and their training in the Naval Academy. The 13-episode series ended with a climax where cadets dealt with a war-like scenario.

The show's lead is a headstrong, passionate defence forces girl, Nikita. Her father (Satyen Kappu) and brother (Amit Behl) are in the Indian Army. She has a shy friend (Shefali Shah), who joins the academy with her.

Anju Mahendru, Arun Bali, Tarun Dhanrajgir, Harsh Chhaya all play naval officers of different ranks in the academy. Girish Malik plays Nikita's friend. R Madhavan has a cameo role of a naval officer.
