Much to our knowledge and happiness, 8th March is observed as International Women’s Day. So we at team Shaadimagic wish all you wonderful ladies out there, a very Happy Women’s Day! We Indian women have been always challenged in this patriarch society, but we managed to overcome it and stand upright. Thanks to the changing time and brands like Ariel, to break the stereotypes.
Well, the courage we manage to show today is inherited from some super powerful daughters of India who have set an example to the whole society. We shall call them ‘SHEROES’.
While some sheroes became known for their deeds, thanks to the social media, some sheroes of India still need to be known about.
Here are some wonderful ladies of our times who have a raised a bar for all of us:
1. SUNNITHA KRISHNAN
She is a social worker and founder of the NGO, Prajwala, where she takes care of the rehabilitation of sex workers and their children. Being a rape survivor gave her much courage to stand for the ones in need.
2. TESSY THOMAS
In a country where we had legendary APJ Abdul Kalam as the Missile Man, we also have our very own ‘Indian Missile Woman’, Tessy Thomas. She is amongst the first and top female scientists in India to achieve the dignity.
3. ISHITA MALAVIYA
While most of us have always been worried about tanning while going to the beach, India got its first female surfer. Ishita, is a dusky beauty and didn’t give a damn about the societal beauty standards. Way to go, Ishita!
4. CHHAVI RAJAWAT
Chhavi is the only MBA holder, to become a Sarpanch of a village in Rajasthan. She quitted her high end corporate job, just to give an ear to the predicaments of the villagers. For some women there is really a lot much beyond their education.
5. SITA SAHU
At the mere age of 15, Sita Sahu, a national sprinter won India medal at the Athen Olympics. But India failed to give her what she deserved. She didn’t care and now makes her living on her own by selling ‘Chaat’ (snacks) in Madhya Pradesh.
6. SHANTI TIGGA
She is the first female Jawan in the Indian army. Her victorious move was at the age of 35 when she was already a mother of two. We lost this precious gem quite early, but will always cherish her dignity.
7. DURGA SHAKTI NAGPAL
Durga Shakti nagpal
An IAS officer from UP, Durga launched an anti-corruption campaign and not much to our surprise, was soon suspended by the UP government. The suspension was taken aback, all due to her to her courage and will power.
8. GULABO SAPERA
Padma Shri recipient, Gulabo is a dance artist from the Kalbeliya community of Rajasthan. She was buried alive right after her birth, but was rescued by a great woman who she calls her aunt. Today she is one of Rajasthan’s finest Dancers.
9. HARSHINI KANHEKAR
The first female fire-fighter of India, Harshini has proved that no job is just a man’s job or a woman’s job. Your capabilities prove your eligibility for any job, not your gender. We are sure this woman loves to play with fire!
10. EVERY INDIAN WOMAN
Every Indian Woman.
We as a woman have now learnt the art of womanhood. We are much more than a daughter, sister or a wife. We are something which cannot be achieved by many. We are a woman of the time!
To every wonderful woman out there, all the power to you!
