Celebrating the Glory of 71 years of Independence of Indian Women!
By Paliwal Jewelers

In India, whenever we hear the word “Independence”, first thing that pop ups in everyone’s mind is how our freedom struggle ended the British rule. The names such as Bhagat Singh, Subhash Chandra Bose, Mohan Das Karamchand Gandhi and Mangal Pandey have made an eternal place in the heart of every Indian. Often the women like Sarojani Naidu, Hazrat Mahal, Moolmati, Bhikaiji Cama and Tara Rani Srivastava except Lakshmi bai are overlooked by the society but they also played important roles in the making India independent. After India got free, women have boosted the credibility of the Indian civilization through groundbreaking accomplishments.

Here is a brief account of the Indian women who brought glorious womanhood and use their sovereignty to the fullest –

Sarla Thakral – In thirties, this Delhi-born girl who was not only married but a mother of four years old girl became the first Indian woman pilot.  She genuinely proved that women in India were able to make decisions of their own life and follow their passion undauntedly even before Independence. Women are now able to pursue their career in aviation because of inspirational women like Sarla Thakral who opened the  door of opportunities in the fields that were prior dominated only by men. She got her aviation license at age of 21 in 1936.  She brought a revolution in the history by flying a Cockpit followed by commercial plane.

Indra Gandhi and Pratibha Devisingh Patil

Politics prior to Independence was dominated by males but after the father's death, Indra Gandhi not only became the head of the Congress Party but also the first woman to receive Bharat Ratna. She governed India for eleven years. She brought a breeze of empowerment awareness of the fact that women can do everything that a man can and are not limited to a few professions. Another prominent personality in the same field is Pratibha Devisingh Patil who was the 12th president.  At first, Mrs. Pratibha Patil was the governor of Rajasthan after which she became the first Indian president of the country in 2007.

Reita Faria Powell and Sushmita Sen

In 1966, Indian glamour shook the whole world when Reita Faria won the Miss World Pageant. At age of 21, she became the first Asian woman to win the title of Miss World. The modelling and bollywood industry were waiting for her arrival but she instead of entering into the glam world, she pursuit her MBBS and also become first “Miss World” who processed the degree of a doctor. Sushmita Sen is the role model for today’s generation as she became the first Indian to hold the title of Miss Universe in 1994 because of her bold and beautiful way to express her thought.

Kiran Bedi

 She is the first women who leaded all the males’ contingent in 1975 at the Republic day parade which is the most prestigious honour for Police officers. When she completed her training she got her posting in Chanakyapuri, New Delhi. She truly gave wing to the Indian women by not only becoming the first woman with officer rank – IPS officer in 1972 but bringing new reforms to the country. She has founded many NGOs and societies in the past 35 years that work for the betterment of underprivileged people to provide education, better health care, vocational training, and education in rural and suburban area. Her efforts for the country earned her many awards and accreditation from the Indian government

In many Indian states, the female population is less than the male, still they are ahead of them. Women have shown true meaning of living an independent life in India which is beyond the level of what Gandhiji would have imagined at the time of independence
