    Default The Brave Women of India




    In light of the break-through made in the Bhanwari Devi case, we remember not the atrocities committed to her but the brave woman she was. In doing so, we also pay tribute to some other women who’ve braved the world around them. Here are the brave women of India we tip our hats off to!

    Bhanwari Devi: How does a low-class potter from a small village in Rajasthan have the heart of a lion? Bhanwari as part of her job for the Women’s Development Project took up the cause of various issues related to land, water, health etc. It was however in 1992 when she took up the case of child marriage, that she found herself alienated. The consequences were dire, Bhanwari was gang-raped and a major court case ensued. It was for the first time in the conservative region that a woman was not ashamed of rape and spoke openly about it. She braved social boycott and risked her life for a cause, shaping the women’s movement in Rajasthan. She has also emboldened victims of rape to come forth and demand justice.

    Barkha Dutt: A face that has beamed to our living-room over the years, bringing us the most in-depth reports from across the country, Barkha Dutt is truly the face of a liberated Indian media. Her heroism was brought to light when in 1999 she covered the Kargil War and lived with the soldiers to broadcast everything first hand to the people. There kick-started a career that is a national phenomenon. From interviews with international delegates to being at the scene of all major news events in India, she is undeniably a brave Indian woman.

    Arundhati Roy: A novelist and activist, she rose to fame when she won the Booker Prize in 1997 for her debut novel ‘The God of Small Things’. She is a true firebrand who has actively supported the Kashmiri fight for peace, allied with Medha Patkar against the Narmada Dam Project and spoken against the US-UK invasion of Afghanistan. Recently, she supported the cause of the Maoists too. Though she has come under a lot of criticism and has her share of enemies, this talented lady still dares to be different.

    Kalpana Chawla: Anyone who dares to dream and follows their dream is brave in our eyes. Although her life was cut shot tragically, Kalpana Chawla is truly a heroic figure and idol to many girls who dream to go into space. Her work with NASA landed her the honour of being part of a six-member crew mission to space, ill-fated though. With umpteen honours heaped on her, Kalpana will be remembered as one very commendable Indian woman.

    Indira Gandhi: The first woman Prime Minister in the country and the longest serving woman Prime Minister in the world, Indira Gandhi is a woman of substance. Her political reign did have its rough patches; however her administrative skills and foresight were her defining attributes. She strongly advocated ‘Garibi Hatao’ but mostly she will be remembered as the Iron Lady of Asia.

    Sonia Gandhi: That she embraced the politics of a foreign land after the controversial family she married into and the unfortunate assassination of her husband, brave is an understatement for a woman like Sonia Gandhi. Her refusal to accept the Prime Ministerial post her husband's death and after the 2004 elections was widely appreciated, as was her Austerity Drive for her party MPs in 2009.

    Kiran Bedi: Her short-cropped hair is like a symbol for resistance in a country where crime and corruption are rampant. She is Kiran Bedi, India’s first woman police officer. This tough lady has worked in the narcotics control department and not to mention traffic control and prison management! She is also an advisor for United Nations peacekeeping operations. Her fearless approach has contributed greatly to policing and prison reforms.

    Mukti Datta: A social worker who has done wonders for not just the environment, but has changed the lives of several women in the Kumaon region of North India, Mukti Datta is a woman with grit. She took up the healthcare of an entire village and embarked on a journey that changed the face of women in Kumaon. We are proud of her and so are those whose lives she has touched.

    Women Freedom fighters of India: Sarojini Naidu, Kasturba Gandhi, Kamla Nehru, Vijayalaxmi Pandit, Annie Besant and Jhansi, these are just some of the remarkable women who stepped up and fought for their country against all odds. Their saga of bravery will be remembered through not just history text books, but through the freedom we enjoy as an independent country everyday.

    Shanti Tigga: A mother of two that to, Shanti Tigga is India’s first woman combat soldier! At 35, she joined the 969 Railway Engineer Regiment of India's Territorial Army. Tigga, we hear, exceeded all physical tasks including completing a 50 meter run in 12 seconds. Talk about true grit!
