Women are flying high where the sky is not the limit. In India, women’s development and their contribution in every field are incredible and applauded. If we go to our ancient history, we can find strong women like Sita from Ramayana, Draupadi from Mahabharata, Razia Sultana, Rani Laxmi Bai. If we come to modern times women like Kiran Bedi, Kalpana Chawla, Captain Prem Mathur Sarojini Naidu, Sania Mirza, Deepika Padukone, and lots more inspired us in many ways that if you can dream, you can achieve success. 

Today, let us remember the brave souls who painted the independent color of bravery in India with a message to be brave, fearless and strong.


Draupadi: From the tales of Mahabharata, we can define Draupadi as a strong and confident woman. She knows what she wants. At an age of Mahabharata, where people were so orthodox, we were bold enough to befriend Krishna to whom she discloses all her secrets and believed him. Moreover, she has her mind and was conscious of her rights.

Sita: When we talk about Sita, her tragic death reminds us how strong she was. When Sita, as a kid picked up the Shiv Dhanush, it resembled that she is not only physically strong but also displayed her mental and physical strength.

Nowadays, we appreciate single mothers but back at that time, Sita single-handedly raised her sons Lava and Kusha.

Radha: Radha is the goddess of love, tenderness, compassion, and devotion. She never got afraid to express her love for Krishna. Radha loved Krishna for her entire life, knowing society’s rigid thoughts. She dedicated her whole life to Krishna regardless of society’s remarks.
