“Don’t get bogged down by the notion of limits, there aren’t any” is the quote by Sunita Williams, the very famous female American Astronaut of Indian origin who is also the recipient of various prestigious awards like the Padma Bhushan & Medal “For Merit in Space Exploration” by Russia.
The position and status of women all over the world has risen incredibly in the 20th century. The credit goes to the education which has become the right and ideal channel for awakening and promoting the retention of constitutionally guaranteed gender equality on all fronts.
The number of women are increasing and gradually seen marching into domains which were previously reserved for males (police, navy, astronauts, pilots, chartered accountants, authors, journalists, air-force, commandos). The recent examples of Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman our First Female Union Minister for Defence, Govt. of India and first-ever woman navy pilot, Ms. Shubhangi Swaroop are the most motivating example for women of India today. In spite of their increasing numbers in every field, women still remain perhaps the world’s most underutilized resources.
