Incredible India! We all are acquainted with this from the past decade; it is really coming into effect in the country itself. Yes, we often say that women are always home bound and not so much on the field. But, this time, it feels like there is some twist in the tale.
To which direction is the country going? To which path was our society heading? Is this the best gesture given to a woman to jump in the field and take actions? Yes, the country is moving forward where women are granted responsibilities of what a man used to take.
From chulah chowka (kitchen and home based works) to the war fields, women could be seen at every place which proves that they are no more less than men in any field . Really India is Developing! Now Women will take care of Defence & Foreign Affairs while Rajnath will stay at home taking care of all of us.
This time, the story is not about every home or every society, it is all about the Country itself! Let's have a jump into the vivid world of Indian Politics headed by our PM Mr. Narendranath Modi. It has been just a few hours when our Honorable Prime Minister has reshuffled the Cabinet Ministers and brought some interesting twists to the cabinet.
Nirmala Sitharaman is now the 2nd Woman Defense Minister after Indira Gandhi and Sushma Swaraj was already honored as the Foreign Minister of the Country. The twist in the tale is that Rajnath Singh will take care of home as he is the Home Minister of the Country.
Well! To most of the people, it might be fascinating on how both the woman share their responsibilities, while Rajnath Ji handles the Home Minister Position.
“Somebody who has come from a small town, grown into the party with all the support of the leadership, and if given such responsibility, it just makes you sometimes feel that cosmic grace is there. Otherwise, it is impossible,” Sitharaman said after taking the oath. It was way back in the year of 1975 and also in the year of 1980 when for the first time a woman was nominated as the Defense Minister of the country. It repeated back again on 2017 when Sitharaman has re-elected again.
Nirmala Sitharaman was born on 18th August 1959 in the Madurai District of Madras. She was the founder member of Pranava School in Hyderabad. She has completed her MA in Economics and Phd from JNU, New Dlhi. Sitharaman served at Price water house Coopers as a Senior Manager and later for the BBC World Service.
It is an instinctive move by the politicians of the country as they make their way to make it count more. Well, the reshuffle has indeed been one of the best things that women in the country could be hoping for. Well, the best part of all is that women in the country are indeed supported by everyone, and we feel proud of them.
She also worked as a sales girl in London while she got married to Parakala Prabhakar, who comes from a Political Background. Her mother-in-law was a Congress MLA in Andhra Pradesh, while her father-in-law was a Minister in the Andhra Pradesh Congress Govt in 1970s.
