Indian women have been making news in all walks of life and this country has a lot to offer. Bharat Ratna Lata Mangeshkar, former Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj, Boxer Mary Kom are only to name a few from their respective walks of life to be admired by Indians. The consistent effort by the former MEA minister in offering help to Indians either overseas or inside the country has not gone amiss. Beauty pageant winners Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra-Jonas and Sushmita Sen have not only left a mark in the Indian cinema but have done splendidly well in Hollywood and have made their way into the business world.
