Her name is often missed out on lists like these but damn I just felt a wee bit overawed reading all her achievements and awesome skills she has mastered !!!! The country’s first woman commando trainer, she has trained over 15,000 soldiers in close quarter battle. She is one of only 10 women in the world who are trained in Jeet Kune Do ( a form of martial arts)

These unsung superwomen all deserve a biopic of their own. Their stories go from being victims of abuse to breaking all shackles, they courageously continue to fight the evils of the society.

Reading about all the work they have done and are doing makes me feel so empowered.

Most of you might not know her name, but this sweet little 105-year-old woman has done wonders for the environment in India all by herself. She is renowned for her act of planting over 8,000 banyan trees over her lifetime. And her story goes like “she began planting trees because she and her husband were unable to bear children”, makes me just want to go and wrap her in a big hug.
