  • Lata Mangeshkar
    The Bharat Ratna awardee is a living legend who has lent her golden voice to over a thousand songs.
  • Madhubala

  • Mother Teresa
    It was because of her love and dedication that the diseased and the destitute got a new life.

  • Sarla Thakral
    How many of you know about India’s first lady pilot Sarla Thakral? It was in 1936, that she first entered the cockpit of the Gypsy Moth and flew it without any complications. She was just 21 when she achieved that feat!
  • Mary Kom
    Magnificent Mary, as she is fondly called, will inspire millions of women to overcome hurdles and achieve what they truly desire.

    The ‘Iron Lady of Manipur’ is the world’s longest hunger striker. She has relentlessly fought for the cause of Malom Massacre, where she has demanded the repeal of the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act, 1958, that gives a carte blanche to the security forces while combating insurgents.
