There was a time in India when women were expected to be minding the children at home and it was men who used to call the shots. Lack of education, Lack of opportunities and impractical old customs in the male dominated society should be blamed for it. Situation has taken a dramatic turn. Women now command a very impressive CV and have made a place for themselves in most of important positions. It is honour to mention them.
Ektaa Kapoor-- Doesn't need any introduction. She is the undisputed Queen of TV
Nirupama Rao--India‘s Foreign secretary with an excellent record.
Durba Banerjee--she is 1st commercial Pilot of India.
Santosh Yadav-- 1st woman mountaineer to reach Mt Everest.
Kiran Bedi-1st IPS officer with an enviable success record in whatever she has undertaken.
Leila Seth--1St Chief justice of a High Court (HP)
Chanda Kochar--Managing director,ICICI Bank ltd.

Credit also goes to those who are manning the household as that is the most difficult job for the wife/mother.

I personally salute all the women who have and are making a position for themselves.
