Left- Indra Nooyi became the first woman CEO of Pepsi-Co in 2006.She is one of the most powerful women in the world.

Below- Arundhati Roy won the Booker Prize for her book"The God of Small Things". I love that book. Made me cry and laugh in a single sentence.

Below is a picture of girls in a rural school taken by my niece Mahima.

A 13 year old girl like this can 't go to school any more as she has to take care of her blind parents.She drives a cycle rickshaw to sustain her family. These are also the daughters of India.

Amazing - everyone of them.
One of the most amazing daughters of India is you my dear friend, your just not as famous as those you've named.

Ash said...

The last daughter you've featured....is the most beautiful of all!

the mother of this lot said...

I agree with Pat - India must be proud to have a daughter such as you Amrita!

Donetta said...

Oh what beautiful women indeed.

The last one is the diamond in the crown.

Dear Amrita,
that was a remarkable bouquet.
I also like Arundhati Roy. Her novel has been translated into Norwegian several years ago.
To be a bit shallow I might add that Indian women are so beautiful looking, the big, brown eyes, rich hair and enviable complexion.
Bet the heroine of thirteen also is blessed with the same good look in addition to being a lifesaver for her family.
I'll have to add her on my list of prayers.
Yours Felisol

ooooow I was thinking of womans day (yesterday March 8) But I was too busy to post a mail on my blog, I'm glad you did!

Zen Master said...

I agree with Pat about you.

I am glad that you shared these wonderful women.


I'm always happy to hear of women who are doing us all proud. I get so tired and disheartened by the females I see around me everyday.
