They are legends. Courageous, revolutionary, inspiring. Born in traditions that exalted womanhood but kept women from achieving their true potential, these women of India braved all odds to realise their dreams and ambitions. The Rani of Jhansi and the Rani of kittur defied the British. Rani Abbakka challenged successfully the might of the Portuguese. Sultana razia proved, in her brief reign, to be an excellent ruler and and able administrator. And Kalpana Chawla actually touched the stars she reached for.
