Valiant Women of India - Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit & Kanaklata Barua
As the daughter of Motilal Nehru, Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit was introduced to many big names in the freedom struggle, early in life. This went on to shape her life as an activist and later as a politician and diplomat, representing a newly-independent India. On the other hand, when the Mahatma's call to 'Do or Die' reached the small town of Borangbari in Assam, 17-year-old Kanaklata Barua was fearless enough to live up to the words in its truest sense. Even if their stories are different, these women had the same vision for India. The stories of such lesser-known heroines fill us with pride for our nation's past.
