"Nari Shakti" displayed on 70th Republic day.The first time India displayed rising women power in its military forces.
Thousands of people including foreign dignitaries witnessed the 70th Republic Day celebrations at the Rajpath in New Delhi, where India showcased its military power including rising women power in the armed forces and cultural heritage. It was good to see as in the past it was not easy for women to get recruited in such places.
Lieutenant Bhavana Kasturi led all-male Army Service Corps (ASC) contingent during the Republic Day parade.
Kasturi is the first lady officer to lead an all-male contingent at the Republic Day parade.
Major Khushboo Kanwar, 30, and mother of a child, led the contingent of the Assam Rifles, the oldest paramilitary force in the country.
Women power was the main attraction this year's parade.
I have got a feeling now that India is developing in terms of gender equality which is essential for the growth of any country.
