The Heroines Among Us

Artist Statement:

We are going to talk about the Heroines among us so I want to say that Indira Gandhi was our Heroines among us who is also a big role model for all of us. She was the first and, to date, only female Prime Minister of India. Indira Gandhi was the daughter of Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime minister of India. She served as prime minister from January 1966 to March 1977 and again from January 1980 until her assassination in October 1984, making her the second longest-serving Indian prime minister after her father. We salute to the work done by her great efforts towards her work for the Country India.
