Sushma Swaraj, Kangana Ranaut, PV Sindhu And 26 Other Women Receive Padma Awards From President Ram Nath Kovind

November 08, 2021 | by Ritu Sanghvi

Women in India in recent times have created nothing short of history. I mean, women for the most part have been deprived of opportunities and seeing them fighting their way through all the misogyny and patriarchal notions and coming out as a winner, the feeling is something else. In fact, for quite a while, women were even deprived of recognition for their hard work. They have been taken for granted for so long – whether it be housewives or women in any other fields – that it is refreshing to see when a woman actually gets recognized for her efforts. Yep, I’m talking about the Padma Awards 2020 where 29 women – including the late Sushma Swaraj, PV Sindhu, Kangana Ranaut, and others – from around the country not only got appreciated for their efforts but also were recognized for their hard work and dedication. 

President of India, Ram Nath Kovind presented 119 Padma Awards in total today, November 8, 2021. Out of the 119 awardees, 29 of them were women, including Kangana Ranaut, PV Sindhu, the late Sushma Swaraj, Ekta Kapoor, and others who have excelled in their field and brought about a change with their work.

I feel so honoured and blessed to be living in a time with such dedicated and hard-working women. Watching women like Sushma Swaraj, Rani Rampal, Kangana Ranaut, and many others getting appreciated for their hard work is a very special feeling that is very difficult to put in words. These women have been a guiding light and source of inspiration for many young girls who are passionate about their work.
