Women in Indian Army
Women in Indian Army have always proved their mettle when it comes to handling crisis situations.
 Women in Indian ArmyIn the contemporary India the strength of women in Indian army is on a rise. The women in India have always played an active role when it comes to safeguarding the nation. But organising women into an army was, probably, done for the first time by Subhash Chandra Bose. The women in Indian National Army (INA) fought for their country's independence along with their male counterparts. Since then Indian women have never backed out while fighting for their nation.

The tales of bravery relating to women date back to ancient India. For instance, Rani Lakshmibai was a fearless warrior who fought till the end for the security and interest of her subjects. There are several tales pertaining to North Indian women who have said to fought for their kingdoms unflinchingly. Even after ages such undaunted spirits are still found in Indian women.

With passing time more and more women are turning up to join the defence forces. The young women in Indian army are spirited, dynamic, courageous and undeterred. Besides flying fighter jets, pulling the trigger as and when required, fighting with the foes single handedly, the women in Indian army are often part of the medical teams too. The names of Captain Manul Singh, Lieutenant Ramandeep, belonging to Jalandhar in Punjab further adds to the glory of Indian army in recognising the potency and caliber of Indian women.
