Pratibha Devisingh Patil

I might have as well put this post in the wonderful woman series, but I will not because I do not think she is all that wonderful. But she is one lucky lady. And I thank heavens for her luck. I feel good that she is so lucky so as to be the First Woman President of India. The lady is the typical Indian grandmother kind of lady and I somehow find it very interesting to see her travel all over the world, meeting all sorts of people and flying in Sukhois :). I like the whole idea. I almost relish it. If only she had been more substantial, I would be elated.

Now, I would like to tell you why I am writing a post suddenly about Pratibha Patil. Apart from the fact that it is her 75th birthday today, I saw a pic of her celebrating it with some special kids and it evoked some kind of appreciation for her from me. (Pic is taken from The Hindu)Pratibha Patil

The love and the tenderness with which she is feeding the kid can be seen and felt from the honest smile on her face. She seems really glad. And when I saw this pic I thought of other women in Politics, women from US and UK and other developed and white nations, and I was unable to imagine such honest care being put forward by any of those. They seen kind of artificial to me. I dont know. I just felt that this was a good pic and so I not only put it here but wrote a post about it.

Whew ! By the way, wish you a very very happy Birthday Miss President!!!
