The first female Defence Minister of India after Indira Gandhi, Nirmala Sitharaman is a true inspiration for women all over the world. Here are 4 things you can learn lady of the hour:

1. Clarity

Even when the entire Parliament was resonating with hoots of leaders in opposition, Sitharaman didn't lose her calm and took her time to explain the situation to everyone present in the house.

2. Leadership

Taking the onus of responsibility while addressing the concerns of subordinates is what a true leader stands for and Sitharaman has gracefully dealt with the complaints that have come her way like one.

3. Respect Your Opponents

Rafale deal has been a point of controversy for a very long time. The opponent has been slandering the ruling party publically but the Defence Minister never said back anything until the matter was brought to parliament. This shows her respect for the opponents.

4. Never Back Down Attitude

The entire Rafale fiasco has proved that Nirmala Sitharaman is not a lady to bow down easily. Be it the opposition targeting the deal or HAL Staff Union challenging her authority, she has fiercely responded every time with grace.
