Today marks the 15th death anniversary of one of India's legendary female icons - Kalpana Chawla. She was the first woman astronaut of Indian origin and died in a space shuttle on 1st February 2003, minutes away from her landing. But with her hard work, determination, and courage, Kalpana Chawla inspired an entire generation of girls to follow their dreams. Her famous words still resonate in our ears, "Nothing is impossible for women if they have a strong will," and we bet nobody would disagree with that.
A conversation Kalpana Chawla had with the Indian Prime Minister of that time, Mr. I.K Gujral, has been doing the rounds on the Internet today and it would be an understatement to call this conversation heartbreaking. Hear the conversation here and join us while we reminisce the inspiring legend she was and will always be.
