Meira Kumar:    Woman Of The Elements

Meira Kumar Speaker,Lok Sabha;  Erstwhile Minister, Social Justice and Empowerment;  Erstwhile Officer,Indian Foreign Services;  Winner of Lok Sabha elections,from 3 states;  Leader,Conference against racism,racial discrimination,xenophobia and related intolerance;  Leader, Indian delegation to Detroit,USA for Conference on Democracy;  Leader,Congress Party Delegation to Sweden for Socialist International Women’s Conference;  Member,Indian Parliamentary Group;  Member,Inter-Parliamentary Union,Supreme Court Bar Association; Rifle Shooter;  Poet and Editor;  Equestrian.

  Empowerment is about belief: in yourself, in principles and in ideals. It is only through empowerment that social justice can be wrought. Woman of the Elements seeks to empower women – by bringing faith in their own selves, their strengths and their inherently positive qualities. I appreciate its courage, attitude and its flowing, lucid style.

It is a book to be read by every woman, for when a woman empowers herself, she allows no-one the right to discriminate against her, abuse her or violate her in any way. It is her strong sense of self then, that guide the attitude and behaviour of others towards her.

As the Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment, as a woman and as a writer, I commend Woman of the Elements and Rashmi Anand for their beliefs and courage of conviction.

- Meira Kumar
