Here are some recent ground-breaking achievements by women that make this slogan so apt.
ISRO’s moon mission is one of the most ambitious space missions India has ever launched; a testament to the brilliance, dedication and grit of our scientists. The team led by M Vanitha and Ritu Karidhal is the perfect embodiment of the belief ‘Main Kuch Bhi Kar Sakti Hoon’. Exploration of the moon was once only a distant dream, but could very well be a reality in the near future. Chandrayaan-2 is one critical step in India’s space odyssey.
