Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated on Saturday that the world is observing how Indian women are projecting Nari Shakti and demonstrating their strength in every industry. A day earlier, women commanded attention at the 75th Republic Day parade, with a large number of women participating in the flypast, mechanized columns, marching contingents, bands, and cultural show, among other aspects of the country’s largest ceremonial event.

“Nari Shakti” received special recognition at the 75th Republic Day procession on Kartavya Path. Speaking at the annual National Cadet Corps (NCC) rally at the Cariappa parade field in Delhi Cantt, the PM remarked, “We have opened up opportunities for daughters in sectors where their entry was previously restricted or limited.”

He emphasized the role that women have played in a variety of industries, including as the armed services, the nation’s space program, start-ups, banking, and insurance. Speaking on the opening of frontline jobs in the military to women, including command roles, combat posts, and permanent commission, the PM stated that the government has reduced barriers to women’s entry in several fields. “The number of women serving in the armed forces is steadily rising, whether they are fighter pilots or annexers,” he stated.

For the first time, an all-women tri-service contingent headed by women officers participated in the Republic Day parade. The group was made up of Agniveers, who were recruited under the Agnipath initiative for short-term work in persons below officer level cadre. The amazing flypast featured 15 female pilots as well, six of them were combat pilots. They operated helicopters, Sukhoi-30s, and Rafales.

Instead of being marginalized, women in uniform are now given prominent responsibilities that are comparable to those held by males.

80% of the events of the parade were led by women, including the 1,500-woman Vande Bharatam cultural spectacle and the 112 women artists who opened the march by performing a range of Indian musical instruments from around the nation. Major Saumya Shukla, a female officer, also raised the national flag upon President Droupadi Murmu’s arrival, to the thunderous sound of a 21-gun salute.

According to the PM, states are being urged to hire more women for the police force, as the number of women in Central Armed Police Forces has more than quadrupled over the past ten years. As special guests, around 400 sarpanchs of “vibrant villages” and about 100 women from various self-help groups across the nation joined the NCC event.

The government’s dynamic village initiative, which spans parts of Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim, and Ladakh, aims to fully develop a number of selected villages along the nation’s northern border with China.

“A nation’s talent pool expands enormously when it affords equal opportunities to its talented sons and daughters,” Modi stated.

He exhorted the young people to take advantage of the opportunities that Digital India offers.

India’s digital economy has grown over the last ten years into a new source of strength for our young people. Large-scale initiatives for entrepreneurship, job creation, and skill development have also been undertaken in every industry.

He remarked, “This transformative era, the next 25 years, will not only witness the creation of a developed India but will primarily benefit the youth.” He was articulating his vision for India’s youth and their role in creating the country’s future. Young people like you will be the largest beneficiaries of this age. You will all need to make it a point to always pursue greatness.
