Regardless of your political affiliations, Smriti Irani’s journey from tele serials to becoming Information & Broadcasting Minister, is inspiring.
“Khudi ko kar buland itna ki, ki khuda bande se ye pooche, bata teri raza kya hai.” – Allama Iqbal
This is a fact – people who are unique in their efforts, unique in their personality and who have proved that it’s not the physical appearance but their efforts, their determination and the spirit of never giving up which leads you to stand somewhere in a society – people with this spirit have always created history.
To me, a person who has paved the way, who has been an inspiration for women and proved that it’s nothing but your efforts and your spirit that will help you to achieve your goal, that help you achieve something in your life…is none other than our Information & Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani…whose entire life is an inspiration for me.
Smriti Irani wanted to become an Air hostess, but due to the physical appearance criteria she got rejected. She didn’t give up and started her career from McDonald’s on a small salary. No work is small or big – it’s only our perception and our views that makes it valuable or worthless.
After that she tried hard, took a lot of effort and finally started her career in acting with the television serials made by Balaji Telefilms production house. Her most popular serial which has created a historic record in was Kyunki Saas Bhi kabhi bahu thi in which she got a lead role. This serial made her so famous that people use to call her Tulsi and became so attached to her that they never used to miss a single episode of this serial. She acted in many other serials but didn’t stop there. Her continuous efforts and hard work led her to politics, post which she joined the BJP and started her career in politics.
She started with becoming a member of the Rajya Sabha and after that she became Human Resources & Development Minister, Textile minister and now she is Information & Broadcasting Minister..
Smriti Irani is an example for all the women with the spirit of doing something in life on your own, with a Success Mantra. Every person has to go through failure to achieve their ultimate aims in life, she is a true example of that.
