To calm her curiosity and pursue her passion she linked herself with physics and attained her degree in physics and aerospace engineering from the University of Lucknow and IISC Bangalore respectively.

She has been awarded many awards and accolades like the young scientist Award and many more. A big round of applause to this BHARAT KI BETI.

She is an inspiration to all of them who underestimate the power and potential of a woman, and who question their capability and strength.

Time and again they have proved If they can be soft-hearted, gentle, and vulnerable, they can also be strong, confident, and independent.

If they can run a house, be multitasking, and manage everything single-handedly, they can also become an entrepreneur, own a company, become a world leader and make their way to Forbes’s top 50 women.

If they can make a home a heaven with her love and dedication, they are very much capable of bringing disharmony and imbalance through their apathy and ignorance.

They possess unlimited mental strength and are the powerhouse of resilience and tenacity.

They can do everything from raising children to flying an airplane.

Women from every facet of life are inspiring us in ways we may have never expected. Ritu Karidhal is certainly one among them.

She is an inspiration to those women who give up and believe that their world is confined inside the four walls of the house,

who think that thriving and succeeding in a male-dominated society is unattainable or like climbing a mountain.
