Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman rings in her 62nd birthday today (18 August 2021).
The first full-time woman finance minister of India who was also the former Union Minister for Defence as well as Commerce Ministry has been quite an expressive person.
From being a Consultant at PwC to the Parliament, Sitharaman has won the confidence of the government and her peers. For the record, the Finance Minister in 2020 was considered more powerful than even Queen Elizabeth II. She ranked 41st on the Forbes Powerful Women index which was led by none other than German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Besides Sarees and quoting inspiring wisdom from Saint Thiruvalluvar during Budget days, there's more to Madam Nirmala Sitharaman. Here's a look at the ten inspiring avatars of the Finance Minister.
