Ever since she became the HRD Minister and entered BJP Government, some have praised her & some criticized her but she never gave up.
From being an Eminent Actor to a youngest Minister as a Politician in BJP Government, there are major life lessons that we all can learn from this Brave Lady.
1) Patience & Determination are Essential-
Smriti Irani comes from a lower middle class family and is the eldest of three sisters. Since her young day she supported and took care of her family. Since an early age she has always tried to take the load off her parents shoulders by helping them manage the house.
Fulfilling her responsibilities has always been her priority. Her dream was to become an IAS offocer or journalist but those dreams couldn’t come true. Today all journalists wait for a chance to get to speak with her and get her comments. It’s her patience and dedication that has given her well – deserved success.
2) Hard work pays off always-
Stardom and Success doesn’t come overnight, neither is the attainment of it is easy and Smriti Irani is a perfect example of it.
Before becoming the Television Sensation, she has struggled & worked at Mc Donald’s Bandra, Mumbai. She use to clean stairs and mop the floor. Meanwhile she auditioned for various Tv serials and waited for an opportunity. Her hard work finally paid off when she bagged the role of “Tulsi” in the very famous serial of Ekta kapoor’s Balaji production ” kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi”.
3) Celebrate Diversity-
Smriti Irani comes from a family which truly shows the essence of our country, our diversity in culture. Her father being Punjabi- Maharastrian & her mother being a Bengali- Assamese and her husband being Parsi, its true to say that she understands the nature and diversity of this country and is proud of it. No matter which part of the country you belong to, No matter what your mother tongue is, at the end of the day you are an Indian, you sing the same national anthem as do 1.252 billion other people. Be proud to be the citizen of the largest democracy in the world.
4) Speak your Mind, Be Confident & Believe in Yourself & be Just-
Taking the latest example of Smriti Irani’s Speech in the Lok Sabha, those who have seen and heard the speech , you must have seen the way she spoke in front of opposition. She presented documents, facts and did not fear anyone. She falsified all the allegations put on her by her by providing evidence. While other Politicians gave shockingly unbelievable comments on rape cases in our country, she always advocated Capital punishments for rapists.
5) Education is not everything in life-
Many people have commented on her completely as a Cabinet Minister but she proved everyone wrong. She dropped out of school to pursue her acting career. There is nothing wrong with it. She is the lady who believes in judging anyone according to his or her work as deeds not by his or her education.
6) Respect for Indian Armed forces
When General GD Bakshi couldn’t hold his tears back on national television. While people were busy debating a soldier was shedding tears while defending National Flag. Smriti Irani’s phone call came to GD Bakshi which makes us realize how thankless we are of the sacrifices soldiers make for our nation and for us Patriotism only comes on occasions. No nation can attain success and prosperity if it doesn’t have the basic respect & pride for its soldiers, its heroes and its saviours.
