Yes, Ma’am Supreme Commander! – First in India’s 60 year history India is all set to get a Female President, though it had a female prime minister twice, I guess, having a female president is slightly different as Hindustantimes, one of the top two newspapers in India reported
The last male bastion — the position of supreme commander of India’s armed forces — will fall if UPA candidate Pratibha Patil makes it to Rashtrapati Bhavan. But the generals are fine with snapping out crisp salutes to her.
Army chief General JJ Singh told Hindustan Times: “As a nation, we have always been open to women holding the highest offices. We have had a woman prime minister and now we are likely to get a woman president. It will be a great honour for us to serve whoever is appointed the supreme commander.”
