The Minister doesn’t stop at helping out Indians alone, she stands for the thought of ‘India’, the country, the tricolour and everything associated with it.

Respecting the wishes of our elders

Kantaben Shah, residing with her son in Talsa, Oklahoma as an American citizen was sent to India by her younger son with an expired visa that ended on Aug 15th 2016.

When Sushma Swaraj read about it, she responded back with assurance thus facilitating Kantaben ji to fulfil her wish to stay in Ahmedabad in the last leg of her life.

The case of the disabled daughters

A petition was filed by Subbalakshmi, a 70 year-old mother of 2 disabled daughters for facilitating their passport generation so that they can stay with their brothers in the US who would be able to take care of them. This tweet tells us so much about Sushma ji’s love for daughters.

Helping daughters from Pakistan reach home

Just after joining back to office after a tough kidney transplantation surgery, Miss Swaraj stunned hatemongers by a warm gesture towards a convoy of Pakistani girls who came to Chandigarh to participate in the Global Youth Festival 2016. Swaraj touched the hearts of the Indian janta with her heart-warming tweet:

Bashing unsolicited requests of an Indian Mard

Recently, a man apparently requested to Sushma ma’am for help with his wife’s passport to which she replied:

This made a techie husband in Pune send out a note to Swaraj’s Twitter feed to give him the same benefit too – that of ending his ‘banwas’. But Sushma ji’s reply was unabashedly bold, just the way unsolicited requests should be dealt with.

All of these incidents have shown us how zealous her compassion is and how a person of this stature can utilize power to the good society expects from them!

We’re totally inspired and we do wish this rocker of a parliamentarian, a very happy birthday and equally awesome life ahead!
