Image- A heartstoppingly beautiful Nirupama Rao, then Nirupama Menon. Those melting brown eyes have stared some of India’s sneakiest frenemies down- tough nut diplomats from the US and China. In my favourite interview of her, her delicate features set, radiating an elegant brand of strength, she tells her white male interviewer- “The business of diplomacy is business.” Her Twitter Bio says it all: ‘Former Indian Foreign Secretary, Ambassador to the U.S & China. Reject extremes, bigotry, rabble rousing. Let’s sweat in peace, not bleed in war. Peace is my dream.’ PS: She still has amazing hair. Let the goddess worship begin.
