NEW DELHI: Union Minister Smriti Irani has recently lavished praise on Gauri Prasad Mahadik, the widow of Major Prasad Ganesh who died in a fire accident near the India-China border in 2017. Ms Mahadik had resigned from her job to serve in the Army as a tribute to her late husband.

Gauri Prasad Mahadik joined the Indian Army as a lieutenant in March this year after graduating from the Officers' Training Academy. Taking it to her Instagram page, Ms Irani hailed Ms Mahadik's action and described her as an example of the strength of Indian women.


'She survived when most crumble. A story I found online, makes me proud that she lived to tell the tale of the true potential of an Indian woman. If you ever see her, tell her & many like her - we are grateful for your service & sacrifice,'the minister wrote on her Instagram page. Ms Mahadik got married to Major Prasad in 2015.
