MAHARANI GAYATRI DEVI – Born into the royal family of Cooch Behar to Raja Jitendra Narayan and Rani Indira Devi, she was raised in opulence, surrounded by luxury and attended by a retinue of servants in a grand palace. However, their privileged life came to an abrupt halt when their titles were stripped following India’s independence and the abolition of princely states.

Undeterred by this upheaval, she transitioned into a highly successful political career. She contested the 1962 general election in independent India and achieved a resounding victory, earning her a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for the margin of her win. Once in the public eye, she dedicated herself to social causes, notably working to abolish the practice of purdah and promoting girls’ education in Rajasthan.

Her legacy extends beyond her beauty and grace, defining her as the epitome of beauty with a heart of gold. Her commitment to public service and her efforts to bring about positive change in society continue to inspire generations.
