Faces of India – 110

A lady police from Chandigarh, Punjab. The shot was taken from a moving vehicle and she definitely is not aware that she was shot at with a Canon! But I must admit that, it is officers like her who instill confidence in minds of lady solo travelers and also the general public.

I salute you Ma’am!

Faces of India, a series through which I intend to portray the various characters of my country whom I met during my travels. See more here.

  10. She is fabulous…great capture!!
    love your portraits.

  11. I'm glad to see there are female police in India! Is it as scary for women to travel in India as the North American media makes it sound?

    Bulls eye, Indrani 🙂 Officers like her do a brilliant job indeed, salute to all the great women of the world.

  22. Jiggyasa says:

    First Kudos to you for clicking such a fine picture on a moving vehicle, and second conveying such a fine message beautifully. loved it 🙂

  23. S. Anupam says:

    Perfect click with so beautiful message!

  24. Very nice picture, its always great to see lady officers and other ladies doing well in their professional lives because in India girls are discouraged if they want to study and make a big name for themselves. The paradox in Indian is that here we worship goddesses and on the other hand mistreat girls and by not allowing them freedom to get educated properly.

  25. Nice take at the right moment, reminds me of Shantala's image

  26. Respect for people in the uniform is always high but when you see a lady in uniform you feel a completely different sense of pride, its as if the achievement is your own.
