President Certificate of First Ladies Poker

President of India to Honour 10 ‘First Ladies’ Today

by GS Admin Posted on 20 Jan, 2018

On Saturday, 20th January 2018, 112 Indian women will be honoured by the President of India for being the first women in their respective fields. These ‘first ladies’ have excelled in areas that have always been considered as male-dominated ones and Indian President Ram Nath Kovind has recognized the efforts of these women.

These 112 women have battled through various circumstances and have become masters of their professions, which has also inspired many women to follow in their footsteps. For this, they will be felicitated with the prestigious ‘Women’s Achievers Awards’.

The list of women to be awarded was released last year and among them was Indian professional poker player and animal rights activist Muskan Sethi. Being recognized as a rising star by the Global Poker League (GPL), Sethi was the first female poker pro from India; she has over $44,000 in live poker earnings and over $115,000 in online poker earnings. Sethi being honoured with this award will not only be a proud moment for her, but will also be a boost for the game of poker in India.

Sethi and the other women were recognized for these women’s achievers awards at the initiative of Union Women and Child Development Minister, Maneka Gandhi, in October 2017. Along with Sethi, other achievers who will be felicitated include India’s first women fire-fighter, first female merchant navy captain, first woman to manage a crematorium, first women fighter pilots, first female bartender, first woman to reach Antarctica, first woman commando trainer and many more.

Being felicitated by the President of India with such a prestigious award is something that all these women will be exceedingly proud of, and none of them are going to forget this day any time soon. The ceremony will take place at the Rashtrapati Bhawan in New Delhi, India.
