ಲಕ್ಷ್ಮಿ ಸೆಹಗಲ್

Captain Laxmi Sehgal is one of the lion hearted women, India ever had. She picked up the Gun for the Indian National Army (INA) founded by Netaji Subash Chandra Bose and led it like a tigress for the struggle for Indian freedom.

Laxmi Sehgal was born in 1914 to a traditional Tamil family. She got her first patriotic lessons from her mother who was a member of the Congress herself. She completed her degree in medicine from the Madras Medical College and went to Singapore for a career as a doctor, however something very different was waiting for her.

Singapore at that time was ruled by British and they had to surrender when the Japanese invaded the country. Thousands of Indians were taken as prisoners. At this juncture, Netaji invited the Indian prisoners to join the INA and fight against the British. Laxmi was one of them and Netaji was impressed by her courage and asked her to lead the Rani Jhansi Regiment. She fought like a tigress against the British in the jungles of Burma.

Today octogenarian, Captain Laxmi Sehgal still has the same indomitable attitude and is a practicing Doctor in Kanpur. She is a major attraction to the seminars and conference and is still working for the betterment of the Society.
