Shanti Sethi is an American of Indian descent but that’s not what sets her apart from the rest of the people of Indian origin. The fact that she is the first female commander of U.S. Warship USS Decatur is what distinguishes her. Sethi who has been serving in the U.S. Navy since 1994, was earlier deployed in the Arabian Gulf during 2001.
Having graduated from Norwich University with a degree in international affairs, she has the Meritorious Service Medal, Navy Commendation Medal and the Navy Achievement Medal to her credit. A native of Nevada, the much-decorated officer has also served as a navigator onboard USS Hopper.
Alas, even as women in India are slowly but steadily trying to make a place for themselves in the Indian armed forces, will they ever get the chance to prove their mettle?

Our Army, Air Force and Navy ought to learn a lesson from this and provide more opportunities to women in the Indian forces to reach their full potential. If PIO Shanti Sethi has been successful, so can the women in the nation. So many women in our country have literally slogged and rendered even better services to the society but sadly, none of their efforts have ever been acknowledged!

Be it Indra Noori or Indra Gandhi, over the years, women have proved that they are no less than men in any field.

Why doesn’t Sethi join the Indian Navy since she has Indian roots? With her vast experience and skill-set, she would definitely prove to be an asset to our country.

The condition of Indian armed forces is miserable, particularly when it comes to women. The fact remains that our Indian society is by-and-large a predominantly male society where men just can’t stand a women in power. Even today, when Indian claims to be at par with the developing nations of the world, women are still given the glass ceiling treatment when they attempt to rise above their male counterparts, be it in the army or the corporate world.
