"A glorious chapter in Indian politics comes to an end"

A powerful orator, an easily-accessible external affairs minister and a politician of many firsts, Sushma Swaraj was a loyal BJP soldier who was always ready to face a challenge.

WE will always remember you as the daredevil woman minister with a big red bindi on her forehead, hair tied in a bun, draped in humble sarees worn with a sleeveless jacket partly hidden underneath the palloo.

Epitome of simplicity and kindness, you showed us that there's world beyond those formidable walls of the Centre and bulky bodyguards...the people.

India mourns the loss of its Mother... #RIPSushmaSwaraj
