Nirmala Sitharaman: Profile, Husband, Age and Daughter

Nirmala Sitharaman is the first full time Finance Minister of India. She was also the first full time Defense Minister. The appointment of a low profile woman on such a responsible position surprised many. The times are not easy as India has just come out of two months long border controversy with China. The possible escalation of North Korea problem can create a major headache. And, the procurement issues will always be there. In this scenario, this appointment shows huge trust that Modi has for Nirmala. It is more than just finding a face from South India and a case of women empowerment in India.


Nirmala is known for her ability to articulate a nuanced issue is expected to deliver and justify the trust shown on her.

The journey of Nirmala is quite interesting. Starting from a middle class family in Trichirapalli, she rose to the current position on her own. She is a self made woman. She is also new to the world of politics.
