Ruchira Kamboj, the diplomat who ensures India is not pushed around

She’s a straight talker. She makes sure India puts her best foot forward on the world stage. The country’s first woman permanent representative to the United Nations, Ruchira Kamboj, is always hitting headlines for the right reasons.
