Warrior FireWomen



Fire on the mountain run,run,run

Everyone ran back yelling out in fear but she took altitude level of strength and lioness stamina to save lives inside the blazing heat. I'm feeling happy and proud to write about the shero PRIYA RAVICHANDRAN ,a woman firefighter from Tamilnadu. 



Many myths persist about a woman's physical strength to perform such kind of works. The reality is however is that most men can't do it either. Here lot of women have got their courageous shoes on to risk their life knowing that they are gonna miss and spend time away from friends and family. Possessing each day with mental character to wake up knowing that you have to risk your life. This job is selfless, with great skill and incredible sheroism. 

I would like to give a huge shout out and warm hug to PRIYA RAVICHANDRAN for marking her name in male dominated board and for kicking out those stereotype. She has made women proud becoming the first fire fighter in Tamilnadu.

PRIYA completed her bachelor's degree in corporate secretariatship in chennai and her masters ,M.Phil in sociology at jawaharlal Nehru University, Delhi. She completed her Divisional Officer course at National Fire Service College, Nagpur, with distinction and went training at Fire Service College, Moreton in Marsh,England. She is not only few women in the force but first woman Divisional Officer of India. She got her job order just 10 days after her daughter was born. With the support of family and senior officers at training facility she was permitted to stay with her infant daughter. A young mother who withstood all tough physical training with patience towards her passion has made her officer in August 2003. Her first posting was in Coimbatore in 2004 where she underwent many operations including fire breakage in cotton mill lasted for 7 hours. A temple structure that collapsed badly trapping a constructors for over two hours. Another major incident that took place on Pongal one of the most celebrated festivals in Tamilnadu. A fire during the festival season in a heritage building was something that was unexpected on night Jan15 2012. Priya immediately rushed to the spot. She entered the burning building risking her life along with her few colleagues to save innocent lives. The ceiling collapsed on them,Priya managed to get out but receiving 50℅ of burns. The fire engulfed a brave fireman. One of the incidents of fire that Priya has dealt in her career.

She was the first women in her department to receive the Anna medal for Bravery 2012. 

President's Award for gallantry 2013 from Chief Minister of Tamilnadu.

Femina Penn Sakthi Award 2013.

Award for Selfless Service in Search and Rescue Operation honoured by Chief Minister of Tamilnadu 2014.



A mother of two daughters and a caring wife,the Divisional Officer says "Women perform every task with utmost sincerity to fly with their own colors. More and more women must involve themselves to serve our nation and public. 

" Studies show women are biologically more likely to survive than men. Their haemoglobin level is generally low. Yet,they go about their day to day business. I will be happy to have women in my team," says Connaught Place fire station officer,Rajesh Shukla.

PRIYA RAVICHANDRAN is a terrible combatant who will motivate young aspirants to join the force. Let's rebuild and work by learning and hearing others motivation voice. It's just a tiny hole,let's drill deeper to a tunnel so that light travels. Let our future warriors give last breath of pure oxygen by planting saplings in our grave. 

Every women in the world is born with flaming fire in her heart. She knows when to burn down her hurdles,until then she trains up her mental strength to bang out firestorm shutting down the sun's blaze. That's why girls are super HOT every time. Don't dare to touch her. 

When a Greek pirate ship sails in to loot the wealth of the Cholas, it is brutally defeated by the navy and forced to pay a compensation. A payment that includes a twelve-year-old girl, Aremis. Check out this new historical novel Empire (http://bit.ly/DeviEmpire) with a warrior woman, Aremis at the heart of the novel.
