A doctor, an MBA, 7th-degree black belt holder, a combat shooting instructor, a firefighter, a scuba diver & a medalist in rock climbing! Probably words are not enough to describe the qualifications and achievements of Dr. Seema. She is truly a Wonder Woman.
There are many ways to define this Indian wonder woman. She is training Indian elite forces since last 20 years, without asking for any compensation.
She has trained around 15000 soldiers in modern close quarter battle along with her husband Major Deepak Rao and the couple doesn’t charge any amount for the training!
A Mrs. India Pageant finalist, Rao is a certified doctor in conventional medicine along with an MBA is crisis management.
She is one of the few women authorized to teach Jeet Kune Do, a martial art form developed by Bruce Lee in the whole world.
She has suffered multiple injuries during training including a vertebral fracture and a severe head injury and doesn’t have her own kid. But she has an adopted beautiful baby girl.
Girls are usually perceived as timid, damsels always in distress.
This lady who has achieved Presidential Rank Honour for battle training the Indian Army proves to the world every day that women are ferocious, aggressive and strong.
They are warriors, quite literally!
Ever since a girl is born she is fighting. Fighting with the world and fighting within, fighting rigid notions, boundaries, sexism, juggling work and home and so many insecurities. It never stops.
Dr. Seema Rao is truly punching stereotypes on its face, kicking society’s preconceived notions hard in the shin and powering up every day.
