Droupadi Murmu Will Be India’s Youngest & First President To Be Born After Independence
New Delhi: President-elect Droupadi Murmu brings with her many firsts to the country.
The unassuming politician who started public life as a councillor in Odisha will be written into history as India’s first tribal president and the second woman in the post.
At 64, the woman who will be India’s 15th president, taking over from Ram Nath Kovind, will also be the youngest and India’s first president to be born after Independence. She will be sworn in on July 25.
She is believed to be deeply spiritual and follows the Brahma Kumaris, a movement she embraced after she lost her husband, two sons, mother and brother in just six years between 2009-2015.
