  1. Such a wonderful post! I had no idea such a job even existed before reading the post, so adventurous and completely different and world apart from the rest of us. Hats off to Rathi

  2. Wonderful to know how far women are going to break stereotypes, Parul. Thanks for sharing this – I had no idea that there were Indian seapersons (is that what we could call them?)

    This is so inspiring! I wish I was half as courageous as Rathi! Such posts only make us realize how lucky we are and how grateful we should be for the ones who are guarding us and are ensuring our safety, staying away from their families!

    What a wonderful choice of career! Women need to be strong, follow their passions and do whatever they want. With or without support.

    I love this series of yours Parul. I know that you are a strong woman and I love the fact that you are bringing more such women in focus 🙂

    Hip Hip Hurray, Rathi’s story is inspiring for all women and gives us the confirmation that women are today also joining non traditional careers such as marine and sea. Thanks to you for bringing her story to us!

    Your ‘Women at work’ posts are always so inspiring and encouraging, Parul! Each time I visit your blog to read these posts, I come back feeling motivated to do my best for the life I have been blessed with!
    Thanks to women like Rathi, people will be compelled to look at women as not just “the fairer sex”, but also the stronger sex!

  20. Kala Ravi says:

    Indeed inspiring! We do look at women in roles that we find so adventurous like an FG second officer or a pilot but it takes tremendous grit to pull it off day in and day out! Hats off to Rathi! Thanks for introducing us to yet another inspiring Woman at Work Parul!
