Durgavati was an Indian revolutionary and a freedom fighter. She was perhaps only woman revolutionary who took an active participation in armed revolution against the ruling British. She is best known for having accompanied Bhagat Singh on the train journey in which he made his escape in disguise after the Saunders killing.Since she was wife of another HSRA member Bhagwati Charan Vohra ,other members of HSRA referred her as ‘Bhabhi'( Elder brother’s wife) and became popular as “Durga Bhabhi” in Indian revolutionary circles.

#7 Brave, independent and unconventional…India’s first female photojournalist she was!
