In April 2012, in a land­slide vic­tory, Aung San Suu Kyi, 66, was elected to the Myan­mar Par­lia­ment af­ter her party, won nearly ev­ery seat in the by-polls. INI­TI­A­TION: In 1988, when Burma was in the mid­dle of po­lit­i­cal up­heaval, Suu Kyi was in Ran­goon to visit her mother. The daugh­ter of the coun­try’s in­de­pen­dence hero, Gen­eral Aung San said she couldn’t re­main “in­dif­fer­ent”. WHY WE CARE: This lady has been fight­ing hard to bring democ­racy to mil­i­tary-ruled Burma, a coun­try of strate­gic im­por­tance to In­dia.
