From left to right: Janaki Ammal (1897-1984), a botanist who developed a sweeter type of sugarcane; Amrita Sher-Gil (1913-1941), a Hungarian-Indian artist who loved painting traditional Indian customs; and Kalpana Chawla, the first woman of Indian origin to go into space.

And they ended up writing a children’s book highlighting 51 women, past and present. It’s called The Dot That Went For A Walk.
