Politics wasn’t my first career choice; I have always wanted to serve the nation: Bansuri Swaraj

The BJP leader credits her father, Swaraj Kaushal, a former Mizoram Governor, as the guiding force behind her academic and professional journey. Ms. Swaraj mentions that she once considered careers in filmmaking and journalism. “During that time, my father used to say that whatever you do, ensure it benefits the nation and keeps you grounded,” she recalls.

“This advice led me to pursue a career in law. Despite studying abroad, I always wanted to return home,” says Ms. Swaraj, who studied English Literature at the University of Warwick and later obtained a law degree from BPP Law School in London.

“I joined the BJP when the party was expanding its legal cell in Delhi. I had received a call from the partyasking me to join it. I took it as an instruction and followed it,” she adds.
