Geeta Rani Sharma was a community leader, an activist, and a mother. In her early life, Geeta was the captain of her University of Delhi Field Hockey team during a time where women were harassed on the University’s bus system. Through her ability to mobilize her teammates, she held a protest where she and her team sat in front of the bus parking station to not allow busses to pass until they created a bus system specifically for women. Her activism stemmed from her understanding of what made her a strong, powerful, and resilient women. Being the eldest of five, she had to not only hold true to the standards of what being a South Asian women meant, but she pushed boundaries towards what she wanted it to mean. She became a mother on September 17, 1991, where she was dedicated to the excellence of her children. She fell ill to breast cancer, and lost her fight in March 2013. She was loved by the people around her, her community, and her family, often being called a light. Her legacy is found in her name “Rani” which means Queen in Hindi — she entered this world as a queen and left it as one too.
