Draupadi Murmu Became talk of the town as soon as she was announced as the presidential candidate of the current ruling Bhartiya Janta Party. She is the first tribal woman who has become the president of india, Adding one more achievement in the list of India’s firsts. She used to teach students before entering the politics giving her an accredition of a politician who is well connected to the ground and knows what are the problems that people face in their daily lives.

Droupadi comes from the state of Orissa ,The area is also referred to as Utkala and is referenced in "Jana Gana Mana," the national song of India. The official language of Odisha is Odia, one of India's classical languages. The borders of contemporary Odisha overlap with those of the ancient kingdom of Kalinga, which was conquered by the Mauryan Emperor Ashoka in 261 BCE (and reclaimed from them by King Kharavela) and led to the Kalinga War. When Orissa Province, which included the Odia-speaking areas of Bihar and Orissa Province, was founded on 1 April 1936, the British Indian administration drew the boundaries of the present state of Odisha. April 1st is recognised as Utkala Dibasa.

She worked two jobs, one as a junior assistant in the irrigation division of the Government of Odisha and the other as an assistant professor at the Shri Aurobindo Integral Education and Research in Rairangpur. Murmu joined the Bharatiya Janata Party in 1997 and was appointed to the Rairangpur Nagar Panchayat council. She served as national vice president of the Scheduled Tribes Morcha of the Bharathiya Janata Party. During the Bhartiya Janata Party and Biju Janata Dal coalition government in Odisha, she held the positions of Minister of State with Independent Charge for Fisheries and Animal Resources Development from August 6, 2002 to May 16, 2004, and for Commerce and Transport from March 6, 2000 to August 6, 2002. With all of these accomplishments and a track record to back her up, she was the ideal candidate for the position of president of the NDA coalition since her tribal heritage and gender will help the party position itself as one that supports women and their rights. Due to the fact that she represents a sizable portion of those parties' support bases in Bihar, Jharkhand, and tribal parties, her candidacy may also increase the likelihood of cross-voting from those groups. Electricity was introduced to her community for the first time following the announcement of her candidacy.

Droupadi Murmu faced a lot of challenges in the starting phase of her political career but she emerged victorious over them as her goal was clear and that was to work for the betterment of people in and around her district. She suffered from a problem of less funds being allotted from the governments side and despite that she managed to bring developments to the microneeds of people which brought in a major change in the live of local people. And the cherry on the top being she does not have any charges of corruption against 

India has embarked on a new journey as Draupadi Murmu Becomes Madam President, Coming from such a background and starting from 0 she has managed to reach the top position in the hierarchy of the entire country of India. She is being seen as a role model for the girls out there and the tribals who have always felt that their voices were left unheard and their demands unseen. She managed to get their just on the basis of her sheer hard work and her exemplary skills on the ground with people. People on her local constituency state that Draupadi ji is the politician who can be seen with common people and not like others who sit in their luxury cars and live a lifestyle which maximum if Indians can only dream of. The story of her success is not just fascinating but also makes us realize that there is way for everything if you put in right of amount of everything such as hardwork, patience and perseverance she kept on working for people tirelessly and made sure that the highest post in the country will witness her becoming the president of India. Despite being from a tribal background and being a women she faced a lot of challenges in terms of how the society treats her.

India has high hopes from her as she is a non nonsense leader and makes sure that work is always kept the first priority. And she can be called a true patriot in every senses as her passion to serve the nation can also be seen from the early days of her career when she started to teach children and when she grew acroos the political spectrums and became the synonym of good leadership.
