British India was crippled by child marriage and Sati. Most women were not allowed to study. But this girl battled all odds to become India's first woman doctor to practise medicine. Deliberately failed in her exams, insulted for treating 'untouchables', called a 'prostitute' in a magazine for serving the downtrodden. Despite outrage from society then, she cured lower-caste women and sex-workers. And treated patients till the end. Dr Kadambini Ganguly – a woman of many firsts, fought to change status quo at every step. Calcutta University, Calcutta Medical College were the first institutions to open doors for women, because she wasn't ready to hear 'no' for an answer. Watch her inspiring story.
