Which female personality would you like to see on Indian currency?

Last updated on: April 22, 2016 14:00 IST

Do you think it would be a good idea to have an Indian woman on our currency notes?

On Wednesday April 20, the US treasury secretary Jacob J Lew made a historic announcement -- he suggested that the American currency would soon replace the image of Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill with Harriet Tubman, a former slave and abolitionist.

Lew further added that the $5 and $10 dollar notes, too, would have women and civil rights leaders.

The move, we think, is inspiring to say the least.

Do you think India should follow suit?

And if the same were to happen in India, who do you think would fit the bill?
