The title was given by Foreign Affairs magazine, which named 15 ‘Global Thinkers’ of the year 2016 and had other notable names like Hillary Clinton, Angela Merkel and Justin Trudeau also present on the list.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was one of the first people to congratulate Swaraj for the feat and said that he was ‘very proud’ to see her on the list.

 




Swaraj, who recently underwent a kidney transplant surgery at Delhi’s AIIMS hospital, has been working tirelessly since she took the Foreign Ministry office back in 2013.

Over the years she has not only responded to the tweets that are asking her for help but also taken prompt action to ensure that the person’s problems are resolved.

What is more, no problem is seen as too small or too big for her attention and she continues to work for the public via Twitter, even as she herself was in the hospital room under dialysis.

To her, it doesn’t matter if the person asking for help is Indian or non-Indian as she goes out of her way to help even those who are not of Indian origin or nationality.

Most notably, she was instrumental in coming to the rescue of 10,000 migrant workers who were going hungry in the Gulf and had been either being laid off  or were being illegally withheld over there.
