This reminds me of my niece Raisa who drives around Pune
looking like a Ninja sometimes, when she's all dressed in black
with a white dupatta.

lPhoolan Devi a.k.a. The Bandit Queen was a gangster
leader who was
captured, jailed, raped, released and later
elected to Indian Parliament.

A champion of women's rights, she was murdered in 2001 and
was the
subject of a biographical (non-Bollywood) film in 1994.
