Annie Besant, née Wood (1 October 1847 – 20 September 1933) was a British socialist, theosophist, women's rights activist, writer and orator and supporter of Irish and Indian self-rule.
She also became involved in politics in India, joining the Indian National Congress. When World War I broke out in 1914, she helped launch the Home Rule League to campaign for democracy in India and dominion status within the Empire. This led to her election as president of the India National Congress in late 1917. Thus she became the first Women president of Indian national Congress.

Sarojini Naidu (1879–1949), also known by the sobriquet Nightingale of India, was a poet and politician. Naidu served as the first governor of the United Provinces of Agra and Oudh from 1947 to 1949. She was the first woman to become the governor of an Indian state. She was the second to become the president of the Indian National Congress in 1925 and the first woman in India to become the president of the Indian National Congress.

Kakatiya Dynasty The Kakatiya dynasty was a South Indian dynasty whose capital was Orugallu, now known as Warangal. It was eventually conquered by the Delhi Sultanate.

The demise of Kakatiya dynasty resulted in confusion and anarchy under alien rulers for sometime. Three new fledgeling kingdoms arose out of the ruins of the Kakatiya empire namely the Reddy kingdom, Padma Nayaka Velama kingdom and the great Vijayanagara Empire.
