Swaraj Kaushal Is The Man Who Stood Behind Sushma Swaraj As She Shone. India Needs More Secure Men Like Him
India witnessed a great loss earlier this week, on 6th of August when we lost a gem like Sushma Swaraj. The senior BJP leader, Sushma Swaraj who touched the nation with her generosity and remarkable promptness in handling foreign and external affairs, may have left Indians across the world with a heavy heart, but the heaviest of them all still stands to be of her husband – Swaraj Kaushal, the man behind the valiant Sushma Swaraj.

It is often quoted how there is always a woman behind every successful man. But in this tale, there seems to have been a strong, supportive and extremely understanding man behind the enigma that was Sushma Swaraj, who must be equally credited and celebrated for the rock he had been for her all these years. A brilliant supreme court lawyer himself, he crossed paths with Sushma back in the day while working on the case of George Fernandes during the the time of Emergency under the governance of Indira Gandhi.
Till date, Swaraj Kaushal has been okay to be relegated from the limelight, and is okay to be first identified as Sushma Swaraj’s husband. It takes a man completely secure with his masculinity to be unafraid of being the silent, uncelebrated force behind a woman of Sushma Swaraj’s stature. We celebrate him for in a nation that practically breathes toxic masculinity, it takes a lot of be a man okay with getting overshadowed.

His impeccable care and concern for Sushma had always been very genuine, as he continued to empower and support her through thick and thin, sickness and in health. During the time when Sushma decided to not contest the elections anymore, Swaraj Kaushal hit some major #marriageGoals as he tweeted, “Thank you very much for your decision not to contest any more elections. I remember there came a time when even Milkha Singh stopped running.” This was during the time that she was dealing with health complications.
Swaraj further tweeted in a series of tweet, “This marathon has been on since 1977-that is 41 years. You have contested 11 direct elections. In fact, you contested all elections held since 1977 except when the party did not allow you to contest in 1991 and 2004.”

Even during the times Sushma faced immense internet trolling and received harsh comments from people who were not pleased with her helping out a Pakistani couple get their passports, he jumped to her defense and shed light on how pure-hearted and kind she was. Always pushing her to greater heights, and being her most important cheerleader, Swaraj Kaushal must too be acknowledged for the great work done by Sushma Swaraj, for it had not been possible without him.
We cheer you on Swaraj Kaushal, and wish upon you strength to bear through this hard time of loss.
