2007- 2011: The current President of India.
(born 1934). The first woman president of India was lawyer and politician Pratibha Patil. She served in that office from 2007 to 2012. (India’s first woman prime minister, the head of government, was Indira Gandhi.)
"Patriotic Indians should thank the President of India for having the courage, by citing a legal hitch, to dissuade Sonia from staking her claim to form the government on 17 May this year. She therefore, despite all the contrived media hype, did not, and could not, become the Prime Minister of 1 billion plus people of India. It can now be said that Bharat Mata has been saved from a monumental, devastating, and permanent injury to her national interest and to the patriotic psyche of Indians.
2012-Present: The 13th President of India
in the Indian media, citing response to Right to Information requests, Ms. Patil undertook “12 foreign trips, covering 22 countries across four continents and spending 79 days abroad,” which cost the public exchequer two billion rupees ($36 million), exceeding the record of all her predecessors. Former President A.P.J Abdul Kalam undertook seven trips to 17 countries during his five-year tenure.
Pranab Mukherjee; 13th President of India; In office 25 July 2012 – 25 July 2017: ..Arun Shourie introduces the Sonia sublime subject in a saffronized and communal manner as follows: "A big step for women - This shows India has a lot of respect for women - My nomination will inspire other women and help their empowerment -" that is how Pratibha Patil described her selection as the UPA candidate for being our President. Loyalists, of course, went one better. "A firm believer in women"s causes and a tireless champion of spreading education among girls. One who always stands for a better deal for women active role in checking such evils as female foeticide and dowry..." "Working women of Mumbai hail" "Yes, Ma"am Commander" Armymen look forward to reporting to first woman Supreme Commander of Armed Forces And all this within two days of her selection.

Pratibha Patil: President of India 2012–2017: Succeeded by Ram Nath KovindPratibha Patil’s 5 year Presidential reign from 2007 to 2012 was the most uneventful 5 year period in the history of the Rashtrapati Bahavan. When her tenure was over, all of India heaved a collective sigh of relief.
Biography of Prativa Patil-The First Lady President of IndiaDr. Rajendra Prasad, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam; such are the names that have brought dignity to the office of the President and brought pride to every Indian. But Pratibha Patil was a nobody when she was selected to be the President. Nobody outside Maharashtra knew who she was. But that didn’t matter because she was well known to the Gandhi family. They say Indira Gandhi loved her . That might have qualified her to be the judge of the Indian Masterchef maybe, but the President of India? The truth is that she was chosen for her servility to the Congress high command.
