Army Chief General Manoj Pande on Monday honored Major Radhika Sen, an Indian peacekeeper, who was recently conferred with the prestigious ‘UN Military Gender Advocate of the Year’ Award by the United Nations.

Major Sen received the 2023 award from UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres last Thursday at the UN headquarters in New York. She served with the UN Organisation Stabilisation Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO).

Born in Himachal Pradesh in 1993, Major Sen joined the Indian Army eight years ago. A biotechnology engineering graduate, she was pursuing her master’s degree from IIT-Bombay when she decided to join the armed forces.
