Neerja Bhanot - An antique violet with purple shimmer, and intense sparkles of blue, silver and pink.


"Neerja Bhanot, was an Indian head purser who died while saving passengers on Pan Am Flight 73 which had been hijacked by terrorists from a terrorist organization during a stopover in Karachi, Pakistan, on 5 September 1986, just two days before her 23rd birthday. Posthumously, she became the youngest recipient of India's highest peacetime gallantry, the Ashoka Chakra Award" - Wikipedia


Neerja hid the passports of the Americans on the flight, to protect them from the hijackers. She died while shielding 3 children from gunfire.
