Saraswati Kameswaran an Indian citizen living in California was the first Indian and woman to ski to the south pole. She reached the South pole on Jan 20th. Please check the expedetion tracker at http://www.polarexplorers.com/ExpeditionTracker.htm#SP1deg. She did the 1 degree expedition but was the first Indian individual to ski to the South Pole.

The Indian navy team reached the pole earlier but as the whole team.
