Arundhati, Nooyi among Forbes' 30 most inspiring women
Two years back, I wrote a Conference Paper jointly with my student Mr Vamshi Krishna of Alliance Business School, Bangalore on a topic titled Women Entrepreneurs for presentation at MIM, Manipal. Yes, we have a host of them - be it in Ms Kiran Majumdar of Biocon, Ms Ila Ben of SEWA, MD of Britannia, Mallika Srinivasan, Shahnaz Hussain, Sulajja F Motwani, Shobhana Bhartia,Ekta Kapoor or Madhura Chatrapathy and so on.
Two or three months back, I was strongly advocating about the much delayed Women's Reservation Bill despite having a Woman President, Woman Speaker of Lok Sabha, Woman Chief of UPA, and a host of popular and strong minded Women as Political leaders viz., Ms Sheela Dixit, Ms Mayawati, Ms Mamata Banerjee, Ms Renuka Chowdari, Ms Brinda Karat, Ms Jayalalitaa, Ms Rabri Devi and so on.
Two weeks back, I was reckoning Women CEOs in the Indian banking industry, right from the two (out of the four) Deputy Governors in RBI, and at the top in the public, private and foreign banks.
And today's captioned news item about Arundhati Roy and Indra Nooyi to be listed among Forbes' 30 most inspiring women makes all of feel proud of women of India.
