Back in 1976, women business school graduates in India were a rare breed. There were no roadmaps or signposts to show you the way. You worked with a lot of self belief and learnt as you went along. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t. Soon, you realized it was less about being a woman and more about being perceived as a terrific contributor and team player.
Establishing this in a man’s world had its challenges ...beating the odds was what it was all about without playing poker!
