You are one of the women executive in a top role. Do you feel there are challenges in this field as a woman?
There is no challenge; it’s all about how confidently you go ahead. For me men and women are on same scale so I have never considered it as challenge. As a start up one goes through a lot of challenges and obstacles but none of it in my opinion is because of one’s gender.
IT is a field being dominated by men; how do you cope up?
Yes, IT is dominated by men, but I do not take it as a challenge. Today, we live in an era of gender equality. The challenges that one faces have nothing to do with one’s gender. Have faith and dedication in your hard work, be confident and go ahead.
Do you feel there is existence of Glass Ceiling?
No, it doesn’t exist. There is no barrier no limit and the sky is the limit.
What is your favourite pastime?
I am a pianist so that’s my favourite pastime. I also enjoy swimming.
What are your Future plans?
Expansion and growth and more automation.
