THE CHAL­LENGES OF BE­ING A WOMAN EX­EC­U­TIVE IN A TOP ROLE

As I am not in a full time job and have my own busi­ness, I do not find many chal­lenges, in­fact I find a lot of ad­van­tages of be­ing a woman.

ED­U­CA­TIONAL BACK­GROUND

I am hon­ors in English lit­er­a­ture.

FAM­ILY BACK­GROUND

I come from a very con­ser­va­tive pa­tri­ar­chal fam­ily, but got mar­ried to Vinod who has quite lib­eral thought process.

WORK­ING IN MALE-DOM­I­NATED FIELD OF IT

Yes, I can al­ways feel that IT is a male dom­i­nated in­dus­try, but I am very grate­ful to both my par­ent com­pa­nies, Ep­son and Sony, for al­ways treat­ing women with true gentle­men like at­ti­tude. In­fact they make me feel very com­fort­able.

DOES A GLASS CEIL­ING EX­IST?

No, times have re­ally changed, I do not see any op­por­tu­nity go­ing out of my hand for the rea­son for be­ing a woman, but yes I have al­ways been very dis­creet that my first pri­or­ity is my fam­ily and I work only till 3, so if any op­por­tu­nity comes my way and I de­cline it, it’s a dif­fer­ent is­sue.

HOBBIES

My hobby is to read books and lis­ten to Hindi songs.

FU­TURE PLAN

My fu­ture plan is to just keep both my ser­vice cen­ters go­ing strong, and to give my staff the best in the in­dus­try. My per­sonal fu­ture goals at this stage of my life is more about Vinod’s busi­ness ex­pan­sions and my chil­dren’s ca­reer for­ma­tion.
