Chronicling the lives of 48 successful women, Ahluwalia's tome is an inspirational read, peppered with personal anecdotes throughout. This book raises a toast to many real-life heroines.
How did you zero in on the women featured in your book?
"I wanted to portray distinguished ladies who have broken stereotypes to claim an equal stake in society — in politics, social work, business, medicine, arts and sports. Their journeys have not been easy, yet they fought against all odds to become successful and make India shine on a global platform. During my interaction with these remarkable women over the four years of writing the book, I discovered that they had so much to tell….Though each of them had different journeys, there is one common thread in all: focus, hard work and determination."
