The women featured in this issue are not here by the fact that they happen to be women, it is because they are truly excellent professionals who have risen as a result of their talent & sheer hard work. I am sure women from all walks of life will find the stories of the women leaders of airtel very inspiring. Gopal Vittal MD & CEO (India & South Asia)
