Bright and ambitious, they did not ask for, or get any special favours. Being the ‘only girl in class’ was not easy. But bond – ing with each other and finding allies in professors and classmates, these girls not only survived, they thrived. Blossoming into confident young women ready to take on the world. Each one has been a trailblazer, bringing with intellect, acumen and grace to her chosen field. Juggling work and family, me-time and community service, they shine a light on a path where ‘all things are possible’.

The book illustrate the journeys taken by these women over the past few decades by having in-depth and one-on-one conversations with each of them. It documents their lives – from the successes and challenges they faced on campus, to their subsequent professional and personal lives. They also explore how their educational journeys and networking experiences on campus, especially the personal connections with their hostel batch mates, enriched their lives and made them into the strong and powerful women they are today.
