the power list 2020

Every woman is shakti personified. A source of strength, which, like the proverbial river, flows from within her soul. Her resilience is unsurpassable, and her acumen for getting past setbacks as powerful as a thousand suns. She might be born ‘wearing the pants’, yet her grace, combined with her inborn humility and her need to turn all to gold, makes her cloak her power with innate beauty and a gentle demeanour that is often considered a sign of fragility. But fragile is the one thing she is not. Every woman can invoke her inner shakti and stand steadfast on her track. Femina, the voice of power women, profiles 19 women who have conquered the track called life. Women who are 100 per cent at the helm of their career trajectory, be…

I am a product of traditional India and its ancient wisdom, and modern India and its urban bustle. My upbringing was always an amalgamation of the two Indias, and, just as much, of East and West,” says Priyanka Chopra Jonas. From Bareilly to Beverly Hills via Bombay is a climb of daunting proportions. A veritable Mount Everest of a climb for a young, single, honest and honestly-talented girl. Almost a flight of fantasy that even the most hedonistic dreamers could shrug off as a wild card, impossible to achieve in real life. Yet this desi girl, oomph queen, Miss World, global Indian and real actor took this unreal journey to its utmost heights, paving the way for many well-brought-up, middle-class girls to dream big, to imagine the unimaginable, to take a leap…
