Social conditioning

Nice article on what happens to female school and college toppers in India , more than 50%  end up wasting their talent and skills.   Most of the women who are showcased by the media  belong to a rich/ famous family – they are some one’s wife / daughter / daughter-in-law / girlfriend and owe their position to their relationship, not their own competence.   It is very difficult to start a business from scratch without any backing of any sort , not  only do you miss out on the networking,  many vendors will try to cheat you by charging a higher price / selling substandard material.
