My hats off to these Indian women (and others missed by this article). I am extremely proud of their achievements.

We don't need to get smutty. But when do they feel need to quantify them?

In India, the life for women can get pretty bad especially in rural areas. My sister works for a women's rights organization and I have personally seen extremely depressing scenarios. Women achievers give a hope to many of these unfortunates and hence the highlights from the magazine and my support for that.

I appreciate your concern Anand, my compliments. A society can be successful only if the women have a fair degree of freedom on par with men. It's sad when that isn't the case.

it was often said "find the worst house in the best neighborhood"

but sometimes, the best house in the worst neighborhood has its advantage too
