At the age of 22, Arundhati Bhattacharya joined State Bank of India as a probationary officer. Four years later my mother gave birth to me and many years after that, my father took me along to the SBI branch close to our home. The same branch also happened to support me with a housing loan a decade ago. Bhattacharya’s mother was a homeopath much like my self taught father. It turned out to be a great ice breaker with a woman who was named one of the 25 most powerful women in the world by Forbes in 2016. She confessed that she is a bit uneasy handling all the fame and adulation that comes with being the first “chairman” of a Public Sector Bank of the scale of SBI. Of all things, she is most uncomfortable with the formal, rather defensive hands-folded-to-the-chest business portrait and was hoping that I would not subject her to the same. How could I have declined such a request ? 😊 Two weeks ago, while walking around Fort, I chanced upon a book made by a famous cartoonist. It featured caricatures, accompanied with short profiles of leaders of India's corporate sector. I didn't buy the book for I was a bit bummed that it didn't feature a single woman so here’s the second of three of the many portraits I have made of India’s business women.At the age of 22, Arundhati Bhattacharya joined State Bank of India as a probationary officer.
