“We still have to have equal treatment. I hate being called sweetie or honey at times which I still am called,” said Indra Nooyi, CEO of Pepsi.
“We still have to have equal treatment. I hate being called sweetie or honey at times which I still am called,” said Indra Nooyi, CEO of PepsiCo.
We often assume that after heading one of the world’s largest consumer product companies for nearly a decade and doubling up the company’s revenue in her tenure; after rubbing shoulders with some of the biggest names in the industry and beyond; after being consistently named in the Forbes list of The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women for her successful career at PepsiCo; office-wide respect and gender equality would be given.
But unfortunately it seems that successful leadership doesn’t necessarily lead to equal treatment for women in the workplace.
The cola giant CEO discussed the challenges she had to face as a female in charge at Tina Brown’s Women in the World Summit, 2016. She remarked that one of the toughest hurdle for her to overcome was not being treated equally by her male colleagues, despite being who she is today.
Take a look at the video of this inspirational woman who said that despite the gender disparity at the workplace she ‘clawed’ her way up and that is what we all have to do. As a woman we need to help other women to climb up the ladder too.

Mostly Normal is a book of innocence, longing, filial love, angst and acceptance, encapsulating a gamut of human emotions within its lightweight edifice. The book touches the human heart and will stay with you.
Some books enthral you till the last page, and then there are those that you stop reading after turning a few pages. Some books are a one-time read, while you carry some books with you long after you have read them. Then, once in a while, a book hits you so close to home that you find it difficult to slot into any category.
I will put Priyadeep Kaur’s Mostly Normal (BookSoul Reads, 2022) in this last bracket.
At a little less than hundred pages, Mostly Normal is a testimony of the power of words to inspire, irrespective of their length.
Most women do not get to live their lives the way they want, on their own terms. So why should they be tied down in their old age?
Every morning, while dropping the kids at the bus stop, I find a grandfather waiting with his granddaughter. I see him again when I fetch the kids. This has been the pattern for the last few years.
He is seen actively participating in his granddaughter’s activities, from morning and evening walks to attending her parent-teachers meeting, sending her for extracurricular activities to even planning her birthday party. He is admired by all. He is appreciated for making himself useful in his old age. People rave that the doting grandfather is doing his duty towards his children and grandchildren. The much-admired grandfather is also a widower, having lost his wife years ago to chronic disease. It’s also to be noted that both his son and daughter-in-law are working parents.
Every day, the onlookers appreciate his sense of duty and dedication. They say that this is how the elderly should keep themselves occupied. They should bring up their grandchildren while their children go off to work.
