    I think it is a breath of fresh air for such an achievement being named the CEO of the year by an American-Indian, Indra Nooyi, a Mangalorean, in these times of recession makes us feel proud. Moreover, the CEO, of PepsiCo Foods, an American based business chain, being woman is all the more remarkable, showing that even a woman can reach such astonishing heights in this male-dominated world.

    I am sure this will inspire the women who have the guts and ambition, to prove that they too can compete with men and show their worth among the conservative male-dominated businessmen.
