In March 2013 when Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg published ‘Lean In’, the book went on to become an immediate bestseller and opened up valuable channels of conversation about women in the workplace in the 21st century. In July of that same year, Apurva Purohit, CEO of FM network Radio City 91.1, published ‘Lady You Are Not a Man- the Adventures of a Woman at Work,’ which went on to become a national bestseller. Though both books are seminal landmarks, their close publication is a sheer coincidence. And though Sandberg’s book is invaluable, Indian women tend to identify much more with Purohit’s work simply because the book is more contextual to the battles being fought here.
Apurva Purohit is the CEO of Radio City 91.1 FM, an IIM –B alumnus and has been managing media organizations for a large part of the 25 years she has spent in the corporate world.
