About deFacto

Like most great ideas, this book has a simple thought – the concept that this book is based on – “It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness”. And that is precisely what Ms. Pushpanjali Reddy has set out to do. She will tell you of her plight in finding a woman surgeon when required to undergo a simple procedure. Women are everywhere in the professional and corporate world and yet as most will tell, they are mighty difficult to find when you set out to actually finding one. So does this book make women more accessible? No. Does it claim to catalog mail order brides? Most certainly not! It is the sentiment behind the book; that of service to women by women themselves and a celebration of womanhood.

Pushpanjali Reddy

Pushpanjali Reddy shares the empowering effect of the women profiled in the book and believes the true value of the book will be realized if it too has that same empowering effect on its readers. An architect by profession and also an industrialist and builder she exemplifies the spirit of entrepreneurship.
