Except for the six months some time during her teens, where she aspired to be an airhostess, Zia Mody was absolutely clear about her choice of career – law. It seemed like a natural progression for the daughter of India’s former attorney general and foremost constitutional expert, Soli Sorabjee. She might have begun from a position of privilege, but none of that came in handy when she set foot in court as a young female barrister.

Her story is complete with anecdotes that reflect decades of pure hard work and breaking down one barrier after the other, quite like her role model, the American legal stalwart, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
