She has written her biography “A Different Spirit”. Her life gives an impression, that if you want it, you have to ask for it. And if you ask for it and work towards it, you WILL get it. You can understand from one of synopsis her book:
“In 1994, I wasn’t very well-known, but I had almost 150 certificates with me. I kept all my certificates on Dr Manmohan Singh’s table. I told him I wanted to buy a car and needed excise duty exemption that was available to me. (Dr Singh was the finance minister of India then.)
I think he had a tough day at Parliament. He asked me if these were indeed my certificates. I said yes. He then shot a question, “How can I believe that these are yours?” I was outraged. I become livid if anyone questions my honesty or hard work. And to think that this question was being raised after I had travelled for 46 hours in a train that was so unfriendly to the differently-abled that I couldn’t even use the toilet! You can imagine my mental state then.I looked him straight in the face and said, “How can I believe, Sir, that you are Manmohan Singh?” He was taken aback. “What do you mean?” he demanded.”
