Throwback Thursday: Deena Mehta; Bombay Stock Exchange's first female president

In this week's #ThrowbackThursday pick, we have Deena Mehta, India's first woman director at the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).

Deena conquered the male-dominated industry and how. According to BBC, the businesswoman has been a stock broker for 32 years now. In fact she is a pioneer as she was one of the first women in the field.

Deena was elected to the board of exchange and went on to become BSE's first female president in 2001.

She recently gave an interview to BBC in which the stock broker opened up about her keen interest in the business and how the stock market intrigued her and that she still remains to be completely hooked to it. "Even after 32 years, I am just awed by how much it surprises me on everyday basis," said Deena.

She was also reported to be the Vice President at the BSE for about two years and was associated with them for six years, from 1996 to 2002.
