When I first met Lila Poonawalla, I was a young mother of a 4-year-old struggling to balance my roles as mother and career journalist, while she was managing director of a multi-national company. I watched in fascination as she went from strength to strength, setting up joint ventures, new companies, taking on additional responsibilities till she retired, around 2 decades later.     And then the corporate diva returned to the limelight in a new avtaar that...
