I could imagine she is gifted and ambitious enough to use the Porno-pedia appointment, amongst all the other directorships, for herself and push it in India to the right people.
Great. Just what Indian needs. More unpaid labor for children.
So ... rich Indian, goes to Stanford University to "do communication", picks up some "liberal" ideas (pro-prostitution, pro-abortion etc), goes back to India where even the not-for-profits orgs have housekeepers (nice touch) to recycle them? Worli is where the rich and famous of Bombay live.
