It has been very exciting to help companies raise capital, buy businesses and grow," says Vedika Bhandarkar, 43, Managing Director and Vice Chairman of Credit Suisse in India.

Bhandarkar graduated from IIM Ahmedabad in 1989. She was with ICICI and later JPMorgan for some years, and, since last summer, with Credit Suisse. Deals such as the $1.22 billion sale of Patni Computers to iGate earlier this year are all in a day's work for her.

After work, if it is not family or travel, it is learning Kathak or reading. Her dream project? "It will be in education, an opportunity to give back to society," she says.

HER PASSIONS OTHER THAN WORK
Kathak. She also plans to take up Hindustani classical music
