Combine your questions, answer  for 2, 3, 4, plus the fact that there are
three of us in a 1100 odd list. Please do the math. That combined with your
above answer, u pretty much answered your own questions. If you are still
not happy, shoot an email offline or join Pyladies Bangalore mailing list.
We have a growing community of women programmers and discuss quite a lot of

Same here. Never knew you existed also..:-) Quite mutual ..! I am learning
python and helping others learn Python.

Just a couple of things, I am a Bangalorean. However I studied and did my
masters in US. And I shuttle between California and Bangalore a couple of
times in a year. I am very interested in Bangalore startup culture. Hence I
am trying to see what I can do to improve the less than .2% women
participation from Bangalore.

Its great to connect with an experienced lady python programmer. It will be
nice if you can come down and talk to some of the ladies to teach them
python programming.

Thanks for your email. Its always nice to know there is other ladies on
this list.

Thanks and regards,
