Sometimes, a cliche says it best, so I am going to use one to describe a lady like no other: Parmeshwar Godrej was indeed a legend in her lifetime.
As a corporate entity in her own right, Parmeshwar was recognised internationally for many of her forward-thinking initiatives involving global concerns (AIDS awareness, for example).
With her magnetic personality and persuasive powers, she was entirely at home with world leaders, lending able support to her husband Adi Godrej at international fora.
