Early on, I was one of those women who didn’t believe that “powerful, successful women” could find a partner, so I was content with the idea of working most days and nights and dating intermittently.

Globally, smart cities are the latest buzzword. With growing urbanisation, governments are looking at the way in which they make their cities efficient, sustainable and more comfortable for the citizens.

It is about creating safe city that’s ensures public safety, safe public spaces, safe transportation and safe workplaces. It is also about creating right infrastructure.
