Leila Seth

This mother’s Day I was thinking about a very particular mother.  Not mine but a woman named Leila Seth.
Leila Seth was the first woman to top the London Bar exam in 1958..  She was the first woman judge on the Delhi High Court.  She became the first woman to be the chief justice of a state high court in India.
