India’s top female banker wrote a letter to her daughter that has lessons for working women everywhere.

Chanda Kochhar is the award-winning managing director and CEO of ICICI, one of India’s largest private banks. A recent letter written by her to daughter about family and career has gone viral for its insights into what it means to be a working woman.

The letter, which appeared in the book Legacy: Letters from Eminent Parents to Their Daughters, has been been trending on social media since it was first published.

In the letter, Kochhar talks about being brought up by a working mother and a single parent, after her father passed away. She also shares her own experience of being a a working parent later.

“If you had complained and whined about my extended absence from home, I would never have had the heart to make a career for myself. I am blessed with a great and supportive family and I really hope you too will be as fortunate when you set out on your own,” she writes.

Kochhar has been featured in Forbes’ list of ‘The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women’ and Timemagazine’s ‘100 Most Influential People in the World’ list.
