Well, that is form of a difficult state of affairs.
Gita Gopinath, the Chief Economist of the International Monetary Fund, is clearly a particularly completed individual and deserves the reward she will get, however the form of appreciation she not too long ago received is being questioned proper now.
It’s no shock she was a part of a question on the sport present Kaun Banega Crorepati as her image was proven and the contestant was requested to determine which group is that this economist a part of.
When Gita received to learn about her little surprising cameo on KBC, she was over the moon as she’s an enormous Amitabh Bachchan fan.
Sharing her pleasure on Twitter, she talked about how particular this second is for her.

Well, she’s clearly comfortable about all the factor, however folks have discovered Amitabh Bachchan’s remarks about her on the present a tad bit sexist.
When her image was proven on the present, Big B mentioned, “Her face is so beautiful that no one can relate her to economy.”
thanks Gita Gopinath ji .. I meant each phrase i mentioned about you on the present .. mentioned in utmost earnestness .. https://t.co/VuyJCjfyCI

Actually, that does sound extraordinarily problematic because it simply perpetuates the notion that ladies could be fairly or good, and by no means each.
While I’m certain Big B did not have any dangerous intentions with what he mentioned, in the event you have a look at it objectively, it does sound moderately problematic and folks had been fast to level that out.
I didn’t just like the remark about linking magnificence with brains. Stupid of Mr. Bachchan to counsel that stunning ladies can’t be economists.

So unhappy that he simply needed to point out your appears whereas pointing to your earned achievement. Bet you he would not have made a point out if, say, @raghuramrajan or @kaushikcbasu had been on the display. Anyway, congratulations to you @GitaGopinath : maintain the flag flying excessive!

Yes, it was very pointless.
Most sexist comment although. Indicative of the restricted information and regressive outlook of this so referred to as nice man. Beautiful folks can’t be economists and vice versa ? And why even touch upon the face ? It’s a quiz.
