Google India launched a special programme called Internet Saathi to bring more women online, along with Tata Trusts, in Mumbai on Friday. While inaugurating the event, Tata Trusts chairman Ratan Tata said: “When I was in school, there was no access to even a telephone, and today every rickshaw puller and paan wala has access to a cellphone.

Google as a company has digitized the world and it’s a privilege to work with them towards bringing women online.”
