Punjab has originally been called the land of entrepreneurs but of late there has been criticism that the state’s not been living up to its past glory. While manufacturing has hit a thud there are sprouts of ideas in the technology and knowledge space. While a lot of new age startups are based in Chandigarh, the capital city there are many women taking up work from home opportunities.
