Google identified that the internet fails to reach millions of women in the small towns and villages of India, so the company is trying to deliver it to them by bicycle. The Alphabet Inc. unit has built an army of thousands of female trainers and sent them to the far corners of the Subcontinent on two-wheelers, hoping to give rural woman their first taste of the web.
