Shobhaa De’s Dream For India

The WTF quote of the day comes from Shobhaa De during a Q&A with Rediff:

Rediff: How do you want the world to look at India?

Ms De: If you had asked me this question 10 years ago, I would have said an enchantress. Now, I would say a cerebral courtesan.

What could this possibly mean? Does she, perhaps, want Ratan Tata to learn belly-dancing?
