The emergence of India as an economic superpower has challenged business leaders to learn all they can about the fastest-growing economy in the world. What better way to do so than to observe India's high achievers? From fields as diverse as biotechnology, entertainment and green energy, Pota profiles ten of India's movers and shakers, including Narayana Murthy, Chairman of Infosys; K V Kamath, Chairman of ICICI Bank; and role model Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, who broke through the male-dominated Indian business world to become Chairwoman of Biocon India, Asia's largest biotechnology company. India Inc. sifts through the jargon, dusts off the myths and spells out in simple terms what the future holds for the country and the world at large. Pota proves that India is well on its way to providing the next set of role models – to follow Bill Gates, Richard Branson and Warren Buffet – revealing who those business leaders are and what makes them tick.
Vikas Pota is Managing Director of Saffron Chase Ltd., a media relations company with an award-winning India Practice.
"One of the important trends of the first decade of the 21st century is the presence of Indian companies on the world stage. As the geo-economic weight shifts to Asia in this new century, after more than two centuries of Euro-American domination, we need to better understand the implication of the presence of Asian business leaders in the global arena. India Inc. will play an important role in providing a nuanced understanding of India's role in this globally shifting economic environment." – Vishakha N. Desai, President and CEO, Asia Society
