These are in-depth profiles of India's biggest business barons. These are the men who are powering the new India's leap into the 21st Century; the faces behind the great Indian success story.
You'll find them all here. The traditional big names of Indian industry: Ratan Tata and Kumar Mangalam Birla. The new gurus of information technology: Nandan Nilekani and Azim Premji. The wizards of the sunrise entertainment and tetephony sector: Sunil Bharati Mittal, Subhash Chandra and Rajeev Chandrasekhar ... And many more.
