    India's entrepreneurial landscape sometimes reveals inspiring stories of struggle and success. Mr. Ashok Khade's is one such story, because it strengthens our faith in values like hard work, integrity and commitment to excellence. Mr. Khade has seen a fair share of hardships and challenges. Yet, he persisted in his dream of a new day, a new life.
    In due course of time, he acquired training as a draftsman and went on to draw a new pathway for his career. And progressed from being a poor farmer's son to being written about in USA's leading dailies New York Times and Washington Post. He started his own offshore fabrication business DAS offshore which is today a leading fabrication company in India. The company has been selected as a consortium partner for the 200km pipeline project for Mumbai High.

    Managing Director – HDFC Asset Management Company
    India's finance sector has often lauded Mr. Milind Barve for his many achievements in Banking and Finance. He first made his mark in the finance industry by heading HDFC's Treasury portfolio. After a fruitful 16 year innings in that role, he took the initiative to set up HDFC's mutual fund business as its founding CEO in the year 2000.
    Under his leadership HDFC Mutual Fund has soared high above its peers as India's largest mutual fund in terms of size and profitability.
    He is also credited to introduce a unique mutual fund product that achieves two goals: it earns relatively safe returns for the investor, and ensures a regular charitable contribution towards cancer cure for the needy. HDFC Debt Fund for Cancer Cure is the rare act of courage and compassion, a philanthropic feat that few finance professionals could think of.

    At an age when most youths are busy pursuing graduation, Miss Shivani Dani was already working as guest faculty at leading institutes. She was also guiding other faculty members who were pursuing their doctorate in subjects like Derivatives and Debt markets. Clearly, Miss Dani was no ordinary youth. Besides the advantage of an early start, she also had extraordinary command over subjects related to investment management and markets analysis. Even as a student, at National Institute of Securities Management (NISM), she was not just the youngest, but also the brightest, clearing some very difficult exams at first attempt and with unprecedented distinction. She also has the unique distinction of launching a book analyzing the annual budget on the same day as it is presented.

And for Mr. Akshai Varde, nothing can be more powerful a reason than his passion for motorcycles. He quit his job at a leading airline so he could devote all his time to designing and customizing motorcycles. That single decision, that single move has given India a master-craftsman who transforms everyday bikes into one-of-a-kind dream machines. His reputation and extraordinary artistry brought him assignments from exacting customers like Disney, Cannon, Police Watches, Hot Wheels and Bollywood A-listers like Akshay Kumar, Jackie Shroff and Abhinay Deo. His milestones include winning Royal Enfield's 'Best Custom Motorcycle in 2010 and a joint-venture with Italian Motorcycle company Motomorini.

    Founder, Managing Partner – Arch Group Consultants
    The drawing board in Mr. Ashok Korgaonkar's Dubai office can be no common piece of ply. It is the board on which some of the most striking monuments in the Middle East were conceptualized: Grosvenor House, Westin Hotel 1 and 2, Emirates Airlines Headquarters, Green Lakes Towers…the list goes on. As one of our brightest architects, Mr. Korgaonkar has to his credit a number of these towering landmarks that grace the Gulf's skyline. His own career has been no less impressive.
