The Forbes India’s List Of 30 Achievers Under the Age of 30 is Out. Be Inspired!

In the latest issue of Forbes India, 30 Indian achievers under the age of 30 are being celebrated. This issue, titled ’30 under 30′ features young superstars from 13 categories, like health, law, politics, entertainment, NGOs and social entrepreneurship, art, etc.

“The tremendous creative energy across all spheres — from the entrepreneurial to sport to art and culture — is real enough for the rest of the world to be awed and inspired by”, says Sourav Majumdar, Editor, Forbes India, told First Post.

Forbes India zeroed in on the achievers based on three parameters – the extent of the impact of an achievement in a short span of time and its ability to disrupt the status quo; scalability of the business or line of work; and enough indication of being a long-term player.
