What makes Indu Jain a Global Shaker?

Indu Jain is Chairperson of Bennett, Coleman & Co. Ltd, India’s largest media company. The company owns numerous TV channels and major newspapers, including The Times of India, which has held the distinction as the most-read English-language newspaper in the world.

The Indian media behemoth also publishes the second-biggest financial newspaper in the world, The Economic Times, and produces mobile and TV content for India in Hindi and English through a partnership with Vice media.

Bennett, Coleman & Co. Ltd is now run by Jain’s sons, Samir and Vineet.

“Living in the present means not having regret for the past, nor worrying for the future. Life is what is now,” Indu said.
