Great minds think alike — and, we man­aged to get the best of them un­der one roof at the first edition of Hin­dus­tan Times Game Changer Awards 2017, pre­sented by Appu Ghar, The Re­tail.

Prow­ess, de­ter­mi­na­tion and con­fi­dence are some things com­mon to the awardees, and this evening pre­sented an op­por­tu­nity to fe­lic­i­tate them.

Held at the The Oberoi, Gur­gaon on May 24, Wed­nes­day, the event was a power-packed af­fair. The evening kicked off with a per­for­mance by Dinero Ash and his troupe, and they in­fused a big dose of en­ergy with per­cus­sion play. Hosted by the lovely and elo­quent Gaua­har Khan, the event honoured gamechang­ers from var­ied walks of life.

These in­cluded Com­man­dant Chetan Cheeta, who took nine bul­lets for the na­tion while fight­ing mil­i­tants and taxi driver Deben­dra Kapri who re­turned valu­ables worth lakhs left by a pas­sen­ger in his cab, in­spir­ing many. The win­ners also in­cluded par­a­lympian Deepa Ma­lik, tech maven Rahul Sharma and Mex­i­can Am­bas­sador to In­dia Melba Pria who uses her eco-friendly auto to mo­ti­vate Del­hi­ites. MoS for In­for­ma­tion & Broad­cast­ing Colonel Ra­jyavard­han Singh Rathore was a win­ner for his in­dis­pens­able con­tri­bu­tion and ac­tor Rana Dag­gu­bati for be­ing an in­spi­ra­tion in the field of cinema. FDCI pres­i­dent Su­nil Sethi was an awardee for chang­ing the face of fash­ion in In­dia, while so­cial me­dia star Bhu­van Bam, hos­pi­tal­ity baron Priyank Sukhija and real es­tate leader Niti Sax­ena were also fe­lic­i­tated.
