Women of Sub­stance What does it take to in­spire a bil­lion strong na­tion? Twenty women to start

with. In­ge­nious en­trepreneurs and far-sighted CEOs, celebrity role mod­els and com­pas­sion­ate philanthropists with mo­men­tum, spheres of inuence and im­pact who can mould and shape so­ci­ety. This women’s is­sue presents a list of 20 In­dian women who are not only em­i­nent but have used their sta­tus, wealth and pres­tige to fo­cus on a larger goal.

Nita Am­bani, Chair­per­son and Founder of Re­liance Foun­da­tion and one of the most prom­i­nent inuencer on our list, has stag­ger­ing gures to drive the point home. Re­liance Foun­da­tion has 50,000 vil­lages and ur­ban lo­ca­tions in In­dia en­gaged for de­vel­op­ment. And more than 350,000 peo­ple be­long­ing to weaker sec­tions of so­ci­ety have been pro­vided with pri­mary and pre­ven­tive health­care so far. Our cover per­son­al­ity, 21-year-old Ananya Birla, scion to one of the coun­try’s big­gest con­glom­er­ates, chose to out cor­po­rate clichés and opted for an en­tre­pre­neur­ial route to suc­cess. Her start-up, Swatantra Mi­cronance Pvt. Ltd., a mi­cronance in­sti­tu­tion is set to hit the ₹500 crore mark in its Gross Loan port­fo­lio (GLP) this year. It has em­pow­ered many women in the coun­try and helped ac­com­plish their nan­cial dreams. Cast­ing their shad­ows suc­cess­fully within their or­gan­i­sa­tion, media, brand, na­tional and international the­atres, th­ese women and the oth­ers who made it to the list are inuencers with a vis­i­ble im­pact. Our story 20 In­dian Women of Inuence is their mi­cro-bi­ogra­phies. Out of all the in­nu­mer­able nuggets of wis­dom, by Amer­i­can in­vestor and phi­lan­thropist War­ren Buf­fet, this one is our favourite, “Op­por­tu­ni­ties come in­fre­quently. When it rains gold, put out the bucket, not the thim­ble.” To lead a wealthy post-re­tire­ment life, it is es­sen­tial to for afuent women to cash on the cor­rect prospects and be pru­dent about sav­ing. In this is­sue, we scru­ti­nise the silent killers of long-term wealth and the var­i­ous ways to plug the ero­sion, in or­der to en­joy the bliss­ful golden years ahead. We also a have a to-do list of all the con­tem­po­rary lux­u­ries to in­dulge in the an­cient land of cre­ation – Is­rael. Be it walk­ing through bustling tra­di­tional mar­kets with aro­matic avours, ap­pre­ci­at­ing the­atri­cal per­for­mances or gallery hop­ping through the 200 – odd mu­se­ums, Is­rael is a myth­i­cal land of gran­deur and mys­ti­cal charm. We also draw your at­ten­tion to an as­sort­ment ob­jets d’art, limited edi­tion gad­gets con­nois­seurs’ll be com­pelled to ac­quire. Also, strik­ing sports yachts and match­less

au­to­mo­biles money can buy. Plus, a wrap-up of all the re­cent so­cial en­gage­ments worth their salt. Let this is­sue be your com­pass to the best in life. Stay wealthy, stay happy. Pari­neeta Sethi Chief Edi­tor & Pub­lisher
