Vikram, K Akula, Founder, SKS Microfinance
Sabeer Bhatia, Chairman, Bhatia Enterprises
Anurag Behar, Managing Director, Wirpro Infrastructure Engineering
Barkha Dutt, Senior Editor, New Delhi Television (NDTV)
Suhas Gopinath, CEO, Globals ITeS Pvt.
C V Madhukar, Director, PRS Legislative Research
Sandeep Parekh, Executive Director, Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI)

Anoushka Shankar, Musician, Sitar player
Pooja Shetty, Director, Adlabs Films

Who else should be on the list next year? Remember, YGLers have to be 40 years old or younger.
