I handle the 'Life' section of Forbes India. In previous lives, I was an advertising creative director, voice-over artist, RJ, TV host, web producer and content architect, freelance travel writer, columnist, and consultant to NGOs. I've been blogging since 2003, and co-founded the South-East Asia Tsunami & Earthquake and Mumbai Help blogs (which, with other similar initiatives later became the WorldWideHelp group), and the writers’ community, Caferati. I'm a keen student of collaboration and online culture. I also co-curated the Literature section of the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival from 2006 to 2012. Aside from Twitter (link below), you could also follow me on Facebook or Google+.

At Forbes india, we celebrate success. And we're always on the lookout for individuals who, while making a difference to the world around us, are also achieving personal success. And with India's famous demographic dividend starting to give us returns, we want to hear from young people who are out there, taking chances and creating lasting value.

If you are a young entrepreneur, please fill out this form (also embedded in this post, below). If you are a young professional (or know someone who fits the bill), go here instead (or to the second embedded form below).

If you have queries, do leave a comment.

    Hi Peter, Glad to see the final list of 30 under 30 being released! Good Work! With Nadella catching up all the Indian media attention this past week, I guess its high time to launch a new call for 30 under 30 Indian NRIs (not PIO but NRIs who have graduated from India). Isn't it the right time to find out who is gonna be the next Nadella or Pichai or Indra Nooyi or Anshu Jain in the coming decade. Consider me as one of the tough contender for this List :-) Regards, Roy

    Hi Peter. Is it compulsory to mention the amount of funds raised by an entrepreneur? Also, is the deadline tomorrow 10 AM itself or will we get more time? (just came to know about it)

    Hi, quickly wanted to let you know that the international format phone number field is not accepting the + sign.

      Hi I tested the form in three browsers, and had no problems. The thing is, you should have no spaces or other punctuation. +919876543210 will work, but +91 9876543210 or +91.9876543210 or +91-9876543210 won't.
