10 interesting Forbes India must reads for the weekend

Forbes US recently completed 100 years of its existence. Our latest India issue was a celebration of the century-old legacy. Here are some of the stories from the issue.

The collector's edition is on the stands now! 

Being Forbes: Why it is much more than a prestigious media brand
Our Editor Sourav Majumdar writes, "The hallmark of a lasting institution is its ability to change with the times and Brand Forbes has done so with passion and fervour." In this issue, "...we bring you the very best of Forbes through the years—from the first-ever Rich List to the magazine’s hits and misses. It also brings together for the first time a galaxy of the world’s 100 greatest living business minds: From the legendary Warren Buffett who is seen on the cover holding the very first issue of Forbes Magazine to Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Ratan Tata. They share their experiences, learnings, failures and successes in what we believe is a treasure-trove for business leaders across the world." There's all this and a lot more in the centennial special issue. Click here to read the full edit
