Ever since we launched Forbes India in May 2009, we’ve worked hard to live up to the original Forbes’ promise of being drama critics of business. And we’ve done this through stories that are conversational, just like someone sitting on a bar stool telling you a story. Our stories are about real people and characters, just like in a book or a play, and they are seldom warm and sunny all the time. It’s been hard work, but we’ve enjoyed every minute of the journey. In return, we’d also like to believe that we’ve earned a precious commodity: Your trust.This very trust has actually given us the confidence to embark on our newest venture: ForbesLife India. By the time you read this letter, the inaugural edition will be available at all leading bookshops. Edited by Charles Assisi, my exceptionally talented colleague, ForbesLife India has a very different DNA from the plethora of lifestyle magazines in the market.
