<b>Lynn de Souza</b>, Chairman & CEO, Lintas Media Group & Chairperson, RSCI?blur=25

The IRS is a good product, but it is stuck in a time warp. It has to change and improve. It has to be more forward looking. Where just about everything around us is changing, the only two major changes that I have seen in the IRS in the recent years are that it has gone quarterly and the introduction of CAPI... All said and done, I do believe it is important to show the publishing industry of India in good light, though all may not agree with me. It is not a dying industry, and projecting it as such, is not good for India, for our economy, for those who want to invest here or make careers in it. It is a very large professional, diversifying and growing industry, which has some of the most talented people in the business.
