DNA salutes Mumbaikars who made a difference in ‘The Influentials’

DNA launched its annual eclectic list of the Top 50 movers and shakers of Mumbai, ‘The Influentials’, on July 5. The book is now in its third year since its launch in 2006. The third edition has been introduced by Mumbai Police Commissioner AN Roy.

Commenting on the third edition of ‘The Influentials’, R Jagannathan, Executive Editor, DNA, said, “The list was introduced by our editorial board in 2006 to mark the first anniversary of the newspaper’s launch. This year, it has seen an amazing amount of movement in the rankings. The people who figure in this list are there because of what they have achieved and not because of who they are. That, we believe, is also the true essence of the DNA of Mumbai.”

Ayaz Memon, Editor-at-Large, DNA, added, “The book this year includes several new faces. Among the 50 influentials are those that impact policy, policing, palate, cinema, business enterprises, sport, medicine, governance, social consciousness and high society – covering every aspect of life that is important to a Mumbaikar.”

According to KU Rao, CEO, DNA, “What is great about the book is that each influential in the list has been written about by a fellow influential from the same walk of life. We have, through this initiative, paid homage to all those that have in some way impacted our favourite city, Mumbai, and in doing so, impacted the lives of all Mumbaikars.”
