"New and emerging" brings to mind electronic vehicles - Arvind Matthew gives an interesting perspective in Trend Watch.

Heshika Deegahawathura is sure to get you feeling envious of his choice of abode and work in Foreign Despatch.

Industry Spotlight is on Culture – a panorama of the festivals Mahindra hosts in different parts of India. Doing good reflects on the business that we do – the photo story on Rise in Business is an awakening.

Happy reading!
