Real Estate is an area of deep interest for every Indian, as well as the NRIs who have links with India. NRIs in particular have found over the years that they get very handsome returns on their real estate investments in India. In our cover, we have real estate star Rohtas Goel, CMD, Omaxe Ltd. who was among the first to promote a NRI city several years back in Greater Noida. Soon enough, he realized that the future lay in targeting quality projects in tier II and tier III cities across India. The engineer-turned-business magnate has now built an empire around his brand, Omaxe. Consulting Editor Yogesh Sood has done an interview with Mr Goel, as well as a feature on the group’s main projects. Overall, the real estate segment has quite a few articles and pictures, including Ansal API’s latest foray into Lucknow.

We have a series of business and political interviews, including an interview with the Airports Authority of India chairman Mr V P Agrawal and his wife, Mrs Archana Agrawal. The other interviews include those of Congress MP Pradeep Kumar Balmuchu, BJP councilor Satya Sharma, Samajwadi Party’s Neeraj Shekhar whose father was once Prime Minister of India. We have interviews with venture capitalist Alok Mittal, a member of TiE, and Dr P Lal of the Metro Group of hospitals among others.

India Empire Publications brought out a coffee table format book on the Global Indian Diaspora, taking up key issues of concern to Overseas Indians. Much of these issues have been raised at the global level by the GOPIO International, a credible diaspora body with chapters and members across the world. So the 208-page book details much of GOPIO’s activities as well, while also featuring Little Indias in several countries, and carrying a section on political stalwarts in the diaspora, and Nobel winners from among Overseas Indians. You can order the book online at www.indiaempire.com or write to us directly.

Happy reading.
