Forbes’ top philanthropists from India are all women

It’s truly women on top as all four Indian corporate leaders featuring in Forbes’ list of Asia Pacific’s most generous business personalities this year are women, including biotech major Biocon’s CEO Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw and Anu Aga of Thermax.

The two others making it to the business magazine’s ‘48 Heroes of Philanthropy’ list are Kiran Nadar, collector of contemporary Indian arts and wife of HCL Technologies co-founder Shiv Nadar, and Rohini Nilekani — wife of IT major Infosys’ co-founder Nandan Nilekani.

Ms. Nilekani, who supports many NGO activities, has featured in the list for the second consecutive year.

“Rohini has donated $40 million over the years to supporting causes such as education, microfinance, health care and environment,” Forbes said.
