Shalini S. Dagar        Print Edition: September 18, 2011

A nominated member of the Rajya Sabha, Shobhana Bhartia also runs one of India's largest media houses. She is Chairperson and Editorial Director of HT Media which had revenues of Rs 1,815 crore in 2010/11.

"We are systematically building a diversified media conglomerate, in line with emerging trends and opportunities in the business across the world," says the daughter of the late K.K. Birla in HT Media's latest annual report.

These efforts include a corporate restructuring last year, followed by a public listing of the Hindi newspaper business. She was not available for an interview. Bhartia told a TV interviewer recently that she does not feel lonely at the top as a woman. "I won't use the word lonely. But yes I would want to see many more women," she said in the interview.
