Ravi Sreedharan, Founder-Director, and Lopamudra Sanyal, Research Fellow at the Indian School of Development Management (ISDM), tackle the work and innovations by social entrepreneurs that continue to redefine social norms.

The authors discuss why India needs more social entrepreneurs to address inequities and gaps today. They also list vital contributors, such as Aravind Eyecare in the space of healthcare.

They recommend that India and the world today needs those who lead with values and work to respond to "the emerging needs in society". Read the Entire Article
