A chartered accountant, Purie first revived Thomson Press. He then set up Living Media to publish India Today, which has redefined magazine journalism in the country. The India Today group which has grown out of the magazine, is one of the largest media conglomerates in India.

The magazines run by the India Today Group are:

* Men's Health - India Edition [4]
* Harvard Business Review (Indian Edition)
* Mail Today (A newspaper bought out as a joint venture with the Daily Mail)

Along with this, the group also comes out with several supplements for all their magazines. New magazines, including one called 'Wealth Today' are also on the anvil.

Apart from a number of publications, the group also controls TV Today, which owns the popular Hindi news channel Aaj Tak in December 2000. TV Today, whose CEO is G Krishnan is a listed company whose shares are traded on the Bombay Stock Exchange and National Stock Exchange. Other than Aaj Tak they also run three other channels - 'Headlines Today' an English language news channel, which has not been able to dent the lead of channels like NDTV, 'Tez' a snappy-format news channel, using a concept borrowed from CNN Headline News but in Hindi and Aaj Tak Dilli a local news channel for Delhi. A Business news channel in collaboration with Bloomberg is also expected shortly.

Aroon was educated at the Doon School, as were two editors of India Today (Suman Dubey and Inderjit Bhadwar). He earned a BSc Economics from the London School of Economics in 1965. He is married to Rekha Purie,a former model. He has 3 children, Kalli Purie, Koel Purieand Ankur Purie. His brother-in-law is the famous heart surgeon, Dr. Naresh Trehan.

India Today magazine was started by Aroon Purie's father, V.V.Purie and his sister Madhu Trehan. Aroon Purie had nothing to do with it until he took it over two years later when his sister returned to the United States and they couldn't keep any editor they hired. His sister Madhu Trehan was also instrumental in taking the India Today group into the television media, when she started Newstrack and then Aaj Tak. Aroon Purie"s youngest sister, Mandira Purie worked as a photojournalist with India Today.

Re: Indian Business Tycoons - who's who - July 10th, 2008

Azim Premji

Azim Premji (Gujarati:અઝીમ પ્રેમજી) (born July 24, 1945), an Indian businessman, is the Chairman & CEO of Wipro, one of the largest software companies in India. Its headquarters is in Bangalore, "the Indian Silicon City". Azim Premji was rated the richest person in the country from 1999 to 2005 by Forbes. His wealth in 2006 was estimated at $14.8 Billion which places him as the Fifth Richest Indian. He is now considered to be worth closer to 17.1 billion.

Born July 24, 1945 (1945-07-24) (age 62)
Bombay, India

Premji is married to Yasmeen, the couple have two children, Rishad and Tariq. Rishad is married to Aditi.

Premji is known for his modesty and frugality in spite of his wealth. He drives a Toyota Corolla and flies economy class, prefers to stay in company guest houses rather than luxury hotels and even served food on paper plates at a lunch honouring his son's wedding.
The Azim Premji Foundation says it "Aims at making a tangible impact on identified social issues by working in active partnership with the Government and other related sectors of society". The Foundation was set up with financial resources contributed by Azim Premji. Programmes of the Azim Premji Foundation focus on "creating effective and scalable models that significantly improve the quality of learning in the school and ensure satisfactory ownership by the community in the management of the school". Azim Premji Foundation says it "dedicates itself to the cause of Universalization of Elementary Education in India". The organisation has over the years been instrumental in improving the quality of general education, particularly in rural schools.

Citing a technology initiative, the Foundation reported: "Think of a single PC with three display terminals, three keyboards and three 'mouses', which can be simultaneously used as if they are three independent computers". This innovative idea from the Azim Premji Foundation is being deployed in the computer aided learning centre at the Byatarayanapura Higher Primary School in Bangalore South District and in another school.

Five new titles of educational CDs for Indian schools were produced earlier in 2005. They are: Friendly Animals and Journey on the Clouds (English), Swatantra Divas, Fun with Chinchoo in Mathematics and Khel-Mel (Hindi), released in February 2005. With these, the total number of master titles available is 70.

There are now 68 titles in Karnataka, 42 for Andhra Pradesh, 35 for Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry, 18 for Urdu medium schools, six for Orissa, 14 for Gujarat, 3 for Punjab and 1 for Kerala.

This Foundation is also involved in computer-based assessment in Andhra Pradesh (50,000 students took part in early 2005), a learning guarantee programme, and a policy planning unit in Karnataka.
