19 in '19

To ring in the New Year, Deccan Herald is proud to shine the spotlight on 19 changemakers to watch in 2019, and beyond. Through their initiatives and innovations, these 19 -- either a Kannadiga, or someone who embodies the spirit of Karnataka -- are paving the way for a better tomorrow, across different spheres of work. The candidates have been chosen from across specialisms such as social work, sport, agri-tech, business, arts and culture, films and media, and governance.


     Join us in celebrating these 19 harbingers of change.
