Chief Election Commissioner James Michael Lyngdoh, i-flex solutions Ltd chief Rajesh Hukku, and TVS Motor chief executive Venu Srinivasan have figured among the top 25 'Stars of Asia' chosen by the prestigious Business Week magazine.
In a cover-page article, the latest issue of the New York-based weekly put the 'intense, straight talking' Lyngdoh, for holding free and fair elections in Jammu and Kashmir and Gujarat, at par with Chinese President Hu Jintao, who raised a relentless battle against SARS that threatened many millions of his countrymen.
Lyngdoh and Jintao are placed in the 'Policy Makers' category, along with South Korean Justice Minister Kang Gum Sil, President of East Timor Kay Rala Xana Gusmao and Indonesian Police officer I Made Mangku Pastika.
Hukku, listed as an entrepreneur in the '25 leaders at the forefront of change,' was chosen for his capability to lead his company i-flex solutions Ltd as the best banking solutions provider ahead of the market leader, Switzerland's Temenos Globus.
After striking gold by developing a stock trading system being used by global wire service Reuters, Hukku broke away from his employer Tata Consultancy Services and started i-flex in early 1990s and within years his banking solution named 'Flexcube' became famous with users across 90 countries."Hukku is now ready for what he calls 'Mission Impossible 3' - cracking the US," the magazine said.
