The Forbes "30 under 30" annual list is out and 45 Indians and Indian-origin people have made it to the list this year. The prestigious list features 600 men and women -- 30 achievers each in 20 categories -- who are America's most important entrepreneurs, brightest stars and creative leaders, according to the Press Trust of India.

"In the past, being young was considered a handicap to gaining professional success. Getting older meant more resources, knowledge, and more money. Not anymore. Those who grew up in the technology age have way bigger ambitions perfectly suited to the dynamic, entrepreneurial and impatient digital world they grew up in. If you want to change the world, being under the age of 30 is now an advantage," PTI quoted Forbes as saying.
