Outlook Business takes a look at 21 newsmakers of 2021. From corporates to common people, here are those that shaped the year

The year 2021 will go down in history as one of the most tumultuous years for India. The second wave of COVID ravaged the country, stealing people of their loved ones and hope. However, as the country grappled with the piling dead due to an unprecedented medical crisis, several superheroes emerged out of ordinary citizens as well as big corporates. Success stories such as Falguni Nayar of Nykaa, who broke glass ceilings while building her wealth from scratch to become India’s richest woman billionaire or Mirabai Chanu, the humble Manipuri girl who clinched the silver medal for India in the Tokyo Olympics, brought some hope.
