For many Indian corporate leaders, 2012 was the year of survival.
While many corporate leaders such as Anil Ambani (seen here) grappled with raising funds for his telecom company, others like AM Naik of Larsen & Toubro was busy fighting slowdown and falling orders.
This was also a year when Mukesh Ambani made more news for fighting the petroleum ministry and an aggressive Comptroller and Auditor General than for the actual performance of his company.
For quite a few telecom heads, 2012 was a nightmare, as they spent more time with the Central Bureau of Investigation than their respective corner rooms.
But things could be better in the new year, as corporate India is hoping that 2013 will bring in some good news, with an aggressive government now going full steam ahead with economic reforms.
And, quite a few are expected to grab the headlines in 2013.
