Yamini Aiyar founded the Accountability Initiative to track and inform the public of what really happens to government money in India. The Initiative also researches the effectiveness of accountability efforts in the country. The group’s work has drawn praise from Indian government officials, and even from President Obama. Taking a cue from her mother, a journalist who combined work and family time, Yamini enjoys cooking with her husband when she gets a little time away from her important work.
