Yes, this time the nation actually wants to know, desperately if I may add, about the smiling beauty gracing the stands at the Eden Gardens on the evening of IPL 8 final between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings on 24th May, 2015.
As the match was underway,  the cameraman was at his regular drill of zooming aimlessly in and out on the over-enthusiastic crowds, cricketing legends sitting in the dugouts and a few Bollywood celebrities cheering for Mumbai Indians. That's when the camera struck gold and found the latest internet sensation, Raakhe Kapoor Tandon, sitting pretty in the VIP box and instantly fell in love with her, like the rest of the nation!

And by the time the gorgeous lady made her way to the ground as the member of the presentation committee, Twitter and other social platforms had already made her their newest muse. In no time, Tandon began trending on Twitter, second only to the #IPLFinal hashtag.
But before you assume that she's just another pretty face at the right place at the right time, here are 10 things about Raakhe Kapoor Tandon:

1. 28-year-old Raakhe Kapoor Tandon is the promoter and director of Raas Housing Finance.

2. She is an MBA graduate from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

3. She is the daughter of Rana Kapoor, MD and CEO of Yes Bank, the fourth largest private sector bank in India.

4. She had two short stints as an investment banker in the US.

5. An entrepreneur in her own right, she has set up a business incubation firm Rural Agri Ventures India Pvt Ltd.

6. She is one of India's 25 Most Influential Women according to India Today magazine.

7. Raakhe Kapoor Tandon is an avid squash and basketball player. 

8. And she absolutely loves Indian food!

And here comes the sad part...

9. She is married to Alkesh Tandon, a Delhi/Dubai based businessman.

10. Their wedding was attended by the Ambanis, Mittals, tennis star Boris Becker and eminent Indian politicians among others.

Admit it, she's undoubtedly the best find of IPL 8!
