World’s 100 most Influential People

Recently, Time Magazine has disclosed the list of 100 most influentive people of the world. The list comprises of 5 categories:

•Artists and Entertainers
•Builders & Titans
•Revolutionaries and Leaders
•Heroes & Icons
•Scientists & Thinkers

While Gordon Brown tops Leaders & Revolutionaries category , Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono is at the bottom of this category.Similarly for other categories, Sheila Bair tops Builders & Titans while Lauren Zalaznick is at the bottom of this category. For Artists & Entertainers, Penelope Cruz is at the top and Kate Winslet is at the lowest position. For Heroes & Icons, Leonard Abess tops and Tiger Woods gets lowest rank. For Scientists & Thinkers category, Shai Agassi is at first position while Nate Silver is at last.

One good point here is that some Indians are also in this list. I have predicted one AR Rahman. For further information on AR Rahman, refer my post AR Rahman and his Father Details. One more reason for me to say Proud to be an Indian.

So, here goes the complete list of world’s 100 most influential people.
