First of all Congrats to Mr. Dhoni. and a good news for the fan of Dhoni. After the great achievement in the 2007 Twenty20 World Cup and 2011 Cricket World Cup, Indian Cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been listed in the list of top 100 most influential people in the world.According to the TIMES 2011 list, there are 5 Indians which are considered as the most influential people in the world. Many of them are artists and activists, reformers and researchers, heads of state and captains of industry.
Here is the name of 5 Indians personality who are placed in the list because of their works, ideas, and success.
- M.S. Dhoni ( Indian Cricket Captain) is on 52nd position
- Mukesh Ambani ( Managing Director of Reliance group of Industries) is on 61st position
- V.S. Ramchandran (Director of the Center for Brain and Cognition) is on 79th position
- Azeem Premji (Chairman of Wipro Limited) is on 88th position and
- Aruna Roy ( Indian politician and social activist) is on 89th position.
An interesting fact about the list is that Dhoni is only an Indian sport person in the list. I am surprised Barack Obama is no longer considered as an influential person. He got a dismal 86th rank, while his wife Michelle Obama is placed at 22nd.
