Surprisingly, there are two from India in the top 6! And strangely, Indra Nooyi figures higher than Sonia Gandhi. Quite ironic and interesting. While in India, we cannot a MAN who can stand up to Gandhi. Abroad, a sari-wearing, religious, Indian women has gotten to the top in a much difficult world.. and trumped Gandhi in the top rankings!
Another interesting thing – the top 10 rankings are divided equally between Corporate heads and Politicians!
