    Red face !!~~ power elites ~~!!







    1. Ratan Tata (72, Industrialist): World class

    Because he commands the unquestioned attention of governments and corporates though he does not figure in any list of Indian billionaires.
    Because he heads India's largest corporate house, with group revenues expected to cross $5 billion and the largest market capitalisation of Rs 3,36,450 crore.

    Because he is constantly thinking of consumers at the bottom of the pyramid, whether it is offering a cellphone call for a paisa per second, the Nano at Rs 1,00,000, low-cost housing at Rs 4 lakh a flat or even a brand-new water purifier at Rs 999.



    Because Tata Tea is the world's largest tea company,

    TCS is Asia's largest software exporter,

    Titan is the world's fifth largest watch maker,

    Tata Steel is the world's sixth largest steel producer

    and Tata Power is India's largest private sector power utility.
    Because unheeding of the Cassandras, he turned around his $2.3-billion acquisition, Jaguar-Land Rover.

    Because through new buys and new products, he has transformed the Tata Group from a collection of companies into a global entity with over 60 per cent revenues coming from its international operations.


    Is proud of:

    His company's social initiatives, whether it is TCS' functional literacy programme or Tata Teleservices' high-tech help for fishermen.


    What's in his garage?: A canary yellow Nano, sharing space with a Ferrari and a Lamborghini. But he often drives to work in an Indica.

    As good as it gets: The times spent in his Alibaug cottage with his dog, Tito.

    POWER MOMENT: Launch of Jaguar-Land Rover in India.
    IS NEVER WITHOUT: A Titan, from its slimmest watch series.


    Thank you bala

    . Mukesh Ambani (52, Industrialist): Above the league


    Because he is the world's richest Indian worth over $30 billion.
    Because he can get the government to act for him and even intervene in a family dispute, filing a special leave petition in the gas supply case with his brother.

    Because despite the downturn, the Reliance Industries turnover has shot up and is expected to touch Rs 1,90,000 crore from over Rs 1,51,000 crore.
    Because within seven months of his gas fields going into production, Reliance has become the nation's largest gas producer, surpassing the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation.

    Because at current rates, Reliance Industries makes a net profit of Rs 42 crore every day.
    Because he can get the Government to set up a committee for the third time to dismantle the administered price regime in petroleum products because it hurts private players.

    Because he was ranked the world's fifth-best CEO in a Harvard Business Review survey. Big honour: Receiving the Dean's Medal from the School of Engineering and Applied Science, University of Pennsylvania, for "visionary leadership in application of technology for the betterment of mankind".

    Party hearty: Joined wife Nita in hosting a banner event for Sachin Tendulkar on completing 20 years of international cricket.

    Big worry: Where to invest over Rs 30,000 crore cash profits that his businesses will generate from 2012.

    Cost benefit: Thanks to Reliance Gas, lower generation costs could save the nation Rs 13,200 crore every year.

    FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Breakfast at Modern Cafe Madras.

    POWER QUOTE: "How do I get off this list?"

    3. Anil Ambani (49, Industrialist): The fighter Because he never blinks first and has taken on his big brother to carve out an empire from leftovers.
    Because he has forced the Government of India to withdraw its plea and change its stance in the Supreme Court in the gas sales agreement case between the Anil Ambani Group and Mukesh Ambani's RIL.

    Because at $17.5 billion, he is the third richest Indian in the world on the Forbes Billionaires' list.
    Because millions of Indians trust their savings with Reliance Mutual Fund, making it the largest with assets of Rs 1,20,000 crore.

    Because he has 100 million telecom consumers across India and abroad. Because his metro rail projects in Mumbai and Delhi costing Rs 15,000 crore will start operation this year.
    Because he closed a $825-million partnership with Steven Spielberg's DreamWorks, and has creative deals with Hollywood royalty like Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt and George Clooney.
    Because his Big 92.7 is the largest FM radio network, with a presence in 45 cities.

    Because he is investing Rs 8,000 crore in building 700 km of roads across the country.

    Because he is investing over Rs 1,00,000 crore to generate 34,000 MW of power, enough to light up 10 cities the size of Delhi.

    Often known to: Drop in on Murli Deora for breakfast in Mumbai after his morning run.

    Divine connection: Is known to take off every other weekend to visit a temple and has probably visited all the major shrines in India.
    FAVOURITE MOVIES: Passion of Christ, Gandhi and Inglourious Basterds.
    STAR POWER: Hosted Bollywood A-listers, from Amitabh Bachchan to Shah Rukh Khan in Mumbai, and Steven Spielberg on video conference.

    4. Aamir Khan (44, Actor): The megahit man Because he is India's most consistent box-office star, with four films in four successive years grossing over Rs 100 crore each, proving himself as an actor, director, and producer of films that make a difference.

    Because everyone wants a slice of his integrity, whether it is the Government of India's Incredible India campaign, the Election Commission or the Human Resource Development Ministry's copyright panel.

    Because he is now the country's highest-paid endorser, charging Rs 35 crore for two years.
    Because even as everyone in Bollywood wants to work with him, he's content to bide his time and produce three little films of his own.

    Because he has emerged as the man the industry turns to, whether to aid the junior artiste association or to combat piracy.

    Most recent habit: Badminton. His home is littered with Yonex rackets.

    Most recent holiday: In Chamonix, France, with wife Kiran Rao, to help
    her recover from a miscarriage.

    Loves to: Write notes to authors he likes, as he did to Ramachandra Guha upon reading India After Gandhi.

    Excited about: A skiing lesson in Park City, Utah, during the Sundance Film Festival.

    POWER READ: Gandhi and Churchill by Arthur Herman which compares the two.
    AN OFFER HE DID REFUSE: Of Rs 500 crore to start a studio by a consortium headed by Rakesh Jhunjhunwala.

    5. Sachin Tendulkar (36, Cricketer): Record breaker

    Because, along with his cricket bat, he still holds India in the palm of his hand.

    Because in a world of fluctuating celebrity, his image, and his word, remain unspoilt.

    Because in the last year, his 21st season in international cricket, he scored more than 2,000 runs and 10 centuries, being the true north of India's rise to the world No.1 spot in Test rankings.

    Because the oldest cricketer in his sport still plays like the youngest, with the enthusiasm and energy of a debutant, be it running and sliding or becoming the first man to score 200 in a one day international.

    Out of the box moment: A week in Iceland, spent enjoying the landscape, free of mandatory shopping or even press conferences.

    Did you know: He has an email address with a username the sachintendulkar--quite an accurate call, that one.

    Work in progress: The distance he is putting between himself and other batsmen in scoring international 100s, currently a total of 93, of which 47 are in Tests and 46 in ODIs; and Dorab Villa, which is being remodelled into his dream home in suburban Bandra.

    LOVES TO: Go for late night drives with buddies in his Ferrari.

    POWER EXCHANGE: With Mark Knopfler; Sachin handed over a cricket bat and Knopfler his guitar.

    6. Shah Rukh Khan (44, Actor): Tough act


    Because he stared down the bullying Shiv Sena, emerged as the voice of the liberal Indian, and showed courage to a city that lives in fear of paper tigers.


    Because when the Sena called for a ban on My Name is Khan, he got the government machinery firmly behind him even as citizens flaunted a visit to the multiplex as a badge of honour.

    Because with a VFX studio and an IPL cricket team, he has shown show business can be big business.

    Because he pulled off a stunning performance in My Name is Khan, silencing critics who thought his repertoire was limited.

    Because even when he loses, he wins, as the net profit of his team, Kolkata Knight Riders, has shown.
    Because he has a stranglehold on our affections and as much as he cannot stop talking, India cannot stop listening.


    Loves to: Spend time with his children.

    Cannot live without: Luxury brands, from Ralph Lauren towels to Dolce&Gabbana shoes to Gucci T-shirts.

    Should be embarrassed about: Going ahead with the Lux Cozy
    endorsement despite being told of the owner Ashok Todi's role in the Rizwanur case.

    POWER WHEELS: The 14-foot modified vanity van designed by Dilip Chhabria.
    IS RE-READING: Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog at Night-Time.
    Thank you bala

    8. Samir and Vineet Jain (pic) (55,43; Media Barons): Daily mint


    Because they constantly innovate to stay ahead of the curve, whether it is by launching a new weekend paper or a separate edition of Speaking Tree.

    Because though they have over Rs 1,000 crore of loans on their books, their flagship papers, The Times of India, The Economic Times and Mumbai Mirror, three television channels, 32 radio stations, a string of profitable websites, a PR company and an outdoor advertising company, into which Goldman Sachs and Lehman Brothers paid $25 million each, continue to grow in a tough market.

    Because having monetised every opportunity that presents itself, they are constantly being imitated by other media houses whether it is launching a leadership initiative or a peace mission with Pakistan.

    Not-so-smart move: Buying up newsprint stock just before the prices crashed.

    Wedding of the year: That of Samir's daughter Trishala to Satyan Gajwani, both Stanford graduates who now work with BCCL. While Trishala is the brain behindCrest and the Speaking Tree, Gajwani works in the Internet division.
    Obsessive about: For Vineet, the photo gallery of Indiatimes. For Samir, the edit page layout.

    POWER ACCESSORIES: For Vineet, it's society girls at his annual Holi party.

    MISSING IN ACTION: Samir's Haridwar getaways, Vineet's disco days.
    Thank you bala
