Tycoons like Ratan Tata, Mukesh Ambani, Sunil Mittal, commerce minister Kamal Nath, aviation minister Praful Patel, UP chief minister Mayawati, Delhi Metro chief E Sreedharan, film stars Amitabh Bachchan, Rajnikant, Shahrukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai and sportspersons Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar can be counted as most influential Indians. But if you ask me Sonia Gandhi I count as the most influential Indian though she is not of Indian origin. Why else she would have been the most powerful and influential leader in India?

Shabana Azmi.

Shabana Azmi Invited By Prince Charles to Buckingham Palace

June 20, 2008

Actor and social activist Shabana Azmi along with husband Javed Akhtar have been invited as Prince Charles personal guests to Buckingham Palace, England.

Along with her, industrialists Mukesh Ambani, Laxmi Mittal and Ratan Tata have also been invited.

Asked about the motive behind this royal opportunity, she said: It is essentially to discuss long-term India-Britain relations with regard to charitable causes. Well deliberate on how to further charitable links between the two countries.

That would include closer collaboration between the Ratan Tata Trust and the Prince Charles Trust. Lets see how it goes, said Shabana
