Forbes is out with its list of "the world's 100 most power women" and there are a few South Asians on there. You will see two right in the top 10: Indra Nooyi at #5 and Sonia Gandhi at #6. Toward the rear at Dr. Dina Samar at #92 and Vidya Chhabria at #97. The #1 slot is held, not surprisingly, by Angela Merkel, chancellor of Germany.
You will notice they forgot to put in the right description of Sonia Gandhi on at least one of the listings - she isn't president of India, but president of the ruling Congress Party:
|5||Indra K. Nooyi||Chairman, chief executive, PepsiCo||U.S.|
What do you think? Is this a good list? Post your comments below.
