Since independence, India has had three major leaders: Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, and Narendra Modi, according to CNN writer Fareed Zakaria's biography of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. "Narendra Modi (70) is the third, dominating Indian politics like no other," Zakaria wrote.
In her profile, Mamata Banerjee, the Chief Minister of West Bengal, is described as the "face of fierceness in Indian politics". It goes on to state, "Banerjee is the leader of the Trinamool Congress, not the party's leader. Her street-fighter mentality and self-made livelihood in a patriarchal context made her stand out."
According to SII CEO Adar Poonawalla's TIME Magazine feature, "The epidemic isn't finished yet, and Poonawalla might be able to help put a stop to it."
US President Joe Biden, his Vice President Kamala Harris, Chinese President Xi Jinping, former US President Donald Trump, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, are all on the list. Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, a co-founder of the Taliban, was also named to TIME Magazine's list of the "Most Influential People of 2021." Mullah Akhund, the temporary Taliban regime's leader in Afghanistan, has appointed Baradar as his deputy.
