Aamir khan and Chidambaram among Time’s 100 most influential people in world

Aamir Khan in Time CoverLondon, April 19, 2013: Bollywood actor Aamir Khan and Finance minister Mr Chidambaram have been named by Time magazine among the 100 most influential people in the world in its annual list of global achievers.

Amir’s tv show, ’Satyamev Jayate’, is "part journalism and part talk show" and confronted India’s deepest social ills, from sexual abuse to caste discrimination. Describing Indian politicians Chidambaram as typically being "warm and fuzzy, chronically late and terribly imprecise", Time says Chidambaram, 67, is "detail-oriented, works from 8 to 8 and has a reputation.

The Time 100 list also includes "leaders" Barack Obama and Pope Francis, "pioneer" Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, "titans" Jay-Z and Sheryl Sandberg, "icons" Malala Yousafzai, Aung San Suu Kyi, Michelle Obama, Daniel Day-Lewis, Justin Timberlake and Kate Middleton, and "artists" Jennifer Lawrence and Steven Spielberg.

Glad to see that some well known personalities from India are appearing in the world map as influential people. Mr. Aamir Khan is using his movie fame to make some drastic social changes in the society because whenever the society is deviating from its moral track, there will be a very dangerous crash to be faced with later on. Influential people like him can exert greater pressure to make a better society of peace in between the neighbours through warning about drug abuse-sexual abuse-caste discrimination etc which are society’s time bombs.
