Time magazine picks the 100 most interesting people post #1  quote:



Manmohan Singh, Hu Jintao join Bush in Time magazine's list

(PTI News) New Delhi, Apr 10 : Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Chinese President Hu Jintao and North Korean leader Kim Jong II have been named by 'Time' magazine as among the 100 most influential people of the world along with US President George W Bush and Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice.

The 'Time 100' list, featured in the latest issue of the magazine, also includes Tibetan leader the Dalai Lama, former US President Bill Clinton, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Palestinian leader Mahmood Abbas, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, African National Congress President Thabo Mbeki and US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

An article in the magazine on Prime Minister Singh by Nobel laureate Amartya Sen says "the man in the blue turban, despite his great success, has remained approachable and ready to listen and instinctively sympathetic to the underdogs of society."

Some interesting names in the list include Al Qaeda terrorist Abu Mousab al-Zarqawi, possible successor to the papacy Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger and Dina Astita, an Indonesian teacher who survived the December 26 Tsunami waves and has been elected to coordinate the effort to restart schooling in her town Calang.

Of the 100 politicans, revolutionaries, businesspersons, actors, artists, scientists and heroes on the list, 49 are from North America, 19 from Europe, 12 from Asia, eight from the Middle-East, four from Africa and eight from the rest of the world, a release issued by 'Time' magazine said today.

Is it the most interesting people of 2004, or of all time?

Anyone have the whole list?
Is the Pope in it? Paris Hilton?

I have not seen the whole list either, even thought it was big news here, mainly becasue Gordown Brown the Chancelor for the UK made the list but Tony Blair the Prime Minister did not, (I can understand that even if others cant), I think the pope did make the list but I am not 100% sure. I guess someone will have to buy Time so we can find out.

Manmohan Singh was influential, yes, as Finance Minister during the 1990s when India crawled out of bankruptcy and opened it's markets to the World. But I am sorry to say that he completely ineffectual as Prime Minister. He is as spineless as the rest of the government and doesn't have even a modicum of courage that his predecessor Atal Bihari Vajpayee had. I would hardly rate Manmohan Singh as being 'influential' or 'powerful' for the year 2005.

Paris Hilton? I don't find her interesting at all. I wouldn't put her on an interesting list. Maybe a butt implant waiting list....
