India is the most important county most westerners know the least about — a reflection in part on the Eurocentrism of establishment media which follows every twist and turn of European politics but only looks at India when something blows up.From the Indian Express comes a list of the ten most powerful people in India today. Three of them are women and one is the fourth-richest man in the world. My advice: read the list and remember the list.Students especially take note: plenty of people in your generation are studying Mandarin and preparing for China-linked careers. It makes sense — but India is an equally vast opportunity, and many fewer people are thinking about it. Study India, learn one of the important Indian languages, visit India and hang out with Indian expats and Indian students in your school.You can steal a march on the competition and prepare yourself for a rewarding career. You will also have fun and eat some excellent food.
