Power is defined as the ability to influence people and events. By that yardstick, The Indian Express power list 2012 shows power is more variable than ever before. These changes were what the jury looked at when they got down to the tough job of picking the 100 most powerful people in a country of 1.2 billion.

Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev
Spiritual leader

WHY
Urbane and sophisticated, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev combines spirituality with contemporary concerns. The jet-age guru drives through the Himalayas at 135 km/h. He is one of the new generation gurus who doesn’t carry the baggage of religion. His non-religious, not-for-profit, public service Isha Foundation’s work in afforestation has been successful in planting hundreds of thousands of saplings so far.

POWER PUNCH
Initiated by Isha Foundation, Project GreenHands, which aims to plant a total of 114 million saplings, remains the biggest such organised effort in India.

WHAT NEXT
The guru corporate India listens to will focus on his ambitious plan, Action for Rural Rejuvenation.

BY THE WAY
He turns up at places where you least expect a spiritual guru—the World Economic Forum, the Australian Leadership Retreat, TEDIndia and Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth.

Sadhguru's selection may be on  the basis of influencing the people and activities, events conducted by them for their dedicated and unselfish service and benefit of people and society at large.  I too, like his way of looking the people and their qualities and potentiality.  Pranams to the Sadhguru

Sadhguru cannot be classified into this small segment of Most Powerful Indians.  He is a creator himself, the way he conducts himself and his presence reverberates the whole atmosphere, simply overwhelming.  But for shortsighted world, yes we have to put him in the powerful people list.

What about taking lava from the volcano of Galapagos Island, take it to India and try to do an experiment with the soil to see what coulddo. Is just I thougth.
