Govindarajan was the highest ranked among the Indian-origin management gurus on the list. The other Indians on the list are Pankaj Ghemawat, Nirmalya Kumar, Nitin Nohria, Subir Chowdhury, Anil K Gupta and Rakesh Khurana, in that order.

Govindarajan had won the Thinkers50 CK Prahalad Breakthrough Idea Award in 2011. This year he won the Innovative Thinking Award.

“I owe my current position to my grandfather’s tireless devotion to my education,” he wrote in an email to HT.

The 2013 rankings were announced at a glitzy ceremony in London. Gupta is the new entrant in this year’s list.

“I hope that this trend of domination by Indian-origin thinkers will continue as long as India maintains high quality on its educational institutions like what I got at IIT Kharagpur in late eighties,” said Chowdhury.
