BANGALORE: How do we define power? Does it mean to have dominance over a set of people or does it mean taking the lead? Power has always been easier to recognize than to define. Isn’t it?


The world once witnesses a powerful leader like Adolf Hitler, who defined power as dominance of one and suppression of the other. The period during cold war has seen two powerful nations who had the strong military and industry. Soviet Union eventually lost to the powerful growth of Information Technology.


It is however politically defined as resources, demographics, territory and economic assets. Whatsoever it is defined as, the bottom line is that power means get things done. One must seek power to achieve certain objectives. As we have seen power meant different things in different times of our history. So power evolves as per changing times. From Europe to Soviet Union and then to United States, now to Asia- that’s when we discover that the world is shifting towards the emerging sources of power. It is therefore important to take a keen look at various aspects of power in today’s scenario. Forbes has taken the initiative to make a logical comprehension of important aspects of power.
