Print Edition: April 17, 2011

This year's India Today Conclave, the tenth in the series, took place against the backdrop of the natural disasters in Japan that nearly caused a nuclear meltdown, and political upheaval in North Africa and West Asia helped in no small degree by the Internet and social media.

And who did we have as guest speakers? Eminent historian Niall Ferguson, Egypt's opposition leader and Nobel laureate Mohamed ElBaradei, better known for his role at the International Atomic Energy Agency, and the Internet's founder Tim Berners-Lee, among others.

The star of the show was Republican Party leader Sarah Palin, with the likes of Arun Shourie and Jairam Ramesh helping keep alive the domestic debates on corruption and forests versus industry.

The two-day exclusive event had enough takeways for the who's who of India's industrial and political landscapes. We bring you the best from the Conclave.
