Airtel-NDTV -- Indian of the Year (Also Cross-posted at Indophiles)

Airtel in partnership with NDTV is Running a "Indian of the Year" contest. Participants can vote for their favourite candidate via SMS. The nominees are : Rahul Dravid, Sania Mirza, Amitabh Bachchan,Aishwarya Rai, Sonia Gandhi,Manmohan Singh,L K Advani,Nitish Kumar,Narayana Murthy,S. Manjunath,Aruna Roy,Laxmi Mittal,Sachin Tendulkar.

I am glad to see Manjunath's name among the nominees. Let integrity be rewarded at least posthumously.

To find out who is chosen as the "Indian of the Year", Watch NDTV 24X7 and NDTV Profit on December 31, 2005.


  • I would narrow it down to these three - manjunath, sania mirza and nitish kumar. let us honor people who have told the truth and lais down their lives for it, played hard and offered hope to a forgotten and chaotic land (resp.) May the best person win!

  • @ gormandizer - kenainnu sollarathu ariyaamai. Avanu enna teriyumnu sollararo!!! There is lots more to life than mere thoughts of others. Atleast don't talk about some one, who has already lost his life. "The respect for the deceased" they call it.

    Sorry Cogito - felt had to tell this in this comment.

    But am really happy to know that his name has been put down on it. Its a point of MIND OVER MATTER!!! Those who have it, will appreciate.
