Indian of the Year 2009
Posted by derebail2009 on 17 December 2009
How would one select an Indian of the Year for their achievements in a turbulent year ( 2009 ) It will be an interesting excercise if one considers the choice of candidates. Let me assess the pros and cons of the few eligible candidates and nominate my own selection for the prestigious award being declared by various channels.
Sachin Tendulkar for his stupendous record breaking achievement spanning 20 years in the field of cricket. Highest run getter in test cricket 12877 and still counting. 17178 runs in ODI, thus crossing 30 k mark in both forms of the game. His record may not be so impressive in 20/20 game since he hardly represented in that format. However apart from his powress on cricket he has hardly contributed anything to develop the economy. The feel good factor of his performance is slightly waning among cricket lovers.
NRN, the former chairman of Infosys is another nominee for Indian of the year. His achievement in the IT field has been parexcellance. The job generating phenomenon had waned in IT industry casting a shadow on performance criteria. His establishment of Catamaran seems to be a unique venture to promote enterprenuership. He missed the chance to become the Prez of India almost by a whisker. However his neutral stand on Airport ? withdrawl of stakes in Infosys may be a negative point. He comes close to deserving the award but still misses in my opinion.
Rukshana, the brave lady who killed 2 Pakistani terrorist single handedly and chased out other 3 terrorist with a machine gun deserves the honour in terms of bravery. But her silence in front of the media during 26/11 anniversary despite being the elite cop wing of Kashmir is a real downer.
Amitabh Bachchan was the first on the blogsphere among the acting fraternity. He espoused the cause of lighting village with solar lantern, which is commendable. His entertaining ability at 67 is unsurpassed by anyone, except for Dev Anand. The movies released during the year Delhi-6, Aladin, Paa, Zamanath, Shoe Bite, Rann, Teen Bhatti, are some of the films he has been associated which have released and in post production stage. He misses the bus by a long way.....because of his waning fan following.
Ratan tata's year began with lot of woes, such as re-building Taj after terror attack, hangover of Corus and JLA takeover, Protest against Nano factory in Singur, etc. But he successfully over came the protest by shifting the factory to Gujerat and launched the Nano in 1 lakh plus segment as promised. He managed to throw open the Taj after terror strikes, Hangover of JLA was successfully overcome with launch in India. He managed to create some extra jobs in TCS. Thus he would be ideal aspirant for being awarded the Indian of the year. He is my choice. Do you concur friends ?
