Poll : Who's the Indian of the year 2007?

5 Responses

The year 2007 was a year full of events for India - good as well as bad. Many Indians/Indian Organisations made their marks in the form of good business men, or sportsmen, or actors. Maybe, 2007 is the luckiest year for Indians, who are on their way to conquer the world. But who is the best? Please cast your votes on the right. If you think someone else deserved the credit, you can add your opinion in the opinions page....

  1. Dr.R Pachauri
    He won the Noble Peace prize for for his notable work on policies dealing with climate change and global warming. He shared the nobel prize with former US Vice-president Al Gore. Born in Nainital, India, he completed his Industrial Engineering from North Carolina University. He headed many big companies before being elected as the chief of IPCC.

  2. Ratan Tata
    He catapaulted Tata Steel to the 5th position from 56th! He achieved this by the takeover of Anglo-Dutch steel manifacturer Corus for around USD 11 billion. Tata is the chairman of Tata group, which consists of many companies ranging from manifacture of fertilizers to manifacture of automobiles. And yes, he will be launching the much awaited Rs. 1 lakh car in January,2008.

  3. Team India
    They stunned the whole cricket world after clinching the the first Twenty20 World Cup, after defeating Pakistan in the final match. But the most important thing is, they did this without a coach and amidst criticism from all sides after their humiliating exit from the ICC Cricket World Cup. ALso, the good thing is, all players contributed equally in this victory, which is unlikely most of the times.

  4. Vikram Pandit
    He stunned the world after being elected as the chief of CitiGroup, the international conglomerate which includes banking and other financial services. Born in Nagpur, India, he was the former board member of Nasdaq. He also was the president investment and banking section of of Morgan Stanley. CitiGroup ranks 6th in the Fortune 500 list and market capitalization of more than 250 billion dollars.

  5. BSE Sensex
    The Bombay Stock Exchange continued its upward trend which started in mid 2006. It closed above twenty thousand points, which is double than last year's ten thousand. Many so called 'analysts' said that the Sensex would undergo severe losses due to corrections and government policies. But BSE proved them wrong and bulled theough the 20000 mark. The index is also the world's biggest index with over 800 companies listed.

  6. The Ambani Brothers
    After splitting their empire last year after their father's, Dhirubhai Ambani's death, Mukesh and Anil Ambani,have literally doubled their wealth. Maybe, they split their empire just to double it and also gain some media attention. Now, their shares have doubled, their services have improved, and at one point, Mukesh was the world's richest man surpassing even Bill Gates! Now, the brothers are the world's richest.

  7. Amitabh Bachchan
    The Star of the Millenium is even more ambitious now. He is still India's favourite. The 65 year old's stunning performances include Black, which was specially made for the Oscars. but unfortunately, it wasn't nominated. Even at this age, he continues to maintain his charm. You'll find him in most of the films, and advertisements. He restarted his career after his company ABCL incurred severe losses. ANd from then on, there was no looking back.

These were some of the most influential Indians. If you have anyone else on your mind, you are free to post your opinion.....

Frankly speaking, businessmen, sportspersons and othere celebs are just a show off; the real heroes are the soldiers who protect India from all the sides and even from inside.

You have great blog here! And wish you have a Happy New Year!
