    DFI heroes and villains of 2009.

    The year is now on its last lap. It was an eventful year. The war on terrorism is on. And so are the attacks from the terrorists. On one side there was effort from powerful nation to scare its neighbour. On the other side new happenings in relation among nations. Somewhere there was effort from persons or organizations for great humanitarian cause. Some people came in news for spreading hatred .Someone excelled in sports or Arts, someone caught for corruption. We have to choose ‘best and worst’ from them. Please nominate 10 persons or organizations (not necessarily Indian) in both categories. Please don’t get into argument about names prescribed by others. Just give your list with brief explanation (if possible) supporting it. I proposed to keep this thread open till third week of December and names of those heroes and villains getting maximum entries by members will be declared as DFI heroes and villains of year 2009.

    2009 was an eventful year for India. We see the return UPA back to power. Success for Chandrayan, our first mission to moon. There were no major terror attacks apart from few horrible attacks in Assam.

    Motivating moments for India.

    1.Defense Forces, Paramilitary forces of India.

    2.Salute to the Citizens of India (especially Mumbai). There was no communal tension in 2009 even after what we saw in 26/11.

    3.ISRO. For making all of us proud with Chadrayan mission.

    4.As I am from Orissa, it feels great to see our CM Naveen Patnaik back to power again. I hope he will wipe out the corrupt Congress in 2014 election.

    5.Reliance’s KG gas/oil started flowing. Crain India also started oil production from Rajasthan. It will help us saving a lot of foreign exchange.

    6.A jam packed Ambedkar stadium during Nehru Cup football final. Nice to see people came in support of other sports. But still a long way to go.

    7.Thanks to Pranab Mukherjee , RBI and all the decision makers in Ministry of Finance . They made all the right decisions and we are back on track now.

    8.A R Rahman for winning the Oscar and nominated for Grammy awards. But this is not his best music.

    Now the big let downs

    1.Ministry of sports and CWC committee for being on news for all the wrong reasons.

    2.Former Chief Minister of Maharashtra (VilashRao Deshmukh) and former home minister of Maharashtra (R R Patil) back to power again.

    3. UP CM Mayawati (Behenji) for wasting public money.

    4.Mamata Banerjee. WB missed a good opportunity as TATA moved out.

    5.Indo –US nuclear deal. Barack Obama is a good speaker. But there was more lip service than movement on ground.

    6.India electronics Media.

    It seems we need option of choosing 10 heroes and 30 villains. Even after putting 10 names I felt I am missing many elegible candidates. But while naming the heroes I had to ponder a lot.
