The year that was!!

This year belongs to the power of people, power of social networking, sports persons and in many ways it was a year of India.

Because of public pressure a lot of corrupt leaders had to go & Government was forced to start investigation for mega scams. It was the people who made Commonwealth Games a success. Without thousands of volunteers it wouldn't have been so successful after the corruption fiasco. At the end it was the people who also awarded some good leaders like 'Nitish' to set up a new trend in Indian politics.

It was a year where we also witnessed the power of social networking sites. A lot of businessmen, media persons and bureaucrats were caught red handedly in the bad game of lobbying & corruption. Be it Wikileakes, Radia tapes leakes or leaks of different secret Gov. reports, all exposed these Hippocratic false Icons.

 India marched ahead in the field of sports too. The great show continued in Commonwealth and Asiad. Saina made 2010 a year to remember. Saina Nehwal continued her giant strides, with five international titles to become the world number two as Indian badminton rode on her success. Advani's Asiad gold was high point for cuesports in 2010. And who can forget an outstanding year for sachin?? Iconic Indian batsman, who became the only cricketer in history to have scored 50 Test tons, emerged runaway winner over Don Bradman in a poll commissioned by an Australian newspaper on who is the best batsman of all time. 

Almost all world leaders toured India from Obama to Xiabao, from Russian President to German President. It was first time in history that all P5 national leaders toured India in a single year. This shows the growing stature on India in the world. thus making this year a completely a year of India.
