Voting is on for the Life Insurance Corporation of India sponsored NDTV Indian of the Year 2007 .

Although only one person will be selected Indian of the Year, there are 31 nominees in 7 categories. The categories include Leaders ( read Politicians like Mayawati, Manmohan Singh etc), Sports personalities like Sania Mirza and M S Dhoni, Cinema stars like Rajnikant and Shah Rukh Khan, Global Indians like Indra Nooyi and Arun Sarin, Business tycoons like Mukesh Ambani and Kumaramangalam Birla, folks in Music like Sunidhi Chauhan and the Vishal-Shekar duo. Last but not the least is the category of Unsung Heroes, like the Indian Soldier.

My vote goes to the Indian Soldier. I hope you will vote for him too because he performs a very difficult and in many ways an extremely thankless task. Remember, often it is the Indian Soldier who sacrifices his life so that we can live in peace.Thanks to my friend Rohit Biddappa for pushing me to vote !
