  1. I found your site on technorati and read a few of your other posts. Keep up the good work. I just added your RSS feed to my Google News Reader. Looking forward to reading more from you.

  2. He’s a great guy. Bigger than everything in that resume to me is that he almost single handedly took India out of it’s pathetic economic situation by giving it LPG a.k.a. Liberalization, Privatization and Globalisation.

    But yeah, quite frankly I’d say the post of Prime Minister doesn’t suit him well. He’s too simple and too honest. Somebody who’s Prime Minister has to be a little well different. He’s a personal favorite of my grandfather because a)He was born in pre partition Pakistan and b) he’s a Sikh.

  3. @ ish:

    yeah and i guess he is too soft too. ..
    like his voice

  4. hey i got this mail a long time before… i.e during second year itself…

  5. Very impressive resume! All gone done the drain though…he’s not suited for politics.

  6. P.S- Just noticed that you’re using WordPress Ninja Comment extension 🙂 Great! I love this script.

  7. @ teky..
    itoo got it earlier..just posting it late
    @ ruhi..
    yes he could have been a professor or a noble prize winner..anything but politician
    i love the script too

  8. The answer is no, ha! He’s done more in a year than most do in a lifetime.

  9. @ monetizethis:

    yeah..may be..but what he has acheived before attracts me more.. i was oblivious of his qualifications earlier

  10. Too Good Man 🙂 do you really need that red color text 😉

  11. oh that color came directly from my mail .. 🙂
    ctrl+c ctrl+V magic 😀

  12. good post :)….read your blog for the first time today….its just fantastic 🙂

  13. The Resume is Outstanding

    But To Your Post “Can You Beat This Resume?”–if i would have beaten this resume then i would not be here…..i would have been at Manmohan Singh’s place and he would have been at my place…
