Golden South ! and Andhra Pradesh
November 7, 2006 1 Comment
CNN-IBN is celebrating 50 years of Soutern states in India, and running an online poll to find out most popular Andhrite. This list includes famous politicians like NTR, movie actor Chiranjeevi, Sania mirza (I am not sure why she was suddenly so popular), Ramalinga Raju (Satyam Computers), and Satya Saibaba (a spiritual guru) and Mir Usman Ali Khan.
Somehow I felt, this list is very much immatured and IBN is depending too much on movies and latest popularities. I dont understand why on this Mr. Mir Usman Ali Khan will be a popular “Andhrite” ? It was funny.
He was kicked out to form the state “Andhra” itself.
I found only one genuine entry in this list …That is Mr. NTR.
Anyway, You can also cast your vote here… (New windows)
