    Is it Boris Yelstin the former Russian President?

    My vote is for Sidney Sheldon for giving me an escape route at least for a few hours from this bad bad world made worse by the below in the options....;-)

    Yeltsin .....didn't do enough

    Sippy .....brought more graphic violence to indian movies

    Bhutto.....takes the cake the mother of taliban (see her tranformation from a fashion plate to hijab wearing fundamentalist under whose PM'ship pakistan was one of the only 3 countries to recognise Taliban government in Afghanistan)



    among the others (option) i would like to bring to life all the innocents(bystanders) who lost their life in Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Israel and the world over....

    I would say..nobody from this list! Those who are gone, had their chance to live & did what they can in their own ways. Now, T's time for New..someone else..chance for new spirits..new ways.

    So Long to Those who are Gone..
    Welcome to those who has yet to get a chance
    Happy New Year ...in advance..

    i Think Every Soul Knows Its End Still Smile And Wave, Even Rajeev Gandhi Knew That The End Is Around, But Yes Given A Chance I Would Defenitely Want Bhutto To Live A Little More If She Could Bring About A Change In The Attitude Of Pakistan Which May Influence Our Relations World Wide And Improve The Mental State Of That Land And Curb Terrorism, United States Or No But Still A Leader Has The Power To Do So, And Musharaf Fails In All Line Here, Terrorism Has Increased A Lot And So Many Mosques Are Blasted. More Hooligans Than Enlightened Souls There..sunkan

    In the poll we have been given a choice "others".
    I would like an Indian by birth but a British by citizenship to be brougt back alive.I am talking about Bob Woolmer, the great cricket coach
    Bob was one of the most decent men in cricket. He would never have anything to do with match-fixing and I don't think he'd ever be a whistleblower on the corruption in cricket." For Bob, cricket and the players always came first.
    He was a man of honesty, integrity and kindness."
    He managed through encouragement, support and friendship. He was last man to fall out with his players .

    Kanaka,Why do you say so? Pl. don't think i am talking philosophy. Actually I didn't like the thread at all. Agreed, all of us know it's not humanly possible to revive a dead soul.

    The very discussion of such topics makes me feel we are just making mockery of HIM- that force which makes the entire cosmos revolve. Perhaps you would all say "Come on why take such things so seriously. Don't try to make mountain out of a mole.

    I think these tendencies are due to the Ahamkara at our subconscious level. Suppose if I try to be expert in an area where I have no say, how will people react? Won't I be labelled - -- - --- - -. My little experience and little reading makes me feel we will face the same reaction from that thing or power or force. name it the way you want. Dear don't take this as a retotrt or even hurt. I can very well empathise with your feeling. My condolence to you and your family.

    These is the reason why I gave the reply-Let things take its natural course. Dear it can happen to me too. But I felt we should not trespass the limits of maryada.

    May your father's soul rest in Peace. kanaka

    Hi Ilites,

    Bhutto would be my #1 choice, as she was seriously contemplating to have a change of power in Pakistan. Whatever happens to Pakistan, the animousity between India and Pakistan is not going to go away, but some hope to India to feel a bit relieved until the new Pak Govt kicks in with new set of policies towards India for better relationship.

    :cheers Geeth Priya.
