E. Sreedharan, who has been awared public service person of the year award cbnibn...the man know for his integrity and honesty ..who made it possible for the trains that run through the ratnagiri area...when many said it was an impossible task..he went in for public bonds and made it a possible dream... To know more about him...He deferred retirement in 1998 to become managing director of India’s Delhi Metro Rail Corp., taking charge of a $2.3-billion effort to build the first phase of New Delhi’s massive metro system. . Sreedharan is credited with single-mindedly knocking down the many obstacles that have bedeviled other large Indian projects. This tough Indian manager cut through the country’s notorious red tape, employed global best practices and adopted safety steps not common in Indian construction. Much more than a figurehead, Sreedharan isn’t finished yet. He is 74 I think...when lot of people of his age think of retiring and enjoying life , he is striving for a better india... he was the top 25 newsmaker in 2005...and also top runner for asian person of the year that year... How I wish he does the same for chennai... Once again hats of him :hatsoff:hatsoff.
