I will go for

A R Rahman - for opening new windows to Indian music , one of the best in the world, which has not recieved its due response and treatment so far.

Suganthi - a unknown 19 year old tamil teacher who sacrificed her life in her rescue operations to save the school children who drowned in lake in vedharanyam this november. she had all oppurtunities to come out of the lake, indeed she saved 5 plus kids. The irony is that when her daed body was recovered, it was found that her hands were tightly clinching the heads of two kids.... my salaam for her.
P Chidambaram - became home minister in a tough period when India was in the midst of riots- his approach towards maoists, arabinda rajkhowa,LTTEs were impeccable and adorable.

I want to appreciate the ambitious team of ISRO , for their incredible achievements with chandrayaan .. my salutes to them.
