Acording to the first ever entirely scientific poll conducted in India, Sonia Gandhi has figured as the person with the maximum impact in 2005.
Meanwhile, superstar Amitabh Bachchan has been awarded the NDTV Urban Indian of the Year. Big B accepted the award in Goa, where he is celebrating the New Year with his family.
When asked about his reaction on Sonia Gandhi being honoured the Indian of the Year, he told NDTV, â€śI would congratulate her, and if she's been chosen the Indian of the Year, she deserves it. She is heading the party in power and it's because of her that they won the elections. Congratulations.â€ť
