Newsmaker is no one else than Arvind Kejriwal
the unthinkable has materialised in the form of Arvind Kejriwal defeating veteran Congress leader Sheila Dixit and forming a government in Delhi State with the support of his 28 MLAs in the Delhi Assembly.

His promises had appeared to be unimplementable and were dismissed as dream ideals.

But the Aam Aadmi Party which he founded in November 2012 is creating ripples in many parts of the country as the people think that AAP can deliver.

But how long, is yet to be proved.

The people had been disenchanted with corruption, maladministration and general drift of the mainstream politics.

Now the common man has got empowered himself/herself.

Can the intellectuals, the thinking populace gain the support of the grass-roots level ordinary mortals? In Delhi, the AAP has proved it. What about other places? Let us see, in spite of the movements that had arisen in the past like the JP Movement could not be successful.

The accomplishments of Arvind Kejriwal:

2004: Ashoka Fellow, Civic Engagement
2005: 'Satyendra K. Dubey Memorial Award', IIT Kanpur for his campaign for bringing transparency in Government
2006: Ramon Magsaysay Award for Emergent Leadership
2006: CNN-IBN, 'Indian of the Year' in Public Service.
2009: Distinguished Alumnus Award, IIT Kharagpur for Eminent Leadership
2009: Awarded a grant and fellowship by the Association for India's Development.
2010: Policy Change Agent of the Year, Economic Times Awards along with Aruna Roy
2011: NDTV Indian of the Year along with Anna Hazare
2013: CNN-IBN Indian of the Year 2013-Politics
