The Kasab Saga
Punish him. Release him. Hang him. Extradite him to Pakistan. Let him write his autobiography. Make a Bollywood film on his life. Give him all the kebabs he wants. Whatever! Let’s get it over with and move on…
Andhra Pradesh Imbroglio
In 2009 YSR died in a plane crash. Then there was the Telangana crisis and the Tiwari tapes bang at the end of the year. I think the state deserves some nice peace and quiet this year. Needed is a firm hand from the Centre.
Swine Flu Alarm
Let’s just treat this like any other disease, please!
Commonwealth Games Drama
OK, here’s one that will come true! The Commonwealth Games are ending in October 2010. (Unless it goes to England at the last moment and we host it in 2014. Delhi will collapse under the controversy. Or maybe a new long-drawn controversy will begin after the Games end. Sigh!)
Vajpayee went. Advani is gone. Rajnath is gone. OK, can we begin a new chapter and have a sane two-party system in the country again? Let’s see how the Nitin Gadkari-Sushma Swaraj duo fare vis-a-vis their own partymen in 2010.

Pak-US buddy-buddy statements
Pakistan is our best friend in the fight against terrorism and we are paying them x-billion dollars. Yawn!
The R word
Hope Recession well and truly ends by the end of 2010 and we generally have some good economic news.
Over the top TV News
I think this is too much to ask for. It will probably get worse in 2010.
Isn’t Nicolas Sarkozy the President of France and Carla Bruni the First Lady? Isn’t Silvio Berlusconi the Prime Minister of Italy? They’re political leaders right? Then why do I keep reading more of their personal lives? And why is the Indian media bothered anyway?
