You have been chosen DNA sportsperson ahead of players like MS Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh, Sania Mirza, Jeev Milkha Singh, Narain Karthikeyan…
It feels very nice to win a poll where people support you. I would like to thank your readers and wish them all the best in 2008.

What is your chosen moment of Indian sport in 2007?
Winning Mexico.

How do you look forward to 2008?
It will be a tough year. Some tournaments in the first half and the match with Vladimir Kramnik in the second half.

It will be yet another World championship year. Your thoughts?
Yes. I will first concentrate on my events till March and then start work on Kramnik.

Finally, any thing you think you need to conquer?
To win DNA sportsperson of the year in 2008 by winning in October would be nice.
