Gautam Goswami, A true example of oscillating life to the two extremes is no more. He was an IAS officer, TIME Asian hero of 2004, accused in the infamous flood-relief scam passed away on Jan 5, 2009.

A 1991-batch officer(with ID no 01BH042600), Goswami, also an MBBS and MD from BHU. He had received a gold medal for topping the MBBS exam from Benaras Hindu University. He became a hero when he literally put his hand on microphones to prevent the then Union home minister, Lal Krishna Advani, from continuing his speech at an election rally in Patna in 2004. “Sir, your time is up,” the officer told the minister referring to the Election Commission’s model code of conduct which proscribed use of public address system after 10 pm. Later Time magazine also conferred the “Asian Hero” award on Goswami.
