In a fortnight, somebody will become a crorepati. But this is not a reward for participating in a game-show, it is for a noble mission. On October 13, the world will know who the next winner of the Nobel peace prize is. Due to excellent asset management, the peace prize has swelled this year to 10 m kroner or Rs 5 crore. Chances are this year's winner will be an individual as last year the prize was won by an institution, the French organisation Medecins Sans Frontieres, whose personnel have rendered medical service to victims in conflict zones. "But there's much more excitement when an individual wins," says Gunnar Berge, chairman of the Norwegian peace prize committee who'll disclose the winner in Oslo.
