I got a Padmasree

hahahahahahaha.. :D
The way the prestigious national awards are being distributed freely, the day is not far when even I may bag a Padmasree (or bhushan) for 'whatever' reason!!
Some of the choices these year were baffling to say the least! I agree that some of the choices were proper and apt, but there were others which raised questions. I would not take names here, but if such awards are distributed with so much ease, I have serious doubts on the value quotient. I am equally inquisitive about the quality of judges and panel who nominate and select the awardees.

During the British days,they used to give away special titles to Indians--like-- RAI SAHEB-- only to those who were loyal to the Royalty.
What has changed now?
Have our people got over the colonial system of rule(not governance)?

@BK Chowla, @Prerna, @Varun

Yes, the "patronizing days" are back. I fail to understand the logic. Even if I do not question the credibility of the candidates, I can very well ask.. "Why not SRK? Why not Akki? Why not a certain XYZ?"
Such selections should be such that there's no scope for any eyebrows being raised!! Sadly, that's not the case here..

@Preposterous girl

Don't say "Catchy title"... the way things are moving, some day I might actually bag one.. :P :D
