WILL the PADMAs BE AWARDED TO THE REALLY DESERVING ONES ON 26th JAN, 2011?

Can we, this India of 1.25 billion people, hope, at least, the price of the papers and medals/plaques has not become astronomically high to mislead P Chidambaram or the Indian Home Ministry or the Indian Government into not recognizing the CINE-STAR DHARMENDRA; JUG SURAIYA, BACHI KARKARIA, M J AKBAR, SWAMINATHAN S ANKLESARIA AIYAR [All TOI Columnists], SWAMI AGNIVESH AND BABA RAMDEV AND OTHER REALLY DESERVING CHILDREN OF MOTHER INDIA in the 26th January, 2011 list of PADMASHREES/VEBHUSHHANNS for outstanding contribution made by all of these to Mother India?


Although the Times of India Foundation was liberal enough to have given an award for literary achievements to Mr Veerappa Moiley, the Union Law Minister in the Manmohan Singh cabinet, it remains to be seen how far the Manmohan Singh Government itself is fair towards the WELL-DESERVING COLUMNISTS of the Times Of India…?


Before you feel tempted to say – Swaamee Jee, you are endorsing the names of others for the PADMA simply to get an endorsement for your own self, Let me make it clear – I have no such intention on a conscious or sub-conscious level. Well, I cannot say anything about my unconscious-level or the supreme consciousness! In any case, I have gone beyond the awards and rewards…! I have recommended some of these deserving children of the MOTHER INDIA may be because IT WAS MY KARMA TO DO SO…!


Also, I have no personal vested interests in making the above-mentioned recommendations…!


One only hopes that this time around the ill-will-breeding incident of the last year’s chatwal episode is not repeated. One only hopes that the recommendations for the Padma this year are really for the deserving ones. Otherwise, this shall become another feather of failures in the governance-political-cap of the already fumbling UPA-II…!


As a rule, it is suggested humbly those in political power currently, must not be given any Padmas. Why? Well, it involves the conflict of interests…!
