Re: Selling Padma awards (The highest Civilian Award of India) either as honour or consolation prize?
Yes I do agree there should be a investigation on these awards...as these awards money is been contributed by public tax money to the government.
I agree with others who have raised a finger at the selection ofawardee of Padma. I go a step further and state that why Padma, all the awards and sops that are given has a price tag and also strong lobby that works in favour of the person to be selected.
The wrestler and boxer who won medals for the country in Olympics are not considered and many of those who have achieved much less than them but are from rich families have managed to find their names in the list of awardee.
The need is to make a selection system in which there must be some minimum criteria. Selling faces is too much.
