While fighting terrorists, some deaths are more important than others. So Shashank Shinde of the Mumbai Police who died on 26/11 was awarded a lesser prize than the others who fought the same terrorists at the same time.

Presumably the government has a "quota" for awards.

The government in its wisdom, also completely bypassed the two boxers from Haryana (Sushil Kumar and Vijendra)who got Olympic 2008 Bronzes.

But Aisharway Rai, gets a Padma Shri, for completely unkown reasons. Harbhajan Singh, diito.

Fighting terrorists to death , Inspector Shinde, is not enough

For the country's award, you need connections and stuff,
If you're pretty, shake in movies,, and mostly smile,
They'll give you a Padma Shri award after a while,

And for Olympic Bronze winners, its even more tough.....

  1. Dont think talent is really a criteria for these awards....u just shud be there in limelight for a while, market yourself well...and few years time...u have the award.
    They r as meaningless as those Lifetime achievement awards for movies. U really dont have do be an exceptional actor....all u need is just hang in there...without dieing & one day u will get it !


Some like prose and some like verse,
Enjoy these lines that we disburse,
We do the stuff in fun,
And should you not like one,
Please feel free, below, to curse ......
