Before we take a ‘Sneek-Peek’ at “PROSPECT Nominations for 2011 PADMA Awards”,India’s highest civilian awards, lets do some home work on “What are PADMA Awards?”
Padma Awards, India’s highest civilian awards, are conferred in three categories, namely, Padma Vibhushan, Padma Bhushan and Padma Shri.
The awards are given in all disciplines/ fields of activities, viz. art, social work, public affairs, science and engineering, trade and industry, medicine, literature and education, sports, civil service, etc.
‘Padma Vibhushan’ is awarded for exceptional and distinguished service; ‘Padma Bhushan’ for distinguished service of high order and ‘Padma Shri’ for distinguished service in any field.
I am sure you all must be now aware of the shortlisted receivers of PADMA Award 2010 by now.
Lets take a quick look at Prospect Nominations for 2011 PADMA Awards! ( I know its too early,but pls bear with me..)
Category A: Civil Service
1>Our Beloved S.P.S Rathore: How can we miss the contribution of this “gentleman” who rendered Excellent “Civil Service” by molesting a budding tennis player,Ruchika 20 years ago,made her family and brother go through HELL and also abetted her suicide.
He also had the tendency of keeping this a “Secret for 20 years”!! Come on… Can you keep a secret for 20 years??!!
2>Sub Inspector(oops,i forgot his name.. or was it mentioned anywhere in the news?),who single-handedly took 3 Pakistani Terrorists for Picnic to Delhi and “FORGOT” to bring them back!
Category B : ART
What do you call this goof up? A “Wardrobe Malfunction?!”
Category C : Public Affairs
1>Ajmal Kasab: He is an undoubted winner in this category! He definitely deserves this award for playing “Bade Dilwaala” (Great Hearted Person) and “Sheltering” hostages for more than 50 hours.
Does anyone have the “nerve” to kill more than 200 people,demand for Urdu Dossier,Chicken Biryani and Tv in prison and still not be punished yet??!! Man! You’ve got GUTS!
2>Union ministry of women and child development (WCD) for publishing the photo of former PAK Chief with our “Honourable” Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress president Sonia Gandhi in a half-page newspaper advertisement on the National Girl Child Day!
Can we call this a goof-up? a mistake? or a small step towards “INDIA-PAK Aman”??!!
3>CBI and Congress Party: for postponing the verdict of captured terrorist,Ajmal Kasab for more than 14 months now and wasting crores of rupees on his security(wonder where was this money all these days which could have been utilised for upliftment of poor!) ,also wasting the time and testing the patience and tolerance of Citizens of India!
Wonder if my grandchildren have the privilage of seeing Kasab Alive one day!
Category D: Literature and Education
1>H.D Deve Gowda: For swearing at Yediyurappa(Karnataka’s CM) and “imparting Literature Knowledge” on the use of some “Profane Words” which went “Beep.. Beep..Beep” everytime the footage was shown by media and mentioned in newspapers!
All,I can say … “What an Education”!! Even Books could not have imparted us better than him!
1>IPL 3 Team Owners: for conveniently skipping Pakistan Players by citing reasons of “Non-Availability” and portraying “Patriotism”!!
Way to go Bollywood! Can we have one more “Patriotic Video” on this??
1>The doctor who performed tests on bones and teeth of Ajmal Kasab and concluded that Kasab was not a minor and he should not be tried in Juvenile Court.
This amazing verdict helped the CBI to resume with the case and the case refuses to Cease even after 14 months!
I actually forgot this doc’s name.. If he was already awarded “PADMA” this year, he is still eligible for 2011 as we are dead sure this case would not be closed by then!
Category G: Engineering
1>Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL)- for dragging the project of “Namma Metro”,Bangalore’s Mass-Transit Rail system for 4 years and still leaving it unfinished.
Do these people know that Delhi already has a Metro Rail System??!!
Well,this is all I can think of now,more will be updated shortly!
