Back in the ol’ days, they used to give Padma Shri and Tamrapatra awards for real achievements.
Now, the Government of India has started bestowing awards merely for the accident of being born with the right sequence of DNA or right genes, which we presume ultimately decide how you look.
How else can you explain giving Aishwarya Rai Bachchan – one of the worst actresses on Planet Earth – the Padma Shri under the category of Art.
What a disgrace.
At this rate, the Government of India will soon be handing out Padma Shris to the Mumbai terrorists for population control.
Mera Bharat Mahan.
