Award Committee

Award Committee

"Dear members of award committee, being the chairman of this selection committee its my duty to honor the talented people for their contribution to their respective field. This is the list I have made after your recommendations. Please feel free to discuss if you have any doubts so that I can forward a final list to the ministry." The conference room came alive after announcement by the chairman. 

All members started reading the names on the list, it was their responsibility to give a fair decision to keep nation's faith in these prestigious civilian awards. After reading the list there were discussions on some names, they added few to the list and deleted some from it. Finally after two hours all members were satisfied with the outcome. They gave a nod to chairman to announce these names to the ministry. The final list soon reached the PMO for Prime Minister's approval. PM after approving the list send an appreciation letter to the committee.

' Dear members of the committee, I am happy with your work. I am satisfied that after weeks of deliberation you finally zeroed down the name similar to the list send by my office to you at the time of formation of this committee. By doing this task some of you also qualified for next years Padma award list. Thanks again Best of luck for the future.'

All members of the committee were proud of their sycophancy after hearing this letter from the PM. They have done the job given to them. Chairman was on cloud nine, he was sure of Padma Award next year. ' Sycophancy is the best trait to get these awards,' he said to himself and dismissed the committee. 

Note :  Above scene is an imaginative reconstruction of what I think happens in Padma Award committee looking at the awardees each year. 


  1. I agree with you sometimes I also think that everything here is fixed. Not only these the movie awards too. It has taken the charm away from awards.

  2. Absolutely. These are political rewards given to favorites, with few exceptions. I don't watch filmy awards on TV. There's no class or dignity...only Nautanki and cheap jokes.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

Braid Cutting - Truth or Rumors?

Braid Cutting - Truth or Rumor?

Mysterious braid (choti) cutting incidents has happened in Rajasthan, Haryana and Delhi where women mostly around 50 years of age has their braids cut without their knowledge by some invisible source causing fear among women in these areas. Women also fell unconscious during the time of braid cutting which left them clueless about the attacker and made the incident mysterious. Police who have recorded the statements of victims deny any black magic involved in this which is rumored in the video circulated in social media groups. They are asserting that some miscreants are behind the incident.
The video allegedly claims that a woman is on a mission to cut 1008 women braids in order to get invisibility power according to a black magic ritual. I heard this news around a month ago from someone whose relatives live in Rajasthan. The incident was not in news at that time, I denied him saying that these are rumors or acts of miscreants and I still believe miscr…

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow

Lucknow is known as The City of Nawabs the royal ruler of the city which gave it culinary & cultural identity like the way of talking I noticed while interacting with the people. The place is beautiful and has many things which can attract tourists to visit this city but I don’t find it tourist friendly as I observed in the other cities I visited like Agra,Jaipur, Dehradun,etc. As we came out of the station, there were no tourist autos or taxis available for city sightseeing thus left you unaware of what to do.
If we haven’t researched about the places and things to eat we couldn’t explore the city the way we did.

With our knowledge of places to visit and to eat, we first hire a bus bust to the Chowk area where we found Rahim’s Hotel for famous RAHIM KI NIHARI-KULCHA. Nihari is a breakfast non-vegetarian dish available in both Buffalo & Goat meat. Its taste was totally different from what I have tested it in Delhi and the Kulcha was he…
