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.

  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…

The Masked Life


I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound.

RIP Tom Alter

RIP Tom Alter
I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
