Bharat Ratna – A Prestige!


Bharat Ratna. As I see over many years the politics is involved in the process of awarding the prize.  It has been given to anyone to whom they want to please. Now they are altering the policy to award Sachin Tendulkar. Is it right? How foolish, he has already been given the highest award given to sportsmen – Khel Ratna. Why Bharat Ratna now?   Our Govt. is ready to change the policy for one person. With this modification there is another claim to it, Abhinav Bhindra for winning Olympic Gold. Tomorrow there will be many who put their claim, then the politicians will involve deeply began to think in terms of their vote bank. I have nothing against their contribution to sports, but definitely not Bharat Ratna.

The thing is what contribution they have made to the nation as a whole, what great change they have brought in society, the public, and to the people of India. He had made runs and has earned in crores, is that a contribution to the country. Sports must be kept away from this highest award, unless they made certain contribution. Think of Homy Bhabha, the man who brought atomic energy to India. Today he has made the entire nation proud; it is he who started the first atomic reactor in India. And this permission he sought sending a telegram to Nehru, the man who was socialist at heart. They thought of providing education, food and shelter. Never thought beyond this, had they succeeded in giving education up to tenth standard, we would have produced only laborers. There is Jagadish Chandra Bose, C V Raman and list goes up whose contribution has brought astonishing changes in their respective field, to the science and to the world. Continue reading
