On 25th of January 2005, the govenment of India declared the & the “Padma” awards – and yours truly, The Big K, spotted stupidity yet again. I sometimes wonder how easy it is to spot stupidity. Well, the purpose of this blog is to spot stupidity & make the common man aware of it. I’m not saying that the common man is unaware of this stupidity, but it feels good when someone (me) takes pains to write it down for the reference of our future generation. I hope that they will learn a lot from these records.

Hopefully, one day, we’ll eleminate stupidty from the good world. Okay, back to the topic. Go through this post on Rediff.com –

Now most of the entries are obvious, few were unexpected. Viz. Madhuri Dixit, Sunita Williams, Vikram Pandit, Manoj Night Shyamalan. If anyone among the readers of this blog knows about the criteria of getting nominated for these awards, please let me know.

Or is it simply – ‘The Fame’? Or is it that the value of these awards has gone down that anyone with fame & probably money can get these awards? Media continues to ‘make stories’, common man is indifferent.

What’s going on?
The Big K
