I’ll tell you a secret.
I read newspaper only because it gives me lot of content for this blog. My critics ( I feel terribly great and top of the world after writing those two words “my critics”) have pointed out that I should stop telling the world what is right and what is wrong and instead, do an introsepction.
Back to the topic. India has awarded Padma Shri honor to Smt. Aishwarya Bachchan and Shri. Akshay Kumar.
For the uninitiated, look here [Source Wikipedia]:
Padma Shri (also spelt Padma Shree, Padmashree, Padma Sree and Padma Sri) is an award given by the Government of Indiagenerally to Indian citizens to recognize their distinguished contribution in various spheres of activity including the Arts, Education, Industry,Literature, Science, Sports, Social Service and public life. (The word “Padma” (Sanskrit) means “Lotus”.)
So, going by the trend; every movie star will receive Padma Shri at some point in their career. No problem so far. Let’s read the definition again; especially these two words from the definition: “Distinguished Contribution”. Now, I have no doubts about Akshay Kumar’s acting skills [I could judge that from Trailors of ‘Chandani Chowk To China’]. Also, I’m not going to comment on Smt. Aishwarya Bachchan’s contribution to Arts & Social Service.
If their’s is “distinguished contribution”, I’m sure I’ll be awarded Padma Shri too. It’s just matter of time, folks. Watch me.
