Why should public money and national awards be distributed to cricketers / film stars etc
It is shameless and shocking to pay such huge amts, give awards or give such publicity to any one and last to players and films personalities. What have they done for common men, downtrodden, patients, poor, sufferers, undernourished children, farmers committing suicide, illiteracy, national development. Rather they have wasted electricity which is scarce, they are the reasons of trillions of man hour lost, spoiling of education of students and spreading menace of gambling, betting, promoting a life style products which cant be afforded by 90% of Indians who are suffering at the hands of politicians and bureacrtas. Like we have chosen a vocation they have chosen cricket or film as a vocation and that's it. If you need any entertainment of that sort go buy a ticket and enjoy but for havens sake do not make them heros/leaders/sought after (only mad do it and they are available in big lots and in plenty) and last which they deserve is any award except their own filmi or sports award but not at all a national award which can only be given to one who does sacrifices tan, man and dhan for the nation or does something for common man. It is a shame that people forget great people like Vinoba Bhave who did so much for landless labourers and want land and FSI grabbers like Shahrukh, Sachin, Amitabh to get Bharat Ratna.
We forget those who built charitable schools, hospitals, various institutions which have helped us day in and day out, those who worked for cancer, HIV, handicapped, senior citizens etc and we want sachin to get an award??? What namak harami. We forget those who did so much for us, for community and nation at large and want to reward those playing for self. Let sachin do something for common man and then we will see whether he desrves any Bharat Ratna or not??
