Don’t tell me that you’re not livid about this year’s Padma awards!
Why? Should I be livid?

Some very obvious choices have been left out and strange names given the award.
Like?

Well, I think that Rakhi Sawant should have been given a Padma. She makes real Indian women feel confident.
That’s a bit much isn’t it?

Is it? And why has Newsweek’s Fareed Zakaria got a Padma Bhushan? Do the Americans give any of us living here a Pulitzer?
Hmm. Point. You okay with that Chatwal fellow getting a Padma Bhushan?

Well, the CBI had chargesheeted him for defaulting on loans from the State Bank of India and other
public sector banks.

So you think he should have been given a political party ticket and not only a Padma?
Absolutely!

Do say: Padma Bhushan should get a Padma Lakshmi.
Don’t say: What are you saying! There’s no award money?
