Bharat Ratna

Or, the ball game of politicans

The word controversy had never left India alone, since its inception, and the latest one to add to the list is the country’s highest civilian title, the Bharat Ratna. This time Bharat Ratna had becoming a ball game for the polity of India. As of now, the names of various political and non-political veterans are doing the rounds. This game was kicked off, by L. K. Advani, by nominating Vajpayee for the title. Even the ally of the UPA Government, the DMK, had also suggested their leader Karunanidhi for the title. Moreover, not to forget the history maker, BSP chief, Mayawati, who is the latest to join the ‘Bharat Ratna’ controversy bandwagon. Mayawati had announced that she would ask the PM of India to confer the Bharat Ratna on the BSP founder. While Congress replied BSP with logic that conferring the national title is an apolitical process and should remain so.

The whole essence of the such prestigious award seem to get diluted with such a controversy and nor can Bharat Ratna be handed out, like any chocolate. It must be adhered that the nomination of this title can be a floodgate. The Bharat Ratna is not something which is casually offered, and that’s the reason for its luster and prestige. By convention, the nomination for this ward should be kept confidential to avoid any debate on the nominees.
