It all started with a curiosity. I was just going through the list of Bharat Ratna awardees where I saw three of the six Nehru-Gandhi family members are in it. Nehru got it in 1955, Indira got it in 1971 and Rajiv got it in 1991. In Home ministry site there is a note which says Bharat Ratna is awarded in recognition of exceptional service/performance of the highest order in any field of human endeavour. The recommendations for Bharat Ratna are made by the Prime Minister himself to the President. Then I checked who the Prime Ministers were in 1955, 1971 and 1991. PMO website claims that Jawaharlal Nehru was the Prime Minister in 1955, Indira was in 1971. That naturally leads to these questions?
- Did Jawaharlal Nehru recommend himself for Bharat Ratna in 1955?
- Did Indira Gandhi recommend herself for Bharat Ratna in 1971?
Although the facts above make it obvious, I sent an RTI to PMO India. It took more than two months for PMO to reply this question. And the answers were these. One of my questions was whether it is the Prime Minister himself who make recommendations of Bharat Ratna. They replied it in affirmative. Then I asked them who got Bharat Ratna in 1955 and 1971. They said Nehru and Indira got it respectively. I further asked who recommended Bharat Ratna for Nehru and Indira and what were their achievements? To this question, they said there are no records for this. Since replies to question 2 and 3 leads to the conclusion that Nehru and Indira recommended themselves for Bharat Ratna – I confirmed my doubts. I have sent another RTI yesterday (23rd November), this time to President Secretariat, where I have asked these questions.
- What were the exceptional service/performance of the highest order by Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi for which they were awarded Bharat Ratna?
- What was the exceptional service/performance of the highest order by Rajiv Gandhi for which he was awarded Bharat Ratna in 1991?
- How many politicians are awarded Bharat Ratna of which how many belong to congress party ?
- Which prime minister recommended name of Indira Gandhi in 1971 for Bharat Ratna
- Which prime minister recommended name of Jawaharlal Nehru in 1955 for Bharat Ratna
- What are the procedure/criteria for recognizing exceptional service/performance of Bharat Ratna Awardees?
Jawaharlal Nehru was associated with freedom struggle. Political differences apart, there is no absurdity in awarding him a Bharat Ratna. But what had Indira Gandhi done till 1971 to be awarded with highest civilian award? PMO in their RTI reply claimed that they have no information available on record about the achievements of Nehru and Indira. I just looked at Biography to find out what were the public services by Indira Gandhi till 1971. Wikipedia says –
- Indira was born in 1917.
- In the 1950s, Indira, now Mrs. Indira Gandhi after her marriage, served her father Jawaharlal Nehru (then Prime Minister) unofficially as a personal assistant.
- After her father’s death in 1964 she was appointed as a member of the Rajya Sabha (upper house) and became a member of Lal Bahadur Shastri’s cabinet as Minister of Information and Broadcasting.
- Indira became Prime Minister in 1966; the Congress was split in two factions.
- Nationalization of Banks
- India Pakistan war in December 1971 (not sure whether recommendations are made before or after 1971 December)
In her public life till 1971, I could not find any single notable achievement by Indira Gandhi. If serving as Prime Minister for a five year term qualifies for the Bharat Ratna award? Then why was not this precedent followed for all the Prime Ministers of India? I am waiting for the reply from President Secretariat which I hope will clear all these ambiguities. Till then we can draw our own conclusions.
Vinod Kambli is known to have said a number of times early in his career that while Sachin Tendulkar ‘took the escalator’ to fame and fortune, Kambli himself ‘took the stairs’.
Kambli hasn’t over the years—since he last played international cricket at 28, going out with a Test average of 54—bothered to address his equally remarkable and rapid descent into obscurity. But he emerged on Thursday to sound off against Tendulkar, accusing the maestro of ignoring him in hisfarewell speech at the Wankhede, and of not inviting him to the grand goodbye party that was the talk of the town.
“Him not mentioning me in his farewell speech or not giving me an invitation though I’ve been a part of his life since he was 10 years old. Yes, I won’t deny the fact that it did hurt me a lot because he forgot to mention that. The world record partnership was a turning point of our career, without each other’s contribution, I wouldn’t be who I am, and he wouldn’t be our great legend,” Kambli told Indian Express.
The reference he made was to the 664-run stand for Sharadashram Vidyamandir between the two former buddies—a legendary partnership that turned the schoolboys into household names inMumbai. Tendulkar soon made his India debut and went from strength to strength. Kambli followed suit a few years later, but influences external to cricket—along with unfortunate injuries—put an end to his career.
Kambli confirmed that things had not been the best between the pair.
Not on talking terms
“We haven’t been talking for the last seven years, but on occasions we do wish each other via text. A lot of people and our fans are asking me as to why he didn’t mention my name in his farewell speech and why wasn’t I invited for the party, which close friends and associates who played an important role in his career were a part of. Only Tendulkar can answer that.
“But still it won’t make my love less for him in any way, irrespective of whether he considers me his friend or not… There are too many precious memories to cherish and remember throughout life,” Kambli added.
It is ironical that, in hindsight, Kambli’s career and carriage have provided the perfect foil to judge Tendulkar’s against. While the Little Master exemplified the purest principles of batting and off-field behavior, Kambli, during and since his playing days, was often seen as the Devil’s own.
“I used to enjoy my cricket from 9 to 5,” he once said in an interview, “After that, whatever I did was my personal life.”
Indiscipline, largely, and a questionable technique against sheer pace was what experts concur to be the reasons behind Kambli’s untimely ouster—a turn of events that Tendulkar still considers as one ‘of my biggest regrets’.
Kambli, who now lives in a cooperative housing society started by other former Mumbai cricketers, has certainly not endeared himself to anybody since his retirement. He owes the society Rs.10 lakh in dues that he refuses to pay and is considered to be an outright nuisance to other inhabitants.
Mumbai Mirror quoted former international Samir Dighe as saying, “He (Kambli) hurls abuses at security guards and speaks rudely to elderly people in the building. We have played together for about 15 years, it’s very unfortunate that it’s come down to this.”
Another former India cricketer, Ramesh Powar, held that Kambli often parries the attempts of the society to help him sort out his problems.
“He doesn’t acknowledge anyone’s help and instead creates trouble by misbehaving with guards and drivers. Currently, he is occupying my parking space and I am unable to do anything about it since his phone is always unreachable. It is quite disappointing.”
Tendulkar and Kambli, who sprung to eminence from the same side of the tracks, were truly cut from a different cloth.
Bangalore: Close to a billion eyes will be reciting their prayers for the master blaster as he plays his last Test match in International cricket at his home turf at the Wankhede in Mumbai.
An overview of statistics reflecting the career achievements of the maestro reveal how far ahead of the competition he was. His endurance and patience in the game is second to none, and playing first class cricket for over 2 decades, he has set the benchmark for young cricketers way higher than his predecessors did.
Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar began his international career against arch rivals Pakistan on their home territory in Karachi in November 1989. He was only 16 years old. Un-intimidated and full of confidence, he took on his opponents with such fierceness that the world had to sit back and take notice. Sachin had arrived with a bang.
Sachin has been described as the best icon the game has even seen. Cricketers of the likes of Wasim Akram, Shane Warne, and Brian Lara have time and again saluted his prolific stroke playing, sportsmanship, consistency and master all round cricketing.

Pop quiz: When was the last time you kissed — really kissed — your partner? If you just met, come up for air. If you’ve been together a while, you probably can’t remember. That’s because kissing evolved as a courtship tool to suss out a long-term mate, according to the results of a new study conducted by Oxford University.
“When two people kiss for the first time, they transmit signals about each other’s health and DNA through taste and smell, helping them best select a compatible partner,” study author Rafael Wlodarski, a DPhil student in the Department of Experimental Psychology at Oxford University, tells Yahoo Shine. “Once a couple has decided to stay together, kissing tends to die down because they no longer need that genetic information.”
- Decoding the benefits of kissing your partner
- 7 ways to kiss your partner
Here’s how it works: When you’re super attracted to someone, his natural, unique scent smells intoxicating and you may find yourself deeply inhaling while you kiss. Digging each other’s scent means your bodies are subconsciously responding to each other’s genetic codes — a sign you’ll produce healthy offspring.
Sadly, when you’ve been in a relationship for a while, you may not kiss as passionately because you (and your body) know he’s “the one.” However, it’s important to keep the passion going — the study also found that relationship satisfaction is linked to how frequently a couple locks lips, not how often they have sex. And you don’t have to make out each time in order to reap the benefits. “As long as the kiss is intimate with close facial proximity, that’s enough,” says Wlodarski.
A few suggested techniques: You can make your kisses count by using your hands (lightly tugging on each other’s hair releases pleasure-inducing endorphins), popping a mint (the menthol produces a tingly warm and cool sensation), or gentle lip biting (variety keeps things interesting!).
However you do it, just keep kissing!
