‘Returning awards will not have any effect’ !!


Lately, I have been watching lot of news about talented award winners returning their awards as a mark of protest in the face of few unpleasant incidents as a result of perceived intolerance.

Unity in diversity is a concept of ‘unity without uniformity and diversity without fragmentation’ that shifts focus from unity based on a mere tolerance of physical, cultural, linguistic, social, religious, political, ideological and/or psychological differences towards a more complex unity based on an understanding that difference enriches human interactions. And, ‘Unity in diversity’ is a popular motto within and among different states politically as well as culturally in India. ( source; wikipedia)

We Indians are unique, exemplar (to the world) and basically very tolerant and can live in perfect harmony in the midst of diverse thoughts, faith, religions, eating as well as dressing habits and varied day to day culture. The creative people should seek better ways to express their displeasure. By returning the awards given to them, they are belittling their own achievements in their fields of interest.

Returning awards will not have any effect !
