National awards are meant ONLY for social and national service which helps to improve our economy, standard of life, value systems etc in the eyes of the world to get us name and fame - BUT is being misused for sports, film folks who amass lots of money and do little for the country in most cases; they can be honoured with Sports and Entertainment awards in recognition of their talents - we talked ill of Rao Sahib, Rao Bahadur of British Govt but continue same trend with different titles; PITY there is NO sense of justice in our Govt at top and many are "corrupt" to the core to please chamchas and chelaas !!!
