The following doesn’t deserve a separate post, therefore am appending it here.

This is no do crore ka question. A simple one that even a school kid will answer without thinking twice.

Which is India’s most respected civilian award?

Bharat Ratna, you say?

The wannabe toothpaste model who prefers to be addressed to as a ‘management guru’ believes it is the Padmashree, or atleast his article on Shobhna Bhartia (Vice-Chairperson and Editorial Director, HT Media Limited) in ‘India’s Most Influential Business and Economy Magazine'[1] (he’s also the E-in-C) says so. He goes on to add that she won the award in 1996, but as far as my short-term memory stretches, it was a good nine years later in 2005. Wasn’t getting the facts right one of the basics of good management? Or is there another ‘alternative’ theory on the lines of ‘Survival of the Weakest’, the ‘Trickle-up Theory’ and the ‘Law of Increasing Marginal Utility?’
