Lately, there have been a lot of debates concerning the recently conferred Bharat Ratna on Sachin Tendulkar. Some factions have emerged backing the case of Major Dhyanchand and questioning whether Sachin really deserves to be awarded with highest civilian honor of the country. Regardless of the outcome of these debates and with utmost respect to Sachin, I would like to bring up some names that deserve the honour in the same capacity for their service and huge contribution in their respective fields.
These guys deserve Bharat Ratna too…
Rahul Gandhi (Politics and Comedy)
Dubbed as the next PM since the day he was born, he has single handedly saved half the Facebook pages that were on the verge of extinction. He has already broken the record of oldest “youth icon”. His election speeches have been giving tough competition to Comedy Nights with Kapil. It has also come to notice that Indira Gandhi suggested her own name for Bharat Ratna as Prime Minister of India. Few people are speculating that she had proposed Rahul’s good name for this honour before she left us. He deserves a Bharat Ratna for the immense selfless contribution in the revival of the TRPs of news channels showing his gaffes in continuous loops.
Digvijay Singh (Medicine and Entertainment)
Politics has been a dull sport from the days of Chanakya. Shri Digvijay Singh has changed the perception of media towards political parties’ media spokespersons and he can be credited with the houseful attendance in press conferences. He has set a benchmark for idiocy which is now considered as breakthrough in the mental asylums as they use the newly calibrated ‘Digvijay Scale of Brain Damage’ to admit patients. He deserves a Bharat Ratna for inspiring the invention.
Asaram Bapu (Social Service and Inspiration)
A wannabe Pornstar, Asaram was forced to choose a different career path early in his life due to some unfortunate circumstances. But when an opportunity came knocking, he gave his best shot. His dream came true and he was the center of attention before he was found guilty of pursuing two extremely challenging and conflicting careers simultaneously. He may be serving his term, but one cannot take away the fact that he took the road less travelled and left a trail for others to follow and be inspired. He deserves a Bharat Ratna for being an idol to all other Godmen.
Yo Yo Honey Singh (Music and Art)
The golden era of music and lyrics dawned long before but Honey Singh made sure it was burnt and cremated multiple times. He can be credited with objectifying and offending women time and again. Somewhere between Brown eyes and Blue eyes, music’s mother and sister became one. Undoubtedly, he deserves a Bharat Ratna for single-handedly downgrading lyrics multiple notches below the acceptable level of crap.
Vivek Oberoi (haseen sapnon ke liye)
This name needs no introduction. He is the heavyweight of the Hindi Film Industry. So much has been his fan following that Saudi Arabia has banned the existence of movie theatres in his honour since the very first day his arrival on the big screen was announced. Heath Ledger saw Vivek Oberoi compare his Joker with Kaal in the future dikhane wali machine designed by Dr. Rohit Mehra (arre Krishh wala yaar) and suffered a drug overdose to deal with the anxiety (the greatest loss of Hollywood industry). Bollywood has a special place booked in hell by virtue of being associated with the name “Vivek Oberoi”. I demand that he be awarded the Bharat Ratna for his unparalleled contribution.
The list can grow longer. But we shall give you a break to digest these names before we give you any further shocks. Peace. Bharat ratna for all.
