Remembering Padma Vibhushan Mario João Carlos do Rosario de Brito Miranda, ComIH (2 May 1926 – 11 December 2011), popularly known as Mario Miranda or Mario de Miranda, was an Indian cartoonist and painter based in Loutolim in the Indian state of Goa. Miranda had been a regular with The Times of India and other newspapers in Mumbai, including The Economic Times, though he got his popularity with his works published in The Illustrated Weekly of India. He was awarded Padma Vibhushan in 2012. Miranda was born in Daman, then in Portuguese India, to Goan Catholic parents of Goud Saraswat Brahmin origin. His ancestral surname was originally Sardessai, before the family converted to Roman Catholicism in the 1750s. At an early age when his mother saw him drawing his home walls, she brought him a blank book, which he calls his "Diary". He even started getting into trouble at school, for sketching Catholic priests. Mario Miranda's early cartoons presented vignettes of Goan village life, a theme he is best known . ...

Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday paid tribute to social activists Loknayak Jayaprakash Narayan and Nanaji Deshmukh on their birth anniversaries. "Jayaprakash Narayan (also known as JP) was a true nationalist, who devoted his life to service and nation building. Tributes on his birth anniversary," Modi said in a statement. "JP's call for 'Sampoorna Kranti' galvanised the entire nation and played a historic role in preserving India's democratic fabric," he said. In 1999, he was posthumously awarded the Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian award, in recognition of his social work. JP was born Oct 11, 1902. He died Oct 8, 1979. Paying tribute to Deshmukh, the Prime Minister said: "Tributes to Nanaji Deshmukh on his birth anniversary. His organisation skills and efforts to serve society are a source of inspiration for us." Deshmukh, born in 1916, was a social activist and worked in the fields of education, health, and rural self-reliance. He was honoured with the Padma Vibhushan in 1999. Deshmukh had wo ...
Late BKS Iyengar had form, agility, and grace, but it wasn't something he was born with. Plagued by typhoid, malaria, and tuberculosis, he was a sickly child, who could barely stand on his own two feet. Yet, he trained himself to stand on his head for 30 minutes. This poise came with demands. It needed tremendous discipline, but it won the master yogi many accolades, including the Indian civilian honor, the Padma Vibhushan. Do you know the word Iyengar is also in the Oxford Dictionary? Read more on TrepUp.

Before that he had received several honours such as: Arjuna Award( 1994); Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award (1997); Padma Shri (1999); Padma Vibhushan (2008). He was the first sportsperson without aviation background to be conferred the honorary rank of Group Captain in 2011. Tendulkar was nominated as Member, Rajya Sabha in 2013. Against this backdrop, Sachin Tendulkar posed for BMW 18 Hybrid car at the Auto Expo 2014 held in Feb 2014. He has been regularly endorsing commercial products even after conferment of Bharat Ratna and getting paid for it. This is simply disgusting.

Sikh Genocide 1984: There is NO way anything will ever happen to Jagdish Tytler April 11, 2013 By Desh Kapoor 0 Comments “During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act” – George Orwell In September 1999, Dr. Manmohan Singh was addressing the Press Club of India as a candidate from South Delhi. Being a Sikh, and that too from Congress, he wanted to make a statement about the Sikh Massacres of 1984. It should not have happened, he said. However, the entire massacres were orchestrated by Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and not Congress, he suggested. After all, why would Congress, which had awarded him, a Sikh, Padma Vibhushan in 1984 have hatred towards the Sikhs? Many Sikhs in Delhi had not reconciled to the massacres conducted by Congress in 1984 and weren’t supportive of it anymore. BJP propaganda, Dr. Singh suggested. That’s all to it. After all, the easiest way to handle the crimes and genocides by Congress and the Communists have been deflected in India by ...

The dispensation by attacking the Special Director of the Intelligence Bureau, Rajendra Kumar, has attacked the core of India’s internal security intelligence. All for whom, but the LeT! Mr Rajendra Kumar’s failing has been his being professional and conscientious. In that he acquired intelligence from ‘sources’, informed the higher-ups in Delhi, which includes his seniors and in-turn the Ministry of Home Affairs. His main failing however was that, in the process, he was not saving a Chief Minister but Narendra Modi. If he had acted in the same manner to save the life of some privileged ‘democratic-monarchs’ of the country, he would have been awarded Padma Vibhushan and in the case of highest monarch a ‘ Bharat Ratna.’ After all the same dispensation rewarded Mr Brajesh Mishra with Padma Vibushan for his Boston rescue operation of the ‘Yuvraj’. Readers with little research can know the truth. Never before in the history of India, an IB or R&AW official was asked to submit before the CB ...
Padma Vibhushan Hariprasad Chaurasia was born in Allahabad in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. His father was a wrestler. His mother died when he was 6. He had to learn music without his father's knowledge, for his father wanted him to become a wrestler. He did go to the Akhada and train with his father for some time, although he also started learning music and practising at his friend's house. He often credits his wrestling training for giving him the immense stamina and lung power that are the hallmarks of his flute playing, stating that, "I was not any good at wrestling. I went there only to please my father. But maybe because of the strength and stamina I built up then, I'm able to play the bansuri even to this day."

Padma Vibhushan Dr.Akkineni Nageswara Rao's 'devdas' stands not only the best among his films but also one of the best among a few films in 82 years of tollywood history. The movie completed 60 years on 26th of June,2013. Although many heroes acted 'devdas' roles in different languages of India, no hero stands on par with the great performance exhibited by ANR in 'devdas'. Superstar Krishna used to take up many adventurous tasks those days. One such daring step is to remake ANR's 'devdas'. Like ANR's 'devdas', Krishna's 'devdas' also filled with melodious songs. He too tried his best in the role of 'devdas'. Krishna's 'devdas' was released in the year 1974. However, ANR's 'devdas' was re-released as an opposition to Krishna's 'devdas'. Unfortunately, Krishna's 'devdas' proved to be a disaster while ANR's 'devdas' again scored a thumping success at the box office. That's the craze of ANR in the character of 'devdas'. The movie stands eternal in the history of tollywood.
Granting Boons by Human Incarnation Whenever the human incarnation grants boons, it enters into the divine form of Kalabhairava, who is just a mood of God only. All the deities are only the moods of God only. Kalabhairava is a deity who is very very strict in implementing the cycle of deeds (karma chakra) and in evaluating the deservingness of the devotee while granting the boons. Actually there are two programs for the human incarnation here. One is preaching the divine knowledge and the other is performing miracles whenever there is real need. The minister is moving in the public giving a political speech. He has to carefully observe the possibility of sudden attack by the opposition parties also. One cannot do both these activities with full concentration. Therefore, he attends to first program with full concentration. A gun man follows the minister catering to the second program. Then only the minister can do full justice to his political speech and free mingling with public. Similarly, the human inca ...
Always wondered. Why does the Indian media mention "Lord Swaraj Paul" and "Lord Meghnad Desai" etc...these are British titles, not officially recognized in India. But they never refer to the Indian Govt. titles and attach the prefix "Bharat Ratna" "Padma Vibhushan" "Padma Shri"...colonial mindset still in play?

Citizen Dang The Dangs, Satyapal and Vimla, are in real terms the First Citizens of not only Amritsar but the entire region. They have lived a life which is an ideal most of us only dream of but never dare to live. Varinder Walia salutes the Perfect Couple as he profiles their courage and honesty. Some people stand taller than their ideals. And yet they are unassuming to the core. Even those who subscribe to a different ideology cannot help appreciating their very sound values and principled stand. This is just-true in case of the veteran CPI leaders — Mr Satyapal Dang, and his wife, Ms Vimla Dang. They have been a legend in their lifetime. They have fought for the toiling people and taken a principled stand against militancy in Punjab. They have the distinction of being the only couple in the country to have received two President awards — Padma Vibhushan and Padma Shri, respectively. The couple had fought many relentless battles for the just cause of the downtrodden in their 65-year-long social life ...
