Does it matter who gives the award to you?
Being the recipient of a prestigious award, would it matter to you hands it over to you? Or would you accept it from just about anybody? What are your views on strictly following protocol for national awards?
Most of us would be aware of the 65th National Film awards ceremony controversy that started on Wednesday in New Delhi. Among the winners of the various awards, 11 were presented by the President and the rest were presented by two other ministers.
This led to a boycott by around 50 winners who did not want to collect the award if the President did not present it to them. After some discussion about 78 awards were finally presented.
Children and young graduates have pride is receiving their first degree or a first prize from the highest authority in a function (VC, Chancellors, Principal or Chief Guest), but should the same desire be applied by adults and professionals? Now the question is, does winning the award matters more ? or does the person who gives it matters more? Personally, to me winning the award means more than the person who gives it.
