To Youth icon and writer Chetan Bhagat, returning an award sounds political.
He’s referring to the poets and writers returning literary awards bestowed on them by the Government.
To me, this appears to be a case of overlooking what is in front of the eyes; so that what’s absent somehow becomes visible.
Before suspecting the writers who’re returning these awards, Mr. Bhagat should have asked himself one simple Question : In a country where, qualification tags and awards are used to climb the social ladder; why will any person return some top literary award?
From the look of it, this “Politics of returning Awards” observation of Mr. Bhagat, seems to be a very calculated move. He’s simply saying what his fans want him to say.
