Is Janaki right to refuse Padma Bhushan?

Singer S Janaki took a tough stand today and refused to accept her Padma Bhushan award, to protest the small number of people selected from South India. Do you agree with her stand?

I nvr liked old songs in my early childhood stating various foolish reasons, later heard few alongwith my mom. N now I'm more of a bigger fan than mom herself.

S Janaki n SPB are the ZenitH!!
But its strange how Indian Govt. didn't recognize this thing for so so many years. had it been a decade late its fine, but 30-40 years is RIDICULOUS !!

s bcoz she is one and only most versatile singer in india to sing any kind of song at any range of pitch, style and voice. it can b proven that she is one and only versatile and efficient singer in india with some of scientific inventions and can b compared to other'(of lata mangeskar, asha bonsle , susheela ,vanijayaram and chitra etc) if i get a chance i will prove that she is eligible to hundreds of doctorates and aal highest civilian awards in the world

She is 100% correct.For the last 20 years I was expecting Janaki Ammas name,when the Padma awards published.Now I am sure that her decision is right.In any case ,Janaki amma ,you will be there, in the heart of the Indians for ever.

After independent There is one country that is INDIA ,North side people say BHARAT whatever it is we all are Indians , But British ever separated NORTH & SOUTH , But we INDIANS always proud to say Iam a NORTH or South Indian's . these should change first from our mind. Then automatically everything will be re correct its way .

janaki's decision is correct.the south is not given impartance during the award ceremonies.janaki should accept only bharat ratna.the goverment should realise that there equal amount of talents in south as that of the north.

It is unfortunate that a legendary Singer like S.Janaki Amma has had to reject such a honorary award. However, it is important for the Government to look at 2 pertinent points; one ignoring the people from South India for awards or any such matter and second the process of selecting right people while granting such awards.
