Padma Bhushan for A Ramakrishna

IE HAS been expressing concern over the government and society failing to honour citizens outside politics, films, medicine, literature, music and other arts, for their outstanding contribution.

Particularly disappointing was the arbitrary manner of selection for the ‘Padma’ awards announced on the eve of the Republic Day and the lack of selection of outstanding technocrats and bureaucrats. I cited the instance of A Ramakrishna (AR),  the Mr Builder, who made such outstanding contribution to infrastructure development for over four decades (see IE - January 2014 issue) and G Ramachandran, among the  tallest of civil servants who worked with several illustrious political leaders including Rajaji, Annadurai and Indira Gandhi with such distinction. I am happy over AR selected posthumously for the Padma Bhushan award (see IE - January 2014 issue).
