A moronic faux pas

Having previously written about how hopelessly pretentious and stupid Star Screen Awards are, this time around they have managed to reach another milestone to showcase their stupidity. This.

I mean how can someone be so unabashedly moronic and ignorant? No I am not expecting every Tom, Dick and Hariya to know about Jahnu Barua, but then if you are an entity who is trying to take interest in his work by interviewing him or by nominating him for an award (as is in this case) then the least you can do is carry out a basic research on the man!

Inspite of living in an era of information onslaught such kind of instances I am sure are not unheard of. Now,now now...I had decided not to give too much of importance to such kinda sham awards but then..they went too far.

Nothing surprising about it. This is what the North East would call Indian colonialism. Face it, Hindi speaking India is dumb when it comes to the rest of India.

But that's nothing to worry about, it's the same as Americans calling their national events as World Series.

We are in Superpower company.

Yeah, yeah...know what you mean about those awards! But if you're really looking for a great time spent bitching about them, watch the Star Parivar Awards! They take the cake in...mediocrity, nepotism, ignorance etc etc.
And hope you have a rocking '06!
