Karnataka birth gets Rajamouli Padmasree

Tue, Jan 26, 2016, 04:46 PM
The big-budgeted `Bahubali' had got Rajamouli his Padmasree national award. So he sat quiet till Tuesday afternoon that he got the award for the film.

Rajamouli got the award for the film, as was recommended by Karnataka where he was born. The famous director may not have given much importance to the fact till it was out that neither Andhra Pradesh nor Telangana, for whom he was making films, had bothered to recommend him.

Rajamouli was born in Karnataka and this fact was highlighted by that government while recommending him for the award.

After he realized it was Karnataka, Rajamouli made a series of tweets in the afternoon. He tweeted he was born in Karnataka, had education in AP, worked in Tamil Nadu and settled down in Telangana. Thus he was associated with the Southern States.

The fact that Karnataka recommended him has angered netizens of Andhra and Telangana who are criticising the governments for not doing the obvious.

Perhaps the interested netizens may have overlooked that either/or Telangana and AP thought it was the other's job. Telangana has its problems with the Centre not heeding any of its recommendations. Rajamouli fans should be happy that it was not Telangana recommendation. Had it been, Rajamouli might have been overlooked.

Last year, AP had recommended, in Rajamouli's own words, but he was not given the award.

Karnataka knows which horse to back, and that is why Bangalore races are famous. The Telugu States have much to learn from Karnataka.
