When trust in politicians is all time low in India, Should our ceremonial heads at least be inspiring personalities?
One current leader In India who inspired billions is Kalam, ex President . Apart from his many achievement he was awarded Bharat Ratna , highest civilian award in India.
Should future Presidents of India be Bharat Ratnas? There are only 4 living Bharat Ratna recepients in India : Kalam, Ravi Shankar, Lata Mangeshkar & Amartya Sen
Wouldn't any of above four will be more inspiring than current set of political leaders aspiring to be President of India?
Shouldn't highest civilian award is a good eligibility criteria for nominating candidates for President by Political parties
Taking the reasoning further, should other civilian awards such as Padma Vibhushan, Padma Bhushan, Padma Shri etc be made eligibility criteria for other political nominations such as Governors.
Should Governor position move away from being a retiring post for political leaders and bureaucrats and instead be given to inspiring people.
Skeptics will ask whether this will increase quality of leadership or lower the standards of civilian awards?
