Padma Awards 2005
Update: January 28. Two of the awardees have refused the Padma awards this year. Romila Thapar and Ka
Romila Thapar refused the Padma Bhushan as she said that she had declined the same award in 1992; she had given the same reasons as she gave this time in her letter to the President: "appreciative of the honour..but regretfully unable to accept it. I decided some years ago that I would only accept awards from academic institutions or those associated with my professonal work, and not accept State awards...purely personal decision and does not reflect on the other recipients of State awards.
Earlier, Assamese journalist Kanaksen Deka refused the Padma Shri on the ground that it would lower the love and affection shown to him by the people of Assam.
