One more award for the high-achieving persons perhaps didn't mean much to them individually, but collectively they make a great group photograph. The 25 Greatest Global Living Indian Legends ceremony saw a rare assemblage—actors (Big B, Rajni), economists (Amartya), scientists (C.N.R. Rao, V. Ramakrishnan), sportsmen (Paes, Kapil, Sachin), musicians (Rahman, Zubin Mehta), writers (Vikram Seth) were all honoured. We all were promised an Indian version of BBC by NDTV, the channel that sponsored the conclave.
