For the Unsung
Last evening, I had an occasion to attend a different kind of awards function, hosted by a Bollywood actor of repute, Ashish Vidyarthi. He honoured unsung people, the ordinariest of the ordinary in a small village and people thronged the small auditorium. The trophies, incidentally were hand - crafted as also the shawl that he draped aroung the shoulders of the awardees. Sincereity is the flavor of the day. And the crowd was an amalgam of people from various states, like West Bengal, Assam, Tripura, Andhra Pradesh and so on. A little can also be enthralling.
