    Bestowing medals and honours to certain people only by various organizations is become routine. Once a person achieve his success give break and encourage other upcoming entrepreneurs who are available in a lot. Singer Lata Mangeshkar decided not to take awards for sake of other young sensational singers to groom them for future. After a person become a public figure stop giving them more of awards. Ours pooulation of 130 crores...select one from them.
