Has the “Nobel Prize” lost its sheen? This seems to be the big question that comes across our mind, when we look at the list of prize winners, very few have earned the title and most have earned the title by other means. This being the scenario, should we still consider this prize as worthy?
A typical example is Malala. Is she a worthy? What was her contribution to this world? What were her credentials? What are her future endeavours? These are a few questions that need to be answered. There are so many people who have lost their family and keep losing near and dear ones for opposing barbaric terror groups. Just because they are not known, should we abstain from honouring them?
I strongly believe that the “Nobel Prize” committee should search for recipients far and wide to bestow this prestigious award. One such recipient who has earned the prize with his undaunted service to humanity is “Indian activist Kailash Satyarthi. It took years and years of hard work for him to be recognized. He never had the media lime light on him; he never had donors pouring funds to help him in his quest to save young children. He did all this with whatever little resources he had with him.
I urge the “Nobel Prize” committee to reconsider the way in which they select their recipient. It should not be biased and it should form sever layers of scrutinization before choosing the deserving candidate.
Hats off to Shri.Kailash for earning the prestigious title through HARD WORK.
