The comment is little hard to digest .
If the award winner says ...........................".I will have no belongingness to an India represented by Modi" it creates confusion. I think he is not measuring his words before uttering. First of all, India is much bigger than a PM or a PM prospect. A Government must not be mistaken for the nation. We throw away Governments, bring new ones. Does that mean we discard our own nation and rebuild one every five years? A nation is perceived for the rich history, tradition and cultural heritage. Just for Narendra Modi, if I detach myself from the proud feeling of being an Indian, it will not go down well. We have our own duties, and if we don't want Mr. Modi to be the PM, we need harder things to do than just issuing statements to please the political establishments who gave them the awards. I am never respectful of such awardees. The process and considerations behind awards are too murky.

Do I cease to be an Indian if a person of not my liking becomes the prime minister?
Does my belongingness for my nation depends on who rules India?
Indira gandhi was a bigger dictator... does the jnanpeeth awardee felt the same when she ruled India?

As BJP is seeking votes, not for Lotus symbol but for Modi, he will become a dictator,the moment he become our PM. It is natural.Nothing unusual. The party will win election for Modi not for party principles.

One can not expect anything meaningful thought from U R Anantmurthy if itz something to do with social justice & politics.

U.R.Anantha Murthy & Girish Karnad got their award for other than literary works(doing chamcha work for congi); the person who really deserves this award(even nobel perhaps) is S.L. Bhyrappa because he is against any lobbying he did not get this award.If Anantha Murthy feels he cannot stay in NaMo's India he is welcome to quit India for good, we kannadigas don't mind sponsoring his final trip to some other country!
