You can consider yourself eligible for the highest civilian honour of India when you do something that takes the nation to a new scale in front of the world’s eyes. It is then that you become the recipient of the prestigious Bharat Ratna title.
One of the hot contenders for the upcoming season could be the Mozart of Madras A R Rahman. Apparently, Rahman is once again in the race for the prestigious Oscars and if he wins the Oscar he will become eligible for Bharat Ratna.
This is because he would have then put India in the map of the world twice which is an incredible feat. Rahman has already won the Oscar for his work in the movie Slumdog Millionaire. This time his work is shortlisted for the movie Pele: Birth Of A Legend. Best of success to Rahman!
