Will the reforms in the Security Council encompass the much needed abrogation of, or at least some meaningful changes in, veto power.

It is called bander bant in Hindustani language. Its not-so-apt English translation may be unholy distribution/sharing of the spoils.

These (Padma) awards are not just out of sync with the principles of equality and democracy but also create tension and strain in the political field. I had to ask to be excused from accepting the award if we are to keep public life free from any “pollution.”                                     
– Rajinder Sachar, former Delhi High Court Chief Justice,                                                           expressing his regret and inability to accept the award.
Noble act of a noble person, indeed! But what does “pollution” refers to – the quality or the quantum of awardees?
