I read in the news papers that SRM University, Chennai (Tamilnadu) will be awarding an honorary doctarate to Abhinav Bindra who won an the only Gold Medal in the just concluded Beijing Olympics 2008.
It is great job done by him and the country is proud of his achievement. But I think award of a doctorate at this age is far fetched.
Dr Madahavan Nair is also being awarded the doctorate in the same ceremony. Is it comparable the efforts of Dr Nair and Abhinav Bindra? Abinav Bindra is hust 25 years old. By awarding doctorate to him, the University will be doing more harm than good.
