November Medley - Bharat Ratna, National River, Half-White House

A decade from now, this is how I wish to remember November 5 of a certain year.
"1. The Government announced the award of Bharat Ratna to Pandit Bhimsen Joshi. The newspapers gave him a 1/2 inch space. No channel resounded with his music. A kid's voice could be heard - Who is he, mom?

Salutations to the Maestro.

2.
The Ganga has been declared as National River.
Best wishes to the Ganga River Basin Authority - may they work with sincerity of purpose to stop pollution and degradation. The newspaper allowed Ganga to take up a little more space.
Perhaps one can feel much happier when listening to Bhupen Hazarika's Ganga behti ho kyon

3. (The thought occured that)  the White House in a certain Nation could be renamed a Half-White House. The newspapers and the channels went disproportionately overboard."
