Game Time: Everything that is wrong with the National Sports Awards

The annual National Sports Awards ceremony was held last week and a record number of sports personalities were awarded during it – a total of 74, including five Khel Ratnas and 27 Arjuna awardees. This is in sharp contrast with how many medals India has won in the last two years. In this episode, Mihir Vasavda is joined by Nihal Koshie to talk about why such a ridiculously long list of awardees is a problem, how it devalues the entire point of awards, and the shortcomings of the selection committee.
