    Apart from Harbhajan's inclusion, the Arjuna awards had their share of gaffes and controversy with high-jumper Bobby Aloysius taking a drastic decision.

    Anju Bobby George winning the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna is certainly not debatable. She had won India's first ever World Championship medal last year. Her husband Bobby George getting a Dronacharya award ... well I was under the impression you gave the award to coaches who'd produced quite a few champions. Then again, Drona really didnt produce too many champions did he? Instead he ensured that Ekalavya's talent was chopped off and refused to accept that any other archer was superior to Arjuna. Rajinder Singh, who was sacked as hockey coach a couple of weeks before the Athens Olympics, gets an award! So he's not good enough to coach a hockey team in the Olympics but he merits an award? Strange are the ways of the sports ministry and the panel who selected the winners.
