Congratulations Ms. Vidya Ram

for topping the class in Columbia School of Journalism. You are probably the first Indian to top the class in a graduate school in United States of America and made your father so proud that he had to allot a column in the newspaper he edits to inform us of your achievement. Our hearts were filled with pride when we read
her classmates gave her a big round of applause when the school announced on Journalism Day, the day before the convocation, that she was the student of the year
.

The day is not far off when you take up the editorship of India's national Newspaper. After all with your achievements so far - Columbia School of Journalism, experience in China, internship in Frontline - you are following in the footsteps of your illustrious father.

Yes, Shame

I can understand Laloo throwing a party over his daughters achievement. But not Ram.

Is it Kakkaiku than Kunju Pon Kunju Syndrome.

Thanks!

I find it very hard to agree with this.

She's a public figure's daughter. Paris Hilton's lingerie and Prince Harry's girlfriends get attention precisely because of pedigree and not individual merit. So her grades would've been a matter of public reporting, given this day and age... you can bet a couple of the competition would've flagged snide reports if she had dunked.

Further, as far as dynasty et al goes, it IS a privately owned company. Unlike a governement, or a political party claiming to represent you and me, it is a *privately* owned company. You would expect the inheritance to be handed down, wot ?

I find a lot of meanness and inverted snobbery in the comments on it, rather than a balanced view. Of course, IMHO and to each his own ...
