Usha Uthup is honored with the award 

The 76-year-old said in the interview, “I am so, so happy. I am overflowing with joy…tears are visible in my eyes, you all can see. For me, this is the biggest moment of my life… to be recognised and appreciated by your country and, of course, by your government. What more could one ask for, truly?”

Addressing the importance of the award the singer noted, “I feel so good because if you are a classical singer or a classical dancer, or if you are classical in your art, then it’s natural to receive an award eventually. But for people like us… we are ordinary people, so to be chosen for the Padma award is such a huge thing… because I only believe in peace and brotherhood, and I only believe that together, as a united force, we can do things for each other… make them smile through my music. That’s all I’m interested in.”

The Padma Awards were announced on the auspicious occasion of the 75th Republic Day. The awards felicitate extraordinary contributions in various fields.
