There is a definite Bengal flavour in Padma awards for sports this year. Tennis star Leander Paes is the Union sports ministry s lone choice for Padma Bhushan while veteran footballer Arun Ghosh has been nominated for Padma Shri. Also in the Padma Shri mix is the Kolkata-born table tennis legend Indu Puri who moved to New Delhi to further her career in the game in the 1970s and 80s and won the national title a record eight times. Former national shooting coach Sunny Thomas and wrestler Late Khashaba Jadhav who won India s first individual Olympic medal bronze at Helsinki in 1952 too have been shortlisted for the award.
