    Very disappointed to see a Pakistani Singer on the stage after what they did to Mumbai some time ago.Its pity that you can’t do anything at the borders but but have decency of not enbarrasing them so openly at home.
    Please don’t pretend nothing happened.

    Totally agree.

    This is like someone winning a local beauty pageant in Nagpur and the award being talked about is Miss India!

    The only saving grace is that in addition to honoring Hindustani Music, they have also created a category for Carnatic Music.

    When it comes to the prestigious National Awards, the album, song, singers, music directors are selected from across all languages. That’s a true honour, as you are competing against the entire length and breadth of India.

    I hope the organisers fix it the next time. Wonder why no media person ever poses such pertinent questions!! All they do is to report the event, as per what the PR agency’s instructions. Shame!

    Why call it Global INDIAN Music Awards, when all you are considering is Hindi film and Hindi non-film music?

    Only of you consider the whole of India – music from Bengali, Marathi, Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada movies as well as non-movie albums that you can truly call yourself GIMA. Until then you can call it only Global HINDI Music Awards (GHMA).

    Why do we continue to keep quiet about this bias? Earlier we had IIFA, which again did the same thing, it should be IHFA, as it only awards Hindi films!

      if they would nominate Sonu Nigam or Abhi Mujh mein kahi, this wouldn’t happen.
      this is what comes up when a country doesn’t know the value of it’s legends!
