90-year old veteran singer Sandhya Mukherjee, also known as Sandhya Mukhopadhyay, on Tuesday refused an offer of a Padma Shri award saying it is more deserving of a junior artiste and not someone of her stature. She is the second person from West Bengal to refuse a civilian honour. Former West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee had on Tuesday turned down the Padma Bhushan. He said that he was not aware that he had been named for it, and he would reject it if it were so.
