    Smile Meet Dr Sharmila Tagore!



    The new saasu-ma is grinning from ear to ear these days.
    Yeah, the Saif Ali Khan-Kareena Kapoor marriage is definitely one of the reasons, but that’s so not it!

    Rinku aka Ayesha Begum Pataudi aka Sharmila Tagore put her career as an actor above her education and dropped out of college to pursue the dream that brought her to B-town in the 1960s. So recently, when Sharmilaji received the news about her being given an honorary doctorate, she was elated. And that only strengthened her belief in the fact that: “It (education) is essential for emotional and intellectual growth. But it needn’t come from academic textbooks,” as she said in an interview.






    “This honour means a lot to me since I chose not to educate myself through the conventional route of institution-based learning,” the veteran actor said, responding to the good news. And looks like her effort and zeal to learn has indeed paid off!






    Today, on October 25, 2012, the actor received an honorary doctorate from the Napier University of Edinburgh, Scotland.
    Kudos, Dr Sharmila Tagore!

    wish the actor the heartiest of congratulations.

    take care!

    Veteran actress Sharmila Tagore has been given an Honorary Doctorate of Arts from Edinburgh Napier University for her outstanding contribution to Indian cinema.






    The 67-year-old actress, who is the great grand-niece of noted poet Rabindranath Tagore, joined leading figures from the world of foreign affairs, education and almost 1000 students at the ceremony to collect the award.



    "It is indeed a privilege to be conferred an Honorary Degree by Edinburgh Napier University. It recognises the significant influence of Indian Cinema on the global cultural arena and the small role that I have played in its history. As we celebrate a hundred years of Indian Cinema, this is both a happy and humbling moment," Sharmila said while accepting her Doctorate.

    The honour comes just months after the University's Institute for Creative Industries opened The Scottish Centre for Tagore Studies (ScoTs), the first centre of its kind in the UK.

    ScoTs promotes Indian culture, education, philosophy, art and literature by highlighting the legacy of Rabindranath Tagore, the first Asian to win the Nobel Prize for literature in 1913.



    With a glittering career spanning six decades, Sharmila has won National Film Awards and Filmfare awards for her performances in films like 'Apur Sansar', 'Kashmir Ki Kali', 'An Evening in Paris', 'Aradhana'and 'Amar Prem'.



    "Sharmila has had an astonishing career and her films are enjoyed all over the world. She is an excellent ambassador for Indian culture and at the same time, through her various charity endeavours, is a strong advocate for the educational rights of children in India," said Professor Dame Joan Stringer, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of Edinburgh Napier University.
    take care!
