BRAVERY AWARDS FOR CHILDREN
A look at the bravery awards given to children on the Republic Day.
As part of the cultural programs
held on our Republic Day, January 26, 1950, national awards are given to
children who have shown exemplary courage in real life. These awards are
meant to generally encourage young citizens to use their presence of mind
for socially useful activities.
What do the awards contain?
The Indian Council of Child
Welfare initiated the National Bravery Awards scheme in 1957. The award
entails a cash prize, financial assistance for completion of school education,
a certificate at the hands of the Prime Minister and not to forget the
privilege of riding on an elephant in a procession carried out on Rajpath
on the Republic Day. The award is instituted in the name of Geeta and Sanjay
Chopra, a brother-sister duo, who had shown remarkable courage while fighting
dreadful robbers. The pair died during the assault.
Are the above-mentioned illustrations inspiring? These examples show that bravery, fearlessness and presence of mind help a person to serve his fellow human beings. Not that one has to make unnatural attempts to exercise these qualities, but children should be alert about their surroundings. They have to feel responsible to the society they live in.
