भारत रत्न के बारे में संपूर्ण जानकारी – Bharat Ratna Award Winners List From 1954 to 2019 Awardees

Bharat Ratna is the highest civilian award granted by the Government of India to distinguished citizens. The award was instituted in 1954. The purpose of the Bharat Ratna is to award exceptional service or performance of the highest order without any discrimination.

When the award was first constituted, it was meant to reward exceptional achievements in art, science, literature and public service. But since 2011, the criteria of the award have been expanded to include exceptional achievements in any human endeavor.

It is the Prime Minister of India who recommends the Bharat Ratna and it is the President of India who confers it. Winners of the award receive a certificate or a Sanad signed by the President and a medallion. This award does not carry any monetary grants. There can only be a maximum of three nominees awarded per year.

The first recipients of the Bharat Ratna were among the greatest Indians who ever lived – freedom fighter C. Rajagopalachari, former President, teacher and philosopher Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, and the great scientist C. V. Raman. They were given this honor in 1954.

Since then the Bharat Ratna has been conferred to 45 distinguished men and women, including 12 who were given the award posthumously.

Sachin Tendulkar, the greatest cricketer of his generation was the youngest to receive this award, at the age of 40. Two non-Indians, freedom fighter Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan of Pakistan and former South African President Nelson Mandela have also received the award.

25-JANUARY-2019 [LATEST UPDATE]: Pranab Mukherjee, Nanaji Deshmukh, Bhupen Hazarika given Bharat Ratna. Deshmukh and Hazarika were conferred the award posthumously.

Former President Pranab Mukherjee, late legendary singer Bhupen Hazarika and late social activist Nanaji Deshmukh were on Friday awarded Bharat Ratna, the country’s highest civilian award.

Soon after the Rashtrapati Bhavan announced the award, Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid tributes to all the three; Bharatiya Jana Sangh leader late Nanaji Deshmukh, Singer Bhupen Hazarika and former President Pranab Mukherjee

“Pranab Da is an outstanding statesman of our times. He has served the nation selflessly and tirelessly for decades, leaving a strong imprint on the nation’s growth trajectory. His wisdom and intellect have few parallels. Delighted that he has been conferred the Bharat Ratna; Modi tweeted.

The Prime Minister tweeted, “The songs and music of Shri Bhupen Hazarika are admired by people across generations. From them radiates the message of justice, harmony and brotherhood. He popularised India’s musical traditions globally. Happy that the Bharat Ratna has been conferred on Bhupen Da”.

In another tweet, Modi said, “Nanaji Deshmukh‘s stellar contribution towards rural development showed the way for a new paradigm of empowering those living in our villages. He personifies humility, compassion and service to the downtrodden. He is a Bharat Ratna in the truest sense!”.
