Bishwa Nath Singh :
It's emblem of Bharat Ratna which is the Republic of India's highest civilian award, awarded for the highest degrees of national service that includes artistic, literary, and scientific achievements, as well as recognition of public servi...ce of the highest order.Whether it is the field of geographical expansion, art & entertainment, science & technology, literature, politics, statesmanship or games and sports, these individuals have created history by their work.Great explorers like Vasco Da Gama and Columbus discovered new lands while Alexander- the Great almost conquered the whole world. Similarly, geniuses like Aristotle, Leonardo Da Vinci, and Albert Einstein expanded the horizon of knowledge by bringing to light new thoughts and inventions. We have had similar great talents in the field of art & entertainment and other fields in India, who have amused us all with their extra-ordinary talent.India has produced a legacy of imminent personalities since times immemorial. I am afrid that hardly there is enough space to measure their sacrifices. However, we must identify those people who have made our country proud by excelling in their own fields and bringing us international recognition.Bharat Ratna is the highest civilian honour given for exceptional service towards advancement of Art, Literature and Science, and in recognition of Public Service of the highest order by our grateful motherland. The original specifications for the award called for a circular gold medal, 35 mm in diameter, with the sun and the Hindi legend "Bharat Ratna" above and a floral wreath below. The reverse was to carry the state emblem and motto. It was to be worn around the neck from a white ribbon. This design was altered after a year. The provision of Bharat Ratna was introduced in 1954. The first ever Indian to receive this award was the famous scientist, Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman. Since then, many dignitaries, each one of them in varied aspects of their career has received this coveted award. Sofar,forty one people had received this award out of which eleven were honored posthmuosly.In fact, our former President, Shri A. P. J Abdul Kalam is also a recipient of this esteemed honour in 1997 There is no written provision that Bharat Ratna should be awarded to Indian citizens only. The award has been awarded to a naturalized Indian citizen, Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, better known as Mother Teresa (1980) and to two non-Indians – Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan and Nelson Mandela (1990). It is also not mandatory that Bharat Ratna be awarded every year. The last time this award was given was in 2008, to Pandit Bhimsen Gururaj Joshi. M. S. Subbulakshmi (1998) was the first musician ever to be awarded Bharat ratna followed by Lata Mangeshkar, play Back Singer in the year 2001. and PanditBhimshen Joshi, Hindustani Classical Singer in 1998.A famous Sitar Player Ravi Shankar was awared Bharat Ratna in 1999 wheras Bismillah Khan, Hindustani classical shehnai player in 2001.Noble laureate and a great economist Amartya Sen in 1999.The award was started from the regime of Dr. Rajendra Prasad ,the first President of India.It is irony of fate that he had received this award in 1962 wheras the second President of India had received this honor in 1954 along with Chakravart Rajgopalachari, the last Governor General of India being Independence Activist, Noble laureate C.V.Raman,a great Physicist,I have tried my best to present their life history with a sole intention to make aware about them to new generation and people living abroad with hope that they will try their best to emulate their good qualities in their life so that they could be also person of immenence in near future.I hope, you must have kiked and gone through them to enrich your knowledge and refresh your memories.Let us join to pay our very rich tribute to all of them who have been recipient of the country’s highest civilian award Bharat Ratna- a great honor indeed and pay our humble obeisance to their lotus feet!
