Bangalore: 22 young guns of India who saved their friends and others from drowning and exposed social evils will be conferred the National Bravery Awards for 2013 on the eve of 64th Republic day. In 1957, The National Awards for Bravery was started by the Indian Council for Child Welfare (ICCW) to felicitate and honour children who have performed outstanding deeds of bravery and selfless sacrifice. Every year the ICCW confers these awards to children below 16 years of age. Let’s have a look at the awardees of 2013 -

1. Renu from Delhi
To be Awarded With - Geeta Chopra Award

The prestigious 'Geeta Chopra' award has been conferred on a 17-year-old girl who was instrumental in exposing the physical and sexual abuse of the inmates of a children's home in Delhi by the owner and staff. Last year, this award was granted to 13 years old Mittal Mahendrabhai Patadiya of Gujrat.

2. Ramdhintara (Posthumously) from Mizoram
To be Awarded With - National Bravery Award

15-year-old Ramdhintara from Mizoram, who sacrificed his life while trying to save his friend from drowning, is the only child to get the National Bravery Award posthumously this year.

1: It is fine to award brave children with Bravery Award on
Republic day. I would go a step ahead and recommend to the Honorable President and PM of India to consider taking
these brave children directly into Defense services as a commissioned rank Trainee officer once they attain adulthood.
These children are the future Admirals and Generals of India.
