The second edition of Salaam India Awards 2014, constituted by India TV last year, is back to felicitate the exceptional acts of bravery exemplified by the common citizens of India.

 

Following the ‘nationwide call for nominations’, the 2014 edition of the coveted honors is officially underway post the Jury deliberated to decide upon the distinguishing Bravehearts last weekend.

This year’s Award Jury includes India TV Chairman & Editor-in-Chief, Rajat Sharma, Former India CEC, Dr. S.Y. Quraishi, Former Army Chief Gen. Deepak Kapoor, Ace Shooter Col. (Retd.) Rajyavardhan S. Rathore and former IPS Dr. Kiran Bedi.

 

In line with the guiding principle for the awards, the chosen honourees are those who are not intrinsically fearless but who could selflessly win over their fears to safeguard someone else’s interest while risking or even sacrificing their own lives, in the hour of need.

“As a leader in the Hindi news genre, it is certainly a matter of both pleasure & contentment for us to felicitate those who are not only our role models but also who bring the positive balance to humanity, our society & nation” she added.

 

The chosen bravehearts will be honored in a glittering ceremony on Sunday, 21st September at Hotel Taj, New Delhi. Salaam India Awards will be conferred across four categories including Bravery Awards, Gallantry Awards, Jyoti Singh Awards and Special Awards.
