The second edition of ‘Salaam India Awards 2014’, constituted by India TV last year, is back to felicitate 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 now that the Jury has deliberated on the distinguishing Bravehearts.
This year’s jury includes India TV Chairman & Editor-in-Chief, Rajat Sharma, Former India CEC, Dr SY Quraishi, Former Army Chief General 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 won over their fears to safeguard someone else’s interest while risking or even sacrificing their own lives, in the hour of need.
Announcing the second edition of the honors, India TV MD & CEO, Ritu Dhawan said, “We are glad that we are again getting a chance to felicitate our real heroes, who simply inspire us all by their actions demonstrating selflessness and fearlessness, also the most important traits of a news source.”
Salaam India Awards will be conferred across four categories including Bravery Awards, Gallantry Awards, Jyoti Singh Awards and Special Awards.
Officer’s Choice has once again decided join hands with India TV as the presenting sponsor of the initiative along with Amrapali Group as the associate sponsor. Dainik Bhaskar and Pioneer Publicity are the media partners for the initiative. Showtime Events will be managing the event.
