CNN-IBN, Reliance Industries to honour India’s ‘Real Heroes’

CNN-IBN and Reliance Industries Ltd are organising the Real Heroes Awards in Mumbai on April 14 in celebration of India’s 60 years of Independence and triumph of the ‘Human Spirit’. The Real Heroes Awards is a recognition of and salutation to the unsung heroes of India who are making a difference to the society in their own ways.

The Awards are a follow-up to a special series on CNN-IBN where 24 exceptional individuals were profiled.

“‘The Real Heroes’ celebrates the dedicated work of selfless individuals. Nothing gives them a greater sense of fulfillment than helping people in need. Their sacrifice and selfless contribution is truly inspiring. We are proud to be part of an initiative that salutes and supports their admirable efforts. We hope this initiative will inspire and encourage others to come forward and participate in making our society and the world a better place,” said Nita Ambani, President, Dhirubhai Ambani Foundation.

Speaking on the initiative, Rajdeep Sardesai, Editor-in-Chief, CNN-IBN and IBN 7, said, “Real Heroes is the much-needed acknowledgement and recognition of the work being one by men and women across our nation who in their own way want to make a difference. They are not well-known, nor do they seek money and fame. They simply want to work towards the betterment of the society and fulfill what they truly believe in.”

Real Heroes is about ordinary humans who have done extraordinary things and who have gone beyond the realm of personal wellbeing to work for the wellbeing of others in India. The CNN-IBN editorial team, through its extensive reporter network in the country, has identified 24 ‘Real Heroes’ across India (six from each zone – North, East, West and South), whose work can be classified under one of the eight categories – Education, Environment, Healthcare, Rural Development, Sports, Social Welfare, Women & Child Welfare, and Wildlife Conservation.

These individuals have contributed to India and nationhood in their own ways. CNN-IBN and Reliance Industries Ltd’s Real Heroes Awards would acknowledge their feats.
