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 jury deliberated upon the bravehearts last weekend.
This year’s award jury includes India TV Chairman & Editor-in-Chief, Rajat Sharma, former CEC, SY Quraishi, former Army Chief Gen. Deepak Kapoor, ace shooter Col. (Retd.) Rajyavardhan S Rathore, and former IPS Kiran Bedi.
Salaam India Awards will be conferred across four categories including Bravery Awards, Gallantry Awards, Jyoti Singh Awards and Special Awards.
In line with the guiding principle for the awards, the selected awardees are not only intrinsically fearless but who could selflessly win over their fears to safeguard someone else’s interest while risking or even sacrificing their own lives.
Announcing the second edition, 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 & fearlessness, also the most important traits of a news source.”
“As a leader in the Hindi news genre, it is certainly a matter of both pleasure and 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 winners will be honoured at ceremony on Sunday, September 21, 2014 at Hotel Taj, New Delhi.
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, one of India’s premier event management companies will be managing the event.
