Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended the National Bravery Awards 2016 and distributed bravery awards to 25 young recipients in Delhi today. Motivating the students and addressing other attendees at the event, he gave some valuable tips and guidance to the young students in order to lead a successful and an educated life. He started off his speech with conversing with these young kids and asked about their qualities. He further said, “What you all have done does not only shows how brave are you, but also explains your determination. And that saved someone’s life.”
“People will keep on bothering you till the time you don’t achieve something yet again and that something does not mean just physical bravery, but to live your life with a goal,” the PM said while motivating these brave hearts. He also asked the kids “what is today’s date remembered for?” And later remembered Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose on his birthday. PM Modi also suggested the brave kids not to take this achievement as a final goal but as a start.
Twenty-five children, including 12 girls and 13 boys, have been selected for the National Bravery Awards 2016. Four of the awards have been given posthumously. The coveted Bharat Award has been conferred on eight-year-old Late Km. Tarh Peeju of Arunachal Pradesh, who sacrificed her life in an attempt to save two of her friends from drowning.
