Bharat Ratna

Bharat Ratna Award Winners – The Bharat Ratna is the highest civilian award of the Republic of India. Instituted in 1954, the award is conferred”at the recognition of exceptional service/performance of the highest order”, without distinction of race, job place, or gender. The award was originally confined to achievements in the arts, literature, science, and public services, but the authorities expanded the standards to include”any area of human effort” in December 2011. The initial recipients of the Bharat Ratna were politician C. Rajagopalachari, philosopher Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, and scientist C. V. Raman, who had been honoured in 1954.
