Bharat Ratna, Atal Bihari Vajpayee

The government of India has announced after a recent meeting of the Union Cabinet, that it will be awarding the highest civilian honor of the nation, the Bharat Ratna, to Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee as well as Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya (posthumously).

Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee is the former Prime Minister of India and one of the most respected veterans of Indian polity. Pandit Malviya (also known as ‘Mahamana’) was an Indian educationalist and freedom fighter. He was the pioneer behind the world renowned Banaras Hindu University.

The Bharat Ratna has been awarded to 43 individuals so far, including names such as C.N.R Rao, Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar.

We believe that Major Dhyan Chand, the legend of Hockey, should also be awarded Bharat Ratna posthumously which would be a great gesture towards him who brought great laurels for the nation.
