Remember Venkatesh, the 12-year-old who helped an ambulance go through a submerged bridge during the devastating floods in Karnataka?
According to The Quint, the other recipient is a 9-year-old girl, Aarti Kiran Shet, from Uttara Kannada, who saved her two-year-old brother from a charging cow.
Reports state that 22 children are to be presented with these awards on Republic Day on the 26th of January.
So when the ambulance driver pleaded with him and his friends to guide him through the bridge, Venkatesh volunteered and helped guide the vehicle through treacherous roads.
One can only stand back and admire the courage this child showed in the face of such adversity.
