Unsung heroes stand out in the 2018 Padma Shri awards list

The Narendra Modi government is going the extra mile to provide a platform for India’s real leaders who otherwise go unrecognized. Since Republic Day of 2016, the government began the practice of honouring ‘unsung heroes’ with the Padma awards. The move is to recognise people who have dedicated their lives to working for the poor or have risen from deprived backgrounds to excel in their fields. Keeping its promise the government recently announced Padma Shri awards for such personalities who made Indians proud across the globe. Here are a few who were honoured with the Padma Shri this Republic Day.
