Bharat Ratna Sri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Awards for Innovation
The daring decision to go nuclear by way of Pokharan-2 expounded to the entire world that a New India has arrived on the global pedestal.
An antiquated civilization of over 125 Crore people has an innovative way of life deeply ingrained in its very worldview.
This intrinsic potential of the Indian people was duly unleashed by its very admirable Prime Minister Sri Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
ReTHINK INDIA has thereby chosen to ascribe these felicitations in his very name as a solemn tribute to the man who initiated it all
in the first place which is now being duly furthered by leaps and bounds by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
These awards are being extended to an eclectic mix of Institutions/Individuals of the Nation which have come forward
with a firm daring and introduced out of the box innovations in further enriching the Indian National Narrative in due consonance with her intrinsic life force & spirit of being.
