Prof. Ram Charan

Chair of Yashraj Bharati Samman Grand Jury
Message From The Chair Of Jury

Who is a great leader!? What does he/she do!?

For leaders, every day is a new day. Why? Because they understand that the World around them is reconstituted at every moment.  

Great leaders reflect on the present and the past, to learn lessons and insights from their own actions as well as from others. They possess a divine discontent with the status quo. They are resilient and driven to take change to the next level, regardless of the difficulties or impossible hurdles that they face.

They have one foot in the present and the other in the future. In essence, the future is shaped by all human beings, but it is particularly the work of great leaders which help create a worthwhile reality. 

They are truly an inspiration for generations to come. Therefore, they deserve their due recognition and respect! 

I am extremely delighted that Yashraj Bharati Samman has been instituted do show our admiration and gratitude towards those who are doing outstanding work for the betterment of Indian society.

The Yashraj Bharati Samman will go a long way in motivating those Indians who stand tall and courageous in the fight for equality and ethics. I am sure that the Yashraj Bharati Samman will be a beacon in the field of social transformation and will also encourage younger generations to aspire towards working for social change and recognition in this field.

I am truly honoured and proud that I have been given the opportunity to be the chair of the Grand jury for the first annual Yashraj Bharati Samman and be a part of this journey…

Message From The Chairman of Yashraj Research Foundation

No positive change happens overnight! It takes hard work, perseverance and above all conviction in the goodness of humanity to bring about real change.

The Yashraj Bharati Samman has been instituted to recognise the consistent actions of leaders of social transformation in India and to show our respect towards their efforts. 

The primary intention of the Yashraj Bharati Samman is to identify, acknowledge and establish a movement of gratitude that celebrates the work of extraordinary citizens and organisations fighting for the betterment of our great nation. The Yashraj Bharati Samman is a humble initiative by the Yashraj Research Foundation to show our reverence for the work of change-makers in Indian society. 

As we endeavour to celebrate the change-makers who bring about holistic development in society whilst preserving the essence of being human, it is also our hope, that the Yashraj Bharati Samman will go on to bring them world-wide recognition that they genuinely deserve.

India is a repository of outstanding, brilliant minds and courageous spirits fighting for social transformation. We are truly happy to have found this opportunity to recognise the best in our society. We thank everyone who have shown belief in our vison and have agreed to be a part of, what would surely be, a beautiful journey ahead. 

Please accept my heartiest welcome on behalf of the entire Yashraj Research Foundation and Yashraj Bharati Samman family!”
