  1. In India why the award is awarded only after when people sacrificed their lives why not when people alive.? Take the example of late DySP Bomto Kamdak who has been awarded the highest state award so called Arunachal Ratna it is too only after he had made the supreme sacrifice of his live. Now this child is also going to award the highest award but she will not receive this award instead her parents will do… What is the use of award when the candidate whom award is awarded has no any knowledge of his deed.. what I meant is that if the government really want to motivate the people then they should award the prize when people is alive not after his/her death..
