National Bravery Awards are given to brave children in India every year on the eve of 26 January. These awards were started by the Indian Child Welfare Council in 1957. A medal, certificate and cash amount are given as prizes. Financial assistance is also provided to all children till they complete school.On 26 January, these brave children join the Republic Day parade riding on elephants.

Twenty-two children, including 10 girls and 12 boys have been selected for the Indian Council for Child Welfare (ICCW) National Bravery Awards, 2019. One award has been given posthumously.
The gallant children come from 12 different states of India.
The coveted Bharat Award has been conferred on 15-year-old Master Adithya K, who is from Keral. Adithya saved more than 40 lives when a bus they were travelling in bus caught fire in Nepal in May 2019. Just 50 killomentres short of reaching Indian border, the bus caught fire at Daunnein.
Another Kerala resident and award recipient was as brave but not as lucky. The only recipient to recieve the award posthumously is Muhhamed Muhsin EC, who has honoured with the Abhimanyu award.
From Kozhikode, Muhhamed Muhsin risked his life to save three of his friends from drowning in deep sea. The friends survived but Muhsin, their saviour, died. Mushin’s family held back tears and emotions.
The two awardees from J&K Sartaj Mohidin Mughal and Mudasir Ashraf were found with great difficulty. The security forces knocked on their doors to inform them that both had won the bravery award. Mughal saved his family during live shelling from Pakistan. Mughal lives at the Line of Control (LoC) while Mudasir helped IAF and rescue personnel during the IAF chopper crash in Budgam in February 2019.
