This year the speculation is rife for Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Subhash Chandra Bose to be honoured with highest civilian award.
If AB Vajpayee gets honoured with the award he will be the 44th recipient of the award since it's launch 2nd January 1954.
The first people to get honoured with Bharat Ratna on the same year, 1954 were C. Rajagopalachari, Eminent Scientist Prof CV Raman and First Vice President of India Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan.
We wish both Ab Vajpayee and Subhash Chandra Bose to be conferred with Bharat Rathna this year.
Generally prime Minister of India consider any name for the recommendation to the president of India. This year Prime Minister Narendra Modi has recommended the above two names to the president. On 15th August 2014, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be announcing the name who would be conferred with the award this year.
