New Delhi, Nov 26 (IANS) Bollywood actress Kajol and filmmaker Pritish Nandy were honoured here Wednesday for their work towards educating underprivileged children by a confederation of NGOs.

An initiative of iCONGO and the Khemka Foundation, the Karamveer Puraskar awards recognise individuals who have been pivotal in leading change by being committed to social issues.

'In a country of almost 1.2 billion Indians, we have many awards for movie stars and other achiever awards launched by tobacco, FMCG, media and beverage brands as marketing campaigns but we are yet to recognize the real life unsung heroes who believe that it is better to light a candle than curse the darkness,' said Jeroninio Almeida, founder and chief volunteer, iCONGO in a release.

Others who were conferred with the awards included Bhavna Talwar, Nitin Das, Akanksha Joshi, Ashok Kurien, Vandana Shah, Geeta Chandran, Gautam Ghosh, Ritika Sahni and Lushin Dubey among others.
