19 of the 24 children selected for the National Bravery Award – 2009 are participated in the Republic Day parade in New Delhi. Five of the children lost their lives and awarded earlier.

Although every year these brave children take ride on Elephants and get opportunity to salute PM, President and many other ministers, this year they didn’t get ride on elephant. They were riding in 5 open Military Jeeps.
