    Raman Magsaysay Award winning Indians

    The Ramon Magsaysay Award is considered as the Asia’s Nobel prize. In the past five decades, the award has been bestowed on over 300 outstanding men, women and organizations whose selfless service has provided solutions to some of the most uncivilized problems of human development.

    The Ramon Magsaysay award was established in April, 1957. This award was created to commemorate Ramon Magsaysay, the late president of Philippines. The Ramon Magsaysay Award, Asia’s premier prize and highest honour, celebrates greatness of spirit and transformative leadership in Asia.  The Award is presented in formal ceremonies in Manila, Philippines on August 31st, the birth anniversary of the much-esteemed Philippines President whose ideals inspired the Award’s creation. This award is given in 6 categories.

    These categories are:

    1. Government services (GS)

    2. Public services (PS)

    3. Community leadership(CL)

    4. Journalism, literature & creative communication arts (JLCCA)

    5. Peace and International Understanding (PIU)

    6. Emergent leadership (EL)

    From the year 2009, The Ramon Magsaysay award foundation has done away with the practice of awarding the award in the above six categories. The Ramon Magsaysay award is often considered Asia’s Nobel Prize.
