According to a press release, he has received the fellowship on Sunday (Nov. 27), in Gurgaon, at the exclusive awards function, which is a part of “iCongo’s Rex Conclave, organised on Nov. 25, 26 and 27 , this year. Rex (www.rexideas.com) is Latin for King and Rex Conclave was the king of all good thought leadership for Change Conclaves (with an eclectic mix of “Rockstar Speakers”, cause-related performers, short film screenings & awards) where ideas speak out to encourage proactive action to change our world, it was added.
We congratulate Amit for possessing the conviction and compassion to stand up, speak out and lead the change with his positive attitude! The management of Rex, which has selected his nomination after thorough due diligence said that they were glad to have found a true champion of social justice issues and wish that more and more citizens gave their time, involvement and humane feelings towards addressing social justice issues and being the change and role models for other citizens to follow, the release added.
Karmaveer Chakra is the national medallion of honour for proactive voluntary citizen action to Be & Lead the Change. These awards were instituted with a simple passion mantra – to recognise real life unsung heroes who believe ‘It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness’.
These chakras recognise and applaud the social commitment of concerned individuals, who have proactively and voluntarily worked for bringing a positive transformation in the society and the world we live in. In today’s world where there are huge apathy and indifference, we feel a paramount need for being not just a good person but also a good citizen who exercises her/ his rights, duties & responsibilities as a concerned, just and humane citizen, it was informed.
The whole idea of the Rex Karmaveer Global Fellowship (RKGF) is to recognise people who have the courage of conviction to think differently and walk the path less trodden and to act on alternative/ innovative ideas which may make a difference in our world. We also believe that every human being has a hero, a leader, a volunteer, a champion of change and a teacher within her or him and only a few people acknowledge and awaken this power within, to help inspire the change.
Rex Karmaveer Global Fellows are people who have the intent to make a difference and/or are already making a difference by being voices of conscience and trying to make a difference in our world with their significant actions to be the change. We firmly believe at RKGF that to change the world we must first change ourselves and then help inspire the change with everyone we meet, know, work and live with, it was informed.
