The Karmaveer awards have further influenced several awards in India like CNN IBN’s Real Heroes awards, Times of India’s Social Impact awards, The Karmaveer mission is to discover unsung, uncommon and real heroes and our Karmaveers are now being featured in several newspapers and magazines across the world and also the bestselling Karma Kurry – The Hero in me book series. These awards are an integral part of the joy of giving and right every wrong movement which was created by Jerry. Here is what Dr. Varghese Kurien the founder of Amul and our first Karmaveer lifetime achievement award said about the highly coveted and credible Karmaveer awards “Of all the awards I have been honoured with, Karmaveer Puraskaar holds a special place in my heart, since unlike most other awards, one does not need to indulge in any nepotism or lobby with any political or social faction for the Karmaveer award. One can simply earn this honour and recognition by doing something noble to make a difference in our world”.
