Bharat Ratna is India's highest civilian award awarded for the highest degrees of national service. This service includes artistic literary and scientific achievements as well as recognition of public service of the highest order. Unlike knights holders of the Bharat Ratna carry no special title nor any other honorifics but they do have a place in the Indian order of precedence. The award was established by the first President of India Rajendra Prasad on January 2 1954. Along with other major national honours such as the Padma Vibhushan Padma Bhushan and Padma Shri the awarding of the Bharat Ratna was suspended from July 13 1977 to January 26 1980. The honour has been awarded to forty persons a list which includes two non Indians and a naturalized Indian citizen. Originally the specifications for the award called for a circular gold medal carrying the state emblem and motto among other things. It is uncertain if a design in accordance with the original specifications was ever made. The actual award is designed in the shape of a peepul leaf and carries the Hindi written words Bharat Ratna on the front. 320 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 72875
