Neerja Bhanot Award for dalit widow from Tamil Nadu

New Delhi, Aug. 29. (UNI): The prestigious Neerja Bhanot Award 2001 for Women showing exceptional courage in trying circumstances is to be given to Yasoda, a dalit from Tiruvallore district of Tamil Nadu.

The Rs. 150,000 award, which also comprises a trophy and a citation, is given annually in memory of the young airhostess Neerja Bhanot who gave up her life while saving the lives of hundreds of passengers on board a Pan Am aircraft, hijacked at Karachi Airport in 1986.

The award will be given to Yasoda at a special ceremony at Chandigarh on September 6, the Neerja Bhanot Pan Am Trust said here today.

The award is given to an Indian woman who is subjected to social injustice, on counts such as dowry and desertion, but faces the situation with guts and grit and makes a success of life by assisting other similarly distressed women.

Forty-three-year-old Yasoda is a leader of the Rural Women's Front, which has been working for the integrated development of women for the past 16 years in 60 villages in Tiruvallore district.
