Zee 24 Taas Ananya Sanman 2012 'Honouring the Real Heroes of Maharashtra'

Maharashtra has had a special place in the history of progressive India. It has produced leaders who have made a great contribution to the development of the country in all walks of life. Be it politics, music, sports, films, literature, theatre, fashion, business, social service, farming, journalism or medicine, Maharashtrians have scripted many of India's grand success stories.

In this fame-obsessed time, there are people doing phenomenal work without any expectation of recognition. There are people who have contributed to the society and served their respective fields with the devotion that can inspire many. They have been appreciated well now it's time to give due recognition them, now it's time to honor them!

A man who collects money in the local trains to build a school. Somewhere, in a brothel in Maharashtra, a woman has ignited hope by providing education to hundreds of prostitutes. A coach who helps kids succeed at the international level in the forgotten game of Kabaddi. A police constable who lost his arm while diffusing a bomb. These are the real heroes of our society showing real courage in everyday life. We take it upon ourselves to honour these unsung heroes who, with their undying dedication and passion, are making this world a better place.

Zee 24 Taas, the first 24-hour Marathi news channel takes great pride in felicitating these real heroes of Maharashtra. Zee 24 Taas Ananya Sanman is a unique platform which gives due recognition to these real heroes who have considerably contributed in their sphere of work. People who have done great deal of work in their fields but still go un-recognized and stayed away from limelight.
