Celebrating Life Awards were started in 2014 by Prama Jyoti Foundation. These are memorial awards given in memory of our friends from IITR 84 batch, who left us too early in life.
The thought that prevailed behind these awards is that we should always remember our loved ones who are no more with us with a sense of joy and recall the good times that we spent with them during their life. We should celebrate their life instead of mourning their death.
Since 2014, these annual awards were given every year during charter day ceremony on 25th November, the alumni day of IITR.
Families of the departed souls were invited by PJF to give awards to the students of IITR in various Academic and non-academic fields.
