Uma Shankar Singh

Uma Shankar is a 12 year kid from Delhi. He is one of the National Bravery Award Winners for 2011. He would be getting Bapu Gaidhani Award under this category
He was on his way to school in a bus. Just ahead was an overcrowded minibus.
Unable to negotiate a curve, the minibus suddenly overturned. Trapped under it were mostly schoolchildren like him, bleeding. Shankar jumped out of his bus to rescue the children.
Asking the passengers who escaped unhurt to lift the bus, the boy crawled underneath and pulled out the kids. Now, they had to be rushed to hospital. Shankar flagged down motorists but nobody would stop.
So he lunged in front of two moving cars. The cars stopped. Six of the injured were rushed to hospital, five of whom survived.
