    In which cities the great personalities honored with Bharat Ratna live?

    The Bharat Ratna is the highest civilian award of India. It was instituted in the year 1954 and so far total 45 persons have been decorated with this distinction. Two non-Indian distinguished personalities - Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan and Nelson Mandela have also been awarded Bharat Ratna.

    Many Bharat Ratna were awarded posthumously also. However, we are fortunate enough to have many living Bharat Ratna among us.

    Have you ever met or even seen a Bharat Ratna in person i.e. not in television shows? In which cities, they live in India or abroad? Let us compile such information to remember as a mark of our respect to them.

    My contribution is Sachin Tendulkar who live in Mumbai.

    According to my knowledge, only two persons, one Indian and one foreigner who have received Bharat Ratna are still alive. One is Mr. Amartya Sen from Bengal and the other is Mr. Nelson Mandela from South Africa .
