Bharath Ratna is the highest civilian honour given for exceptional service towards advancement of Art, Literature and Science and in recognition of Public Service of the highest order. The original specifications for the award called for a circular gold medal, 35 mm in diameter, with the sun and the Hindi legend 'Bharat Ratna' above and a floral wreath below. The reverse was to carry the state emblem and moto. It was to be worn around the neck from a white ribbon. This design was altered after a year. The provision of Bharat Ratna was introduced in 1954. The first ever Indian to receive this award was famous scientist, Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman. Since then many dignitaries each a whiz in varied aspects of their career have received this coveted award.
There is no written provision that Bharat Ratna should be awarded to Indian citizens only. The award has been awarded to a naturalized Indian citizen, Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, better known as mother Teresa and two non-Indians -Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan and Nelson Mandela. It is also not mandatory that Bharat Ratna be awarded every year.
