Bharat Ratna for Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru?

Dear Madam,
Bharat Ratna for Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru are certainly most welcome (as suggested by Manish Tiwari) since they are the real Ratnas of Bharat who sacrificed their lives selflessly for the sake of the motherland unlike the cricketers and matinee personalities who pursue the trade as a mere career to earn money.
It is high time instead of honouring the professional brigade(or “freedom fighters” who pledged their devotion to the British to rescue themselves from the detention and torture in prisons) and making a mockery of the dignity of the highest civilian award of the land; selfless martyrs and fighters like Kshudiram Bose, Surya Sen, Rashbehari Bose, Rani Gaidinliu be also awarded Bharat Ratna in the coming years and allow the indebted Indians to pay a token tribute to the unfathomable sacrifice they performed for us.
And when would the selfless Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi be honoured with the highest award who has dedicated his entire life for the sake of the innumerable child labourers, rescuing educating and rehabilitating them?
