Arunachalee girl selected for Nat Bravery Award

Ipi Basar has been selected for the National Bravery Award.

Itanagar: Arunachalee girl Ipi Basar has been selected as one of the awardees at the National Bravery Award which will be presented by the Prime Minister in New Delhi during January next year.

Ipi will also participate in the Republic Day Parade 2011, official sources informed today.

Ipi risked her own life to save the lives of two others in the September 2009 inferno at Nyigam village in West Siang district.

She had saved the life of a 70-year-old completely paralysed Yompu Basar, her next door neighbour and mother of Jumnya Basar, a teacher.
She lost no time, jumped into fire and saved the septuagenarian and 4-year-old Pompi Basar, who refused to leave her loving granny to die inside the burning house. Ipi forcefully picked up Pompi first and despite getting her hand burnt entered the house again to rescue the immobile old lady who by then had sustained burn injuries on her leg.

Her courage and determination helped her to pick up the heavily-weighed woman.

All showered praises on Ipi, daughter of ASM Toi Basar, for saving the duo`s life.
For her brave act, the state government and Arunachal Press Club (APC) have already felicitated Ipi.
