The president said: "This was an unusual gesture because most former winners of the Nobel Prize from India had kept their awards in their respective institutions, including Rabindra Nath Tagore whose medal was housed in Viswa Bharati at Santiniketan."

The president commended Satyarthi for the excellent work he was doing in the field of child rights.
