Hello and welcome to the Current Affair's Portal of ExamPundit.in. Tamil writer Perumal Murugan will be honoured with the fourth Indian Languages Festival (ILF) ‘Samanvay Bhasha Samman’, organisers said on 5th October.
The prestigious annual award recognises contribution to Indian literature.
Mr. Murugan will receive the award for Madhorubhagan, the novel for which
he had earned the wrath of local groups forcing the author-poet earlier this year to withdraw himself from writing.
The author is set to be awarded on November 28 during the fifth edition of India Habitat Centre’s ILF ‘Samavay-2015’.
Previous winners of the award include Hindi author Ashok Vajpeyi, Gujarati author Chandrakant Topiwala and Odiya writer Sitakant Mahapatra.
