SIVASAGAR, Dec 2: Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Parishad (AJYP) North Lakhimpur in association with Lakhimpur Jila Sahitya Sabha conferred “Bor Asom Samannay Bota” to Padmashree Imran Shah in his Sivasagar Dhai Ali residence on Thursday. The award carries a citation, Rs 25,000 in cash, memento, gamosa, sarai, muga robe, japi and books. Receiving the award Shah said that he does not remember what inspired him to write in early years, whether it was gazing at the star lit sky from an open field at night or listening to different dialects, languages of our rich tribal society. Such activity can enrich our minds and may inspire anyone to write.
The meeting held on the occasion was attended by Juga Gogoi, president Sivasagar Zilla Sahitya Sabha.
