Anita Gopalan wins 2016 PEN/Heim Translation Fund Grants

Translator and artist Anita Gopalan has awarded with the 2016 PEN/Heim Translation Fund Grants for her English translation of Hindi novel Simsim by Geet Chaturvedi. Gopalan is the second Indian translator to be selected for the grant. Her novel Simsim was first published in 2008. It is recognized for its groundbreaking contribution to contemporary Hindi fiction. The book narrates the clash between two Indias, that is one old and traditional, and the other driven by consumerism and corporate greed.

Ms. Gopalan, is from Bengaluru and graduated from BITS Pilani in Computer Science and Mathematics, has worked in the banking technology sector for many years. Her translations have appeared in several international journals. She will be honoured at the 2017 PEN Literary Awards Ceremony in New York in February. The PEN America is a renowned literary organisation of the United States which was established in 2003. IT has been renamed in the honour of Heim. The Grants are awarded each year to a select number of literary translators based on quality of translation as well as the originality and importance of the original work.

1. Name the person who has won the 2016  PEN/Heim Translation Fund Grants?
2. For which novel Ms. Anita has awarded with the PEN/Heim Translation Fund Grants?
