The President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee conferred the 51st Jnanpith Award on the renowned writer, Dr. Raghuveer Chaudhari. The Jnanpith Award is an Indian literary award presented annually by the Bharatiya Jnanpith and is given to an author for the “outstanding contribution towards literature”. Instituted in 1961.
According to President, eminent scholar and a Gandhian in spirit and behaviour, Dr. Chaudhari represents the fluid brilliance that characterizes Indias pluralistic literary genius. It is indeed an example of his brilliant fluidity that an author, who strove to master Hindi academically, expressed himself in Gujarati in his literary pursuit.
