Rashmi Narzary Wins the 2016 Sahitya Akademi Bal Puraskar Award!
Rashmi Narzary has won the 2016 Sahitya Akademi Bal Puraskar award (English) for her collection of short stories “His Share of Sky”, which covers various tales revolving around Barsau (a little tribal Bodo boy). The stories narrate the different situations – sometimes hilarious and at other times emotional – in which Barsau lands himself, along with his two brothers and many friends. Every child will relate to the witty and smart Barsau. Though he lives in a rural setting in the north-east of India, his charm and sense of mischief remains universal and timeless.
