Arundhathi Subramaniam Wins Khushwant Singh Memorial Prize For Poetry | Arts
Arundhathi Subramaniam has won the Khushwant Singh Memorial Prize for Poetry with her work titled When God is a Traveller. The achievement was announced at the ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival which was attended by over 2,500 fans of poetry. Ms. Subramaniam said about the award, “I am delighted. Particularly given what a muted art poetry is, a prize like this is a reminder that it has value — even in the noisy world we inhabit”. The award was established earlier this year by Suhel Seth in memory of the late Khushwant Singh and is open to Indian poets writing in English or Indian language translation.
