Purba Dutt, May 10, 2011, 12.30pm IST


Santali writer Somai Kisku was recently honoured with the prestigious Tagore Literature Awards 2010, instituted by Samsung in collaboration with Sahitya Akademi.

He was awarded for his work Namalia, first published in the year 2008.

Namalia describes and depicts the lifestyle of the Santal people of 'Namal'. Based on facts, it tells the story of the migration of these people to the rich paddy-growing region of 'Namal' due to the construction of a dam on river Kansavati.
