Novelist Amitav Ghosh honoured with Jnanpith Award 2018

Noted English Author Amitav Ghosh has been honoured with this year’s literary award, Jnanpith Award. “The novelist has been awarded for his outstanding contribution towards literature”, Bharatiya Jnanpith announced Friday.

The Bharatiya Jnanpith, a literary organisation based in New Delhi, has been conferring the Jnanpith Award on writers every year since 1965.

“Amitav Ghosh is a path- breaking novelist. In his novels, Ghosh treads through historical settings to the modern era and weaves a space where the past connects with the present in relevant ways. His fiction is endowed with extraordinary depth and substance through his academic training as a historian and a social anthropologist.”

The writer took to his official Twitter account to share his joy.


Ghosh’s works include The Circle of Reason (1986), Shadow Lines (1988), The Calcutta Chromosome (1995) and Sea of Poppies (2008).
