The tireless efforts of Shauka historian and anthropologist Sher Singh Pangti have finally borne fruit as he has been named by the Pauri Garhwal-based Umesh Dobhal Trust for this year’s award for his contribution to literature and cultural promotion, said Lalit Kothiyal, secretary of the trust.

“The award for popular poetry has gone to Dehradun-based poet Atul Sharma, and Vijay Jardhari, who has been working long to preserve traditional seeds in hill areas of the state, will be awarded,” said Kothiyal. The awards will be presented in a ceremony at Rudrapur on March 25. [more]
