Nirupama Borgohain to return award

The diabolic tentacles in Dadri have forced yet another litterateur to return the coveted award. She is none other than Niropama Borgohain who is all set to return the Sahitya Akademy award she received in 1996 for her novel Abhijatri.

She took the decision hours after Homen Borgohain confirmed the return of the award joining the award winning authors’ chorus against the incident in Dadri where prime minister Narendra Modi maintains stoic silence.
