New Delhi, Sept.8 (ANI): Charkha Development Communication Network on Tuesday announced the Sanjoy Ghose Rural Reporting Awards (Ladakh) 2015.
With the aim of recognising the work of writers who have shown the zeal to go beyond the usual and highlight invisible development issues of the women living in the rural borderlands, Charkha Development Communication Network, a Delhi-based nonprofit organization, has announced the the Sanjoy Ghose Rural Reporting Awards (Ladakh) 2015. A total of four awards of Rs 20,000 each will be given to well-researched and sharply-focused unpublished writings that are expected to highlight little-known strengths and travails of the women of this remote but significant part of India with a view to bringing them into the mainstream development fold.
The Awards, inspired by Charkha’s founder, Sanjoy Ghose who worked towards the social and economic inclusion of rural marginalised communities through the creative use of media, offer an opportunity for writers to delve into the challenges faced by the women of rural disadvantaged communities and reflect the status of development as perceived by these women.
