On the occasion of the 86th birth anniversary of Dr. Shankardayal Singh, I had the distinct honor of receiving the Dr. Shankardayal Singh Award for my contributions to journalism in the last few decades. This auspicious event was held at the Bihar Hindi Sahitya Sammelan in Kadamkuan, organized by “Sahityakunj,” a renowned institution advocating literature, arts, and culture.
The ceremony, presided over by Anil Sulabh, a prominent literary figure and President of Bihar Hindi Sahitya Sammelan, was inaugurated by Dr. C.P. Thakur, former Union Minister. The event was expertly managed by esteemed poets Arvind Akela and Brahmanand, who ensured a seamless flow of proceedings.
Distinguished guests like Rajiv Ranjan Prasad, Global President of the Global Kayastha Conference, and Dr. Kasim Khursheed, an acclaimed international poet, graced the event. Their words painted Dr. Shankardayal Singh as a man of great heart and personality, known for his liberating laughter and generosity.
The highlight of the event was a poetry symposium, featuring illustrious poets such as Dr. Khursheed, Talat Parveen, Jiyalal Arya, and others, who infused the atmosphere with poetic brilliance.
Receiving the Dr. Shankardayal Singh Award is not just an accolade for me; it is a testament to the values and ideals that Dr. Singh embodied in his lifetime. It is a reminder of the responsibility that comes with being a journalist – to pursue truth, to uphold integrity, and to contribute meaningfully to society.
This recognition is both humbling and empowering. It reaffirms my commitment to journalism and motivates me to continue exploring stories that need to be told. It is a beacon that guides me in my journey, inspiring me to uphold the principles of responsible journalism and make a positive impact through my work.
As I reflect on this honor, I extend my heartfelt gratitude to Sahityakunj, the jury, and everyone who has supported me in this journey. This award is not just for me but for every journalist who strives to make a difference through their words and actions.
