Guwahati, April 6: "To inspire the new women writers of the Northeast, Asom Lekhika Sanstha (ALS) is awarding a fellowship of Rs 50,000 to two writers in a year. The award will be provided by Dr. Nripen Borkotoky, husband of social activist late Manju Borkotoky, who was in London," said Niru Sarma Porajuli, chief secretary of ALS in a press conference at Guwahati Press Club today. The ALS promotes literary translation from other languages to Assamese so that Assamese can read books written in other languages too and develop their knowledge. Chief patron of ALS, Mrilini Devi, said: "We always translate books from other languages to Assamese. We should also translate Assamese books to other languages so that Assamese literature can be spread in the other parts of the world. Through translation literature, we can have the taste of the literatures of other languages too."
