National Literary Award for Jayant Kaikini Durable Link to this BLOG
The Kusumagraj Foudation and selected Kannada writer-poet Jayanth Kaikini for their first Kusumagraj National Literary award.

Kusumagraj was a noted writer-poet of Marathi language, and I am delighted that such institutions carry on the meritorious work of recognizing true talent.

The Kaikinis and the Kamats are bound together by generations of mutual respect, friendship and warmth, and I am as excited as a member of my family has won this award!

My hearty congratulations to Jayant.

Jayant Kaikini has been blessed with uncanny flair for words and imagination. His talent to coin alankaras (grammatical figures of speech) is unbelievable. Very rarely do we see both a parent and a child excel in the field of literature. Gourish and Jayant belong to that select set of (Kuvempu and Tejasvi), and (DVG and B.G.L. Swamy).

I have read some of Kaikini's short stories. They are graphic and relive the romance of rural and beautiful India. His songs, used in Kannada movies are a rage. Jayant Kaikini is a worthy winner of this award.
