Bhai Baldeep Singh brings us another good news. Two Punjabi Canadians poets, Navtej Bharti and Ajmer Rode, have been chosen for the Anād Kāv Sanmān 2010.
Poet Dr. Jaswant Singh Neki has been conferred the Anād Sanmān for the year 2010.
Based in India, these lifetime achievement awards were initiated by Anad Foundation in 2008 to commemorate the life and works of Punjabi poet Bibi Baljit Kaur Tulsi. The first poet honored was Surjit Patar in 2008, and last year, Uddari’s very own Amarjit Chandan received the award.
Congratulations to Dr. Jaswant Singh Neki, Navtej Bharti and Ajmer Rode, and to their families and communities in India, Canada and elsewhere.
