Anuradha Roy wins big in Galle

Indian writer Anuradha Roy won the prestigious USD 50,000 DSC Prize for South Asian Literature for her novel 'Sleeping on Jupiter' at the Galle Literary Festival in Sri Lanka. Roy was awarded the prize and a unique trophy by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe at a ceremony yesterday evening.

The DSC Prize for South Asian Literature is a literary prize awarded annually to writers of any ethnicity or nationality writing about South Asia themes such as culture, politics, history or people.

The six shortlisted authors in contention for this year's prize were UK-based Indian-origin author Akhil Sharma for 'Family Life', K R Meera's 'Hangwoman' (Translated by J Devika), Mirza Waheed's 'The Book of Gold Leaves', Neel Mukherjee's 'The Lives of Others' and 'Raj Kamal Jha: She Will Build Him A City'. Mark Tully, the chair of the judging panel described Roy's novel as having described "the South Asia setting faithfully and evocatively."
