Madan Puraskar felicitation ceremony held virtually
The Madan Puraskar Guthi organized a virtual ‘Madan Puraskar and Jagdambashree Puraskar Ceremony’ on Sunday. The annual award ceremony has been completed online for the first time. The Guthi broadcasted the ceremony live online, due to the pandemic.
Shekhar Pathak, a historian from Nainital, India, gave a scholarly discourse on the history of the border around the Mahakali River.
Senior musician Shanti Thatal, who has been honored with the Jagdambashree Puraskar, spoke from Darjeeling. Similarly, Chandra Prakash Baniya, winner of the 2076 BS Madan Puraskar for the novel Maharani, read his remarks from Pokhara.
Speaking on the occasion, musician Thatal said that there is no limit to music and she was proud to be dedicated to the service of Nepali music.
Madan Puraskar winner, novelist Chandra Prakash Baniya, on the other hand, admitted that the novel he wrote about an event in history became a literary treat because of the award.
At the beginning of the program, a team of musicians performed a welcome tune. On behalf of the organizers, Kunda Dixit, Chairman of Madan Puraskar Guthi, expressed his gratitude. The technical coordination of the program was done from the office of Guthi Patan Dhoka.
Madan Puraskar Guthi has been giving Madan Puraskar since 2013 BS and Jagdambashree Puraskar since 2045 BS.
