President Kovind said that ten of them have been for poetry out of the 17 people who have been given the Sahitya Akademi Awards for their works in the Bodo language. This shows that the Bodo writers are naturally drawn to poetry.

“Many women in many different styles write Bodo literature. The Akademi Award for original works has been given to only two women out of all the senior writers who have been given the award. “She should be encouraged to write and ask the BSS to do the same.

The President said that the younger generation needs to be involved in keeping any literature alive and relevant. This is why young writers should be given extra attention.
