GUWAHATI, June 15 - Eminent litterateur from Arunachal Pradesh, Yeshe Dorje Thongchi has been chosen for Sarhad�s Bhupen Hazarika Award 2017.

The award will be conferred on Thongchi � who writes in Assamese � at a function to be held in Jammu and Kashmir in September this year. It also aims at creating a strong bond between Maharashtra and the North East.

Instituted in 2012, the award seeks to honour a person from the North East who has rendered an outstanding work at national and international levels.

Born on June 13, 1952 at village Jigaon of the present-day West Kameng district of Arunachal Pradesh, Thongchi has so far written about a dozen novels, and numerous short stories and plays � all in Assamese � a language over which he has a wonderful command. His most well-known novels include Mauna Oonth Mukhar Hriday and Sav Kata Manuh.

Thongchi, whose theme is mostly about the little-known communities of Arunachal Pradesh, is said to be the first author to have actually taken their inside stories to the outside world.
