Thiruvananthapuram: Noted Malayalam writer M T Vasudevan Nair said that the real threat the writer faces is to find a purely fresh theme for his stories. M T was having a speech after recieving Kerala Government’s prestigious Ezhuthachan literary award from Chief Minister Ommen Chandy at Secretariat Darbar hall here. The award carries a cash prize of Rs 1.5 lakh and a citation. “Life has turned so complex today. There was a time when writers commented that We could see the heart of the world when we look to our own hearts. But now, the scene is different. We can’t make sure what happens even in our homes.” MT said.
77-year old prolific and versatile writer who has authored several widely appreciated novels, hundreds of short stories and over 50 film scripts, was chosen for the honour for his outstanding contributions to Malayalam literature and culture. Nair received the country’s highest literary prize, Jnanpith, in 1995 for his novel “Randamuzham”, an exploration into the pshyche of Mahabhratha character Bhim.
