Begum Mushtari Shafi to receive Ananya Shahitya Award 2017
Writer and freedom fighter Begum Mushtari Shafi has been elected to receive the prestigious Ananya Shahitya Award 2017 for her invaluable contribution to literature in Bangladesh. The award will be presented for the first time outside Dhaka at the TIC Auditorium in Chittagong on December 2. Begum Mushtari Shafi has authored 20 books, and written scores more which are yet to be published. Her husband and younger brother were martyred during the Liberation War. She pioneered the first women-driven printing press and publication in the country. Her family was instrumental in organizing the Shadhin Bangla Betar Kendro. Her home, Mushtari Lodge, was where the radio program first mapped out. She has written widely about her experiences during and after the war. Her book “Women of Chittagong in the Liberation War” was among the first books chronicling women’s lives during 1971. The Ananya Shahitya Award has been presented since 1993. Every year, it honours a woman for her immense contribution to literature. Some of the greatest luminaries of Bengali literature have been acknowledged and honoured since the founding of the prize.
