Motivational Strips and Gujarat Sahitya Akademi Honours 350 Writers from 80 countries, During India’s 74th Independence Day

The world of literature during second half of 2020, has witnessed rampant growth due to pandemic and subsequent lockdown, opening up wider scope and opportunities for connoisseurs of the pen art. Many writers pursued their literary passion to keep their restricted moments of social distancing,  on a productive front.

Motivational Strips being the world’s most active writers forum and Gujarat Sahitya Academy being India’s premium literary institution (under the state government of Gujarat) joined hands to honour India’s most prominent poets during India’s 74th year of independence. Both the entities also decided to celebrate 74th Independence Day of India, by honouring writers from all over the world apart from the national front. Thus the writers who were fortunate enough to be selected this year is as below.
