Why sponsor The Dhahan Prize?
The Dhahan Prize is presented by Canada India Education Society.
The Dhahan Prize celebrates the rich culture and transnational heritage of Punjabi literature. The prize aims to promote the growth of Punjabi language globally, as well as encourage new, emerging and established writers working in the two Punjabi scripts, Gurmukhi and Shahmukhi.
Modern Punjabi literature is transnational in scope and, at the same time, embedded in the rich cultural and literary traditions of Punjab. Punjabi literature expresses the unique cultural ethos of this global community, describing the social, cultural, and political lives of Punjabis in South Asia and around the world.
