“Accepting the prize from Suhel Seth, who instituted it in the memory of late writer and journalist Khushwant Singh, Subramaniam said, ‘Poetry today is a muted form… poets feel inconsequential and unheard. An award like this is far more affirming than I imagine. It says that this art of murmur and whispers still counts.'”
Well put. Keep up the good murmur work.
