Chandra Prakash Deval, the famous Rajasthani poet, has been conferred with the prestigious 23rd Bihari Puraskar for the year 2013.

The award was conferred by K K Birla Foundation for 'Hirna ! Maun Saadh Van Charna', a poetic work published in 2010 and carries a cash reward of Rs 100,000, citation and a plaque.

Bihari Puraskar literary award is reserved only for Rajasthani writers who have been living in the state for at least seven years besides original inhabitants living anywhere in India.

The selection committee was headed by Prof Nand Kishore Acharya, former Professor of Rampuria College, Bikaner.

Mr Deval, born in a Goteepa village in Udaipur is a known poet and translator creating democratic consciousness with portrayal of Rajasthan folk lives and hidden meanings of love, compassion and social justice in poetic tradition. He has translated select poems from Bangala, Oriya, Gujarati, Hindi and Punjabi poets into Rajasthani.

A recipient of Padma Shri and Sahitya Academi awards, Mr Deval has also translated Dostoevsky's famous novel 'Crime and Punishment' and Samuel Beckett's play 'Waiting for Godot'.

In 'Hirna ! Maun Saadh Van Charna', a multi-dimensional anthology, the author has laboured to create a silent movement in the development of human consciousness and has surpassed all his previous achievements, a Birla Foundation release said. UNI MCN BDP 1543 NNNN
