KATHMANDU: Jhamak Kumari Ghimire, a handcapped writer, has bagged this year's Madan Puraskar, Nepal's most prestigious literary award, for her autobiography 'Jeevan Kaanda ki Phool'.

Likewise, the Madan Puraskar Guthi has decided to honour poet Durgalal Shrestha with the Jagadamba Shree award for his contribution to the Nepali literature. Shrestha is the lyricist of popular song 'Phool ko Aankha maa Phoolai Sansara', which was sung by Aani Chhoying Dolma.

The awards would be conferred on Ghimire and Shrestha amid a special function in Patan, Lalitpur later in September.

She was born with a severe disability that has prevented her from using her arms, and suffers from limited movement of her body and slurred speech.

Using her toes to write, she trod into the Nepali literature with the start of new millennium at the age of 19.

She has penned many anthologies of poems, stories and essays besides regularly contributing to newspapers as a columnist.
