Marathi Literary Award Renamed After Bal Thackeray
Priyadarshni Academy, a prominent non-governmental organisation (NGO), has decided to confer its Marathi literary awards in the memory of late Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray.

The award, given away every year to a prominent personality in the field of Marathi literature, carries a cash prize of Rs 25,000 and trophy, academy chairman Nanik Rupani said in a statement here today.

The Marathi literary award is being renamed as 'Balasaheb Thackeray Marathi Literary Award' in the memory of the departed Shiv Sena chief, who had contributed a lot to the spread of Marathi language and culture, Rupani said.

The Priyadarshni Academy also presents literary awards in other languages also, such as Sindhi and Hindi.

The literary awards were instituted by the Academy in 1984.

 Good, how about instituting an serbian language award named after Radovan Karadzic,the great bosnian serb playwright? There are many serbs to support him, just like there are many who support Thackeray.That does not legitimize their legacy
