Vayalar Award 2011 for K P Ramanunni

Noted Malayalam writer KP Ramanunni has been selected for the Vayalar Rama Varma award 2011. His latest novel 'Jeevithathinte Pusthakam' (The Book of Life) is the work that won the award for him. Vayalar Award carries the sum of Rs. 25000, a certificate and a bronze sculpture designed by Kanayi Kunhiraman.
K P Ramanunni is famous among the contemporary Malayalam writers. He has won Kerala Sahitya Academi Award and a few other awards for his novel 'Sufi Paranja Katha' (What the Sufi Said).
