Jaipur Literature Festival 2015: Jhumpa Lahiri wins the 2015 DSC Prize for literature; takes home a cheque for $50,000
The prize was given by Pulitzer Prize winning poet Vijay Shesadri at a ceremony at the ongoing Jaipur Literature Festival.

Jaipur: Indian-American author Jhumpa Lahiri today won the $50,000 DSC Prize for Literature, one of South Asia's top literary awards for her book 'The Lowland'.

The prize celebrates writing on the South Asian region from writers across the globe and is given to the best novel or translations into English, of a work on or about the region.

The prize was given by Pulitzer Prize winning poet Vijay Shesadri at a ceremony at the ongoing Jaipur Literature Festival.

"This is an enormous honour for 'Lowland' and for me personally. I wish I was there in person to receive the award," Lahiri told PTI over the phone.

Lahiri trumped Indian author Shamsur Rahman Faruqi, who was nominated for his novel translated from Urdu, besides Pakistani writer Kamila Shamsie, London-based Sri Lankan author Romesh Gunesekera, and first-time novelist Bilal Tanweer from Pakistan.

'The Lowland', which weaves a tale of two brothers set in Kolkata of the 1960s was nominated for the 2013 Man Booker Prize but did not win it.

The event also saw organisers announcing that the DSC Prize won't be announced at JLF from next year and instead pick one South Asian country for the award ceremony.

Publisher Caroline Newbury accepted the award on behalf of Lahiri.
