Junglee Phool authored by Dr Joram Yalam Nabam has been unanimously selected for the 12th Ayodhya Prasad Khatri Smriti Award -2019. The selection was done by a three-member selection committee comprising Dr Veer Bharat Talwar, Prof Ravinder Kumar Verma and Viren Nanda.

Dr Joram Yalam Nabam is the first author from North East to receive this award for literature work in any language.  Junglee Phool is the first novel written by the author. This historical novel portrays the truth in a new and creative form. Deviating from common folklore, the work revolves around the aspects of immortality and the positive aspects of Abotani. It is a micro analysis on Abotani who is the legendary father figure of the Tani community. This is a courageous work in micro analysis on Abotani with creativity and progressive attitude impounded with deep thoughts.

The word ‘Junglee’ in the title of the book means “to be with the Nature, to walk with nature, to smile with flowers, listen to the songs of the river and the inner voice of one’s heart. It is to walk in the stony mountains and the courage to face the concept of fear. The award will be conferred in the month of November this year at Muzaffarpur, Bihar. This award is instituted in name of a prominent writer in Hindi literature — Ayodhya Prasad Khatri.
