 Nay Pyi Taw, 7 Dec — Vice President Dr Sai Mauk Kham delivered a speech at the prize presentation ceremony for Lifelong National Literary Award and National Literary Award winners at the National Theatre in Yangon on Sunday.
Also present at the ceremony were Vice Speaker of the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw and the Pyithu Hluttaw U Nanda Kyaw Swa, union ministers, the chief minister of Yangon Region, deputy ministers, the commander of Yangon Command, officials, prize winners and their families.
In his speech, the vice president said that doyen literati are more astute in their way of thinking than other common people and are the people who honestly view the world as it stands in order to present the truth as they view it.
So they are required to possess an inborn talent to understand things from the worldly and heavenly outlooks, the vice president added.
Then, the vice president pointed out that it is important to strengthen literature for the promotion and preservation of national culture as it has been proved as a truth in history that extinction of a literature leads to the disappearance of the people of that literature.
Afterwards, the vice president urged doyen literati to write literature that promote the cultures and traditions of ethnic national races whose social and economic conditions and language and culture lag behind others and promote the image of the nation in the new age under the new political system by following the ethic of doyen literati and preserving the tradition of serving the interest of the people and the nation.
Then, the vice president presented lifelong national literary awards to Dr Khin Aye (Maung Khin Min-Danuphyu), Sithu U Tin Hlaing (Ledwintha Saw Chit) and U Myint Kyi (Takatho Myat Soe) and national literary awards for novels to writer Naing Zaw, national literary award for collected short stories to writer Ma Wai (Institute of Economics) and national literary award for collected poems to poet Maung Lwan Naing (Sabaingon).
Afterwards, the vice speaker, union ministers, the chief minister and deputy ministers presented prizes to other national literary award and Sarpaybeikman transcript award winners.
After the prize presentation ceremony, the vice president and party posed for a documentary photo with the award winners and viewed round the books and photos displayed at the ceremony.
On behalf of the Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, Commander of Yangon Command Maj-Gen Tun Tun Naung presented cash awards of K 1 million each to three lifelong national literary award winners, who also won K 2.5 million each for the award.
National literary award winners won K 1.5 million each and the first, the second and the third Sarpaybeikman transcript award winners won K 700,000, K 500,000 and K 300,000 respectively.
