Literature awards site---- Bedtime story

Literature awards as the name suggest it is given for literary work. Writing is an art that is not practiced by all. It is not like cricket that anyone takes up the moment they are born. This requires imagination and that is possible only if one has knowledge. We are surrounded by knowledge where ever we go and so it is up to us as to how much we can take in or absorb. Knowledge is food for the mind and it is we who have to feed it. No knowledge is free and we have to pay a price for it.

Young writers obviously have young ideas through young minds. One can browse through current and past literary winners and their works at the sites which can be downloaded from any cyber point.
