Jaipur, January 22, 2015: Jhumpa Lahiri has been announced as the winner of the widely acclaimed DSC Prize for South Asian Literature 2015 for her book The Lowland at the ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival. The US $50,000 DSC Prize along with a unique trophy was awarded by the Chief Guest Vijay Seshadri, the 2014 Pulitzer Prize winner for poetry. As Jhumpa Lahiri was unable to receive the award personally, it was collected on her behalf by her publisher.
