We all have mother-tongue but somehow tend to communicate mostly in English as this is the common language for written and verbal communication.

Connect with the mother tongue is crucial since there’s so much richness to it in terms of literature, history and of course, it’s the language of our forefathers. We have this responsibility to pass on the language heritage to our kids and that’s why initiatives like Prerna (Inspiration) awards by Singapore Language Organisation have to be supported.

I have been associated with Prerna Awards since 2016. The growth that this award ceremony has shown is very heartening. Singapore Language Organisation & Prerna Awards aims to create an international platform to connect the world with the rich indigenous languages & literature in an engaging manner with national & international level events & competitions.
