In her address, Saara  said that it was good to see Anupama Prasad conferred  the award for her writings. Students should develop an interest  in reading newspapers and novels to gain knowledge, she said and also exhorted students to fight against injustice in society.

Speaking on the occasion writer Srinivas Kakaliya said that  Saara Aboobakker had to face several challenges  and criticism for her writings against  some of the practices in the society. Her stories narrate Muslim lives in the areas bordering Karnataka and Kerala, focusing on the inequality and injustices meted out to women by the male society. Her writings are an inspiration for other writers, said Srinivas.

Principal of St.Agnes College Prof Supriya, Shaila U and others were present.
