Noted writer KP Ramanunni has been chosen for this year's Kendra Sahitya Akademi Award for his novel Daivathinte Pusthakam (God's Own Book).

The award carries a purse of Rs 1 lakh, a plaque and a citation. 

The atmosphere of religious amity that Ramanunni adopted in his works Sufi Paranja Katha, Charama Varshikam and Jeevithathinte Pusthakam can be seen in Daivathinte Pusthakam also.
