I won 14 prizes, the highest by any writer, in the XVI All India Competition for Writers of Children's Books: 2001. The competition was organised by Children's Book Trust (CBT), New Delhi, a trailblazer in the field of children's literature. I won prizes in seven categories.
In the competition conducted by CBT in 1999 I had bagged four prizes.

The award winning stories have a found a place in several books published by CBT as a part of its prestigious Golden Set series.

I had the privilege of being invited to chair a working session at the Asian Conference on Story Telling to Promote the Reading Habit in Children, held at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi, in  September, 2005.

At the end of the session I was felicitated by Mrs. Neelima Sinha, President, Association of Writers and Illustrators of Children (AWIC).

In September 2007, I  was invited to  address  a  plenary session at the International Conference on Story Telling to Promote the Reading Habit in Children, held at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi.  I also had the opportunity to tell a tale at the ‘Story Telling Festival’ held as a part of the  conference. The kids loved the story as much as I enjoyed telling it.
Both the Conferences were  organised by AWIC. 

I  had the rare honour of presenting a paper    at the 31st IBBY  World Congress-2008 held in Copenhagen, Denmark  in the second week of September, 2008. The paper won rave reviews and accolades both for the substance as well as the style of presentation. I had gone on an invitation by the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY) to address the Congress which was attended by writers, publishers, illustrators and research scholars from   71 countries across  the globe.
