SHILLONG: Editor of U Nongsain Hima, Lambok Thabah, was awarded the Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Award 2011 instituted by the Indian Express group, during a function held in New Delhi on September 9.

Thabah was awarded for his series of stories on denial of PDS items including rice and sugar to more than 20 families for years at Mawsynram village in East Khasi Hills. The families who were ostracized for demanding their rights, however, finally got justice following the reports.

Meanwhile, the Shillong Press Club has extended its heartiest congratulations to U Nongsain Hima for being conferred with the prestigious Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Awards 2011.

“The self explanatory award goes to show that even remote Meghalaya has the capability and sincerity to churn out information that benefits the common man thereby attracting national attention,” SPC said in a statement issued here on Thursday.
