Gaganendranath Dash has refused to accept the Sahitya Akademy Award. He was selected in 2011 to get the award for 2010 but could not get it because the decision was challenged in the Orissa high court. Later the akademy lost the case. Again this year his name is in the list of winners. Now he humbly refused to accept the award.
