Filipinos recipients of Dr Asha Bhargava Memorial Awards 2013 At WIN Festival of Love Literature and Life  
By Ashok Bhargava, President of WIN
March 28, 2013

On March 23, 2013, a lovely spring day in Richmond, British Columbia, the Writers International Network Canada (WIN) held its Second Annual Literary Festival and Dr. Asha Bhargava Memorial Awards Celebrations to acknowledge and honor some of Canada’s Best writers, poets, volunteers and artists.

So many writers, poets and artists strive very hard for recognition but it never comes their way. They never receive the honor they deserve. That’s why an organization like “Writers International Network (WIN) Canada” was founded to discover, nourish and recognize writers and artists to inspire them to keep on working hard. Some of the objectives of WIN are - foster talent through award and recognition, encourage cultural activities to inspire arts, creativity and volunteerism, inspire people by touching minds and hearts and promote mutual respect and peaceful coexistence.
