DD News Published on Aug 31, 2019
Today is the 100th birth anniversary of Indian novelist, essayist and poet Amrita Pritam.
Google has honoured the day with a doodle, which is a reference to her autobiography Kala Gulab, which revealed many details of her personal life that acted as catalyst to help women speak more openly about their experiences with love and marriage.
Amrita Pritam, considered the greatest 20th-century Punjabi poet, has published 28 novels including Pinjar, a tale set during the time of partition, which was also adapted into a movie.
