Remembering Amrita Pritam

Amrita Pritam - the name that does not need any introduction even to those who are not much into reading. Reflecting back on the life that she lived and the fearlessness with which she penned down the ordeals and vulnerability associated with one's being a woman was way ahead of her times.

Surely, it requires much courage to be a writer. To pen down one's soul on a piece of paper and then have the fortitude to face the world, the remarks, and the judgements. So much so that even if putting up the caricature of an imaginary character, the reader is more inclined to perceive it as the writer's own experience. Wicked but true!

While we celebrate her 100th birth anniversary today, it is vital that we realize the valour she must have possessed to come up with her writings to the world in her times. A life well lived!
