In the times of Love and Longing
Full Circle; New Delhi, India; 8121613701 / 9788121613705; Softcover; New; 
The love letters of Amrita and Imroz are an interesting insight into the personalities of two highly creative minds. The reader gets intimate glimpses of the extraordinary relationship between the renowned author and poet and her artist companion.The handwritten letter delivered by the government postal service was the only recourse available to Amrita and Imroz while they charted their careers in different cities, Amrita in Delhi and Imroz in Mumbai. And they discussed each day’s happening with each other, even if it took days for the other to receive the letter.The creative mind yearns for satisfaction, and for love and recognition. These letters offer a peek into these creative minds, they are also a record of social history of those times, a far cry from modern quick service times.., and therein lies the significance of the letters.Amrita Pritam (Aug. 1919 – Oct. 2005) was considered the first and most prominent woman Punjabi poet, novelist and essayist. Her most noted work was Pinjar, in which she created her memorable character, Paro, an epitome of violence against women, the novel was made into an award-winning film.Known as the most important voice for women in Punjabi literature, she became the first woman to win the Sahitya Akademi Award. She also received the Bhartiya Jnanpith, Padma Shri, Padma Vibhushan and India’s highest literary award, given by the Sahitya Akademi, to the “Immortals of literature” for lifetime achievement. 109904
