Amrita Pritam, considered the first eminent female Punjabi writer, novelist, and poet of the 20th century, is known as the most important voice for the women in Punjabi Literature. She first published her book – Amrit Lehran at the age of 16. Some of her award-winning works include – the poem "Ajj akhaan Waris Shah nu” which went on to become the most poignant reminder of the horrors of Partition, Pinjar -  which narrated the story of partition riots along with the crisis of women who suffered during the times (later turned into a movie), Sunehadey, Kagaj te Canvas and many more…. She was honoured with prestigious awards like the ‘Sahitya Akademi,’ ‘Bharatiya Jnanpith,’ and ‘Padma Vibhushan’ among many others. She also penned an autobiography, in which she expressed her audacity by writing about her personal life, which might be considered ‘controversial’ by many, even in contemporary India


Amrita Pritam in her stories always insisted upon experiencing life, and looking for happiness, in fact, she said – “Women’s sufferings are often depicted in literature. People have no objection to a woman continuing to suffer, or being depicted as a sufferer. It is only when she wants to emerge from that suffering when she tries to live the life she desires, that people oppose her. The women characters in my novels dare to live the life they have imagined. They may or may not succeed, but they make the effort. And it is that effort I write about.”


The production – “Laut Aao Amrita” is an attempt to bring to you some important aspects of Amrita Pritam’s life – her writings, her love, her happiness and her loneliness.
