The article deals with the life and creative works of Amrita Pritam (1919-2995). She was an outstanding Indian writer and poet, who wrote in Punjabi. She is considered the first prominent woman Punjabipoet, novelist, and essayist, and the leading 20th-century poet of the Punjabi language, who is equally loved on both sides of the India-Pakistan border.
