Autumn/Winter ’21

Amrita Kaur Pritam

Amrita Kaur Pritam (1919-2005)
Prominent Punjabi poet


Amrita Pritam is considered to be the first prominent female Punjabi poet, novelist, essayist and leading 20th century poet of the Punjabi language. She is also regarded as the most important voice for women in Punjabi literature.

Pritam moved to Lahore in the early 1930’s and lived there until the partition of the subcontinent in 1947. Although she had to migrate from Lahore to India, she remained equally popular in Pakistan throughout her life. Pritam was heart-broken after the partition of Punjab, and is best remembered for her poem, Ajj Aakhan Waris Shah nu (Today I invoke Waris Shah), an elegy to the 18th century Punjabi Poet, an expression of her anguish over massacres during the Partition.

Our menu this season pays respect to my ancestral homeland ‘Punjab’ through Punjabi village food and concepts. I hope it brings you a piece of my culture.
