Punjab's Amrita Pritam, the first woman writer across all Indian languages to win the Sahitya Akademi Award, is celebrated in a new book titled "Amrita Pritam: The Writer Provocateur."

It includes select poems, fiction excerpts, and articles by scholars, offering fresh insights into her work. The book also features a conversation with actor Deepti Naval, who played Pritam in a play called "Ek Mulaqat."
