Pinjar is based on the famous novel by the same name by noted poet writer Amrita Pritamm winner of Gyanpeeth award and various literary awards including the sahitya academy award. Amrita Pritam was also nominated to Rajya Sabha (Upper House of India) for her contribution to Indian literature. Pinjar has been translated into eight languages. Notd writer Khushwant Singh has translated Pinjar in English.In Yugoslavia a radio series based on Pinjar was aired. She was also nominated for the poetess of the millennium for poetry in Punjabi.
The story of Pinjar is set in the backdrop of riots during the partition of India & Pakistan. It's a gripping tale of human spirit to overcome hate with compassion and love. Intolerance, cruelty, kidnapping and rape of women rendered thousands of innocent lives as destitute, yet love and humanism blossomed.
