Publisher's Summary

Meri Priya Kahaniyaan contains the favourite stories by the fierce and celebrated poet Amrita Pritam, selected by her. Amrita Pritam, the first female Punjabi poet, novelist, and essayist, and the leading voice of 20th-century Indian literature, was awarded Jnanpith in the year 1982. She authored more than a hundred compositions and has left a special mark in the stories, just like her poems, which are about female sexuality, self-realisation and the pain of loss at a time when women mostly wrote on conservative themes. 

Amrita Pritam portrays the love and compassion that pervades the female heart. Stories filled with such poignant expression are presented to the listeners in this compilation. 

She dedicated these stories to those stories that have not been included in the book.  

Amrita Pritam has been translated well and is loved equally in India and Pakistan.

Please note: This audiobook is in Hindi.

स्त्री मन को उकेरने वाले बोलते चित्र

यह कहानियां नहीं, बोलते चित्र है जिसे बड़ी सहजता और संवेदनशीलता से एक महान कथाकार अमृता प्रीतम ने उभारा है, जो स्त्रियों के मन की पीड़ा कैनवस पर बिखेर देती है, जहां महिला तमाम बंधनो, रीति-रिवाजों और पूर्वाग्रहों का शिकार रही है. इन रीति-रिवाजों के आलम में किस तरह से पितृसत्तात्मक समाज उनका शोषण करता आया है, उसका भी उन्होंने इस से चित्रण किया हैं कि तरह रहेगी कोई भी संवेदनशील मनुष्य विचलित हो जाए. यह कहानियां आपको हिला कर रख देंगी और आप अंदर से सोचने पर मजबूर हो जाएंगे।

A beautiful experience

it has been the same feeling as if Amrita Pritam herself were narrating those beautiful stories touching the intricate and sensitive parts of human souls. Basically knowing oneself through the characters of those stories by herself. The narrator's voice and style have been just one place below the top of the reasons why I liked this audible book. Of course the topmost reason has to be the stories themselves by none other than Amrita Pritam.

Brilliant!

Loved the way Malvika Nirajan narrated all these excellent stories with wonderful delivery of words, one can easily visualize the story through her words.
Amrita jee perfectly penned the pain and suffering of young women in her own unique style, simple and subtle yet captivating.
