"This is an age
of information alright but there is little knowledge & absolutely
most striking aspect of Dalip Kaur Tiwana, after her little-girl
laughter that reaches her eyes and lights up her being, is her utter
lack of any pretensions or airs that signify her "writerly"
status. Born on May 4, 1935, in Rabbon village in Ludhiana district to
a wealthy land-owning family, this eminent novelist has published 27
novels, seven collections of short stories, the first part of her
autobiography and a literary biography. The eldest of five sisters and
a brother, she was adopted by her paternal aunt who had the
apprehension that her husband would marry again because they didnít
have a child.
