Mrs Inderjit Kaur is 88

I have always had to share my mother with my brother Ravinder and other members of our family, but also thousands of her students, and many of her colleagues. This happened today also.

Since the morning we have been receiving calls and people as Mrs Inderjit Kaur, my mother, celebrates her 88th birthday today. Many of our friends spoke about the article, written by Niranjan Singh Sathi, that was published in the Punjabi Daily Ajit, today. I will be putting the article “Jagdi Jot Bibi Inderjit Kaur Sandhu” online shortly.

Doordarshan Jalandhar is also running the Punjabi documentary they had made on her in the “Dhian Punjab Dian” series.Please click here to see the film, which was been broadcast many times over the DD Jalandhar and DD Regional channels since it was originally telecast in July 13, 2009. TV critic Randeep Wadhera wrote about the programme and its subject  in the Saturday Extra section of The Tribune on August1, 2010.   Please
