Jnanpith Award Honors Prolific Contributions of Gulzar and Rambhadracharya


The esteemed Jnanpith Award, a recognition of exceptional literary contributions, has been conferred upon two distinguished personalities – the legendary Urdu poet, lyricist, and filmmaker Gulzar, and the eminent Sanskrit scholar Jagadguru Rambhadracharya. The announcement was made by the Jnanpith selection committee, highlighting the significant impact these luminaries have had on their respective fields.

Gulzar, an iconic figure in the world of Urdu poetry, has not only left an indelible mark in cinema as a prolific lyricist and filmmaker but has also carved out a unique space in the literary realm. The committee acknowledged Gulzar’s innovation in poetry, citing the creation of the ‘Triveni’ genre – a non-mukaffa poem consisting of three lines. Beyond his cinematic achievements, Gulzar has continuously contributed to literature, particularly in the realm of children’s poetry.

With a career spanning over six decades, Gulzar’s influence extends far beyond his work in iconic films such as “Mere Apne,” “Parichay,” “Aandhi,” “Mausam,” and “Lekin.” The Jnanpith Award adds to his illustrious list of accolades, which includes the Dadasaheb Phalke Award, Padma Bhushan, Sahitya Akademi Award, an Oscar, a Grammy trophy, and multiple National Film Awards.
