UK Punjabi writer Roop Dhillon has joined Uddari Weblog as an Author/Contributor. He has published three novels from UK titled ‘Neela Noor’, ‘Bharind’ and ‘Samurai’. Talking about why he decided to learn Punjabi and write in it, he says:

‘This particularly occurred because Professor Khushwant Singh commented that Punjabi was a weak language with insufficient words to describe things. This annoyed me, and I went on a mission to create new words to describe my modern urban environment. This led me to write my first Punjabi novel, Neela Noor, written as a western style novel with anglicized Punjabi grammar reflecting my peers’ use of the language. It is the first Punjabi novel published in the UK; and, it is also significant in that it is secular, set in Pakistan, India and Europe’.

He is passionate about Punjabi, literature, story writing, and most of all– pushing some of those boundaries.
