Noted Hindi writer Malti Joshi, whose work was filmed by Gulzar, no more | India News



NEW DELHI: Renowned Hindi writer Malti Joshi passed away at her residence on Wednesday. She was 90 and battling esophagus cancer, a press release said.
Aurangabad-born Joshi, who also wrote in Marathi, had received the Padma Shri in 2018.
Kokh Ka Darp, Outsider, Aastha Ke Aayam and Problem Child are among her representative stories.
One of her works, Culture, was filmed by Gulzar for the television serial, Kirdaar.
Noted Hindi writer Mridula Garg said that the most unusual and riveting feature of Malti Joshi’s story writing was that she would narrate them verbatim in public instead of reading from the printed page like the katha vachak of epics and historical tales. “It gave them a unique tonal quality and showcased, not only her prodigious memory but also her command over tenor and melody of the text. No wonder she had such a vast readership,” Garg said.
