--: Biography of Dr. Renu Behl :--


Dr. Renu Behl was born to AC Behl and Mr Avinath Behl on August 6, 1958 at Kapurthala, Punjab. She has done MA (Pub. Ad), MA (Pol. Sc.) and MA Urdu (gold medalist). Did her PhD on “Ismat Chughtai ke afsaonoka fanni wa fikri jaiza” from Punjab University, Chandigarh in 2000. She had started her literary journey as Urdu poet, but later on switched over to prose. Her first anthology, Aaina (mirror), was published in 2001, won an award from the Uttar Pradesh Urdu Akademi. Thereafter three more of her short story anthologies – Aankhon sey dil tak, Koyee chaarasaaz hota (also awarded by UP Urdu Akademi) and Khusboo meray aangan ki– were published. Her latest book, Khushboo meray aangan ki deals with different aspects of human relationships with the feminine aspect featuring prominently. Behl has a knack for portraying the psychological aspect of human relationships with that slight ironical twist which leaves the reader pondering over the denouement.
