Dehli Centre celebrates Sophia Wadia

Two pages from The Indian PEN, including one photograph and the first page of Keith, Joseph Joel. “The Golden Year” The Indian PEN 26, no.5 (May 1960): 1. The photograph shows PEN members, mainly from the Delhi Centre, at a meeting organised by the Delhi Centre in honour of Sophia Wadia, founder of the All-India Centre, who received the Padma Shri in 1960 – the fourth highest civilian honour in India. Wadia can be seen seated in the middle of the second row. Standing either side of her are Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, on the left, first Vice-President and second President of India (1952-62); and Jawaharlal Nehru, on the right, first President of India (1947-64). This photograph correlates to a separate article to the one it is attached to here, which is a review of a poetry anthology titled The Golden Year.
