Google honoured renowned Bollywood actor Amrish Puri on his birth anniversary today, on June 22, 2019, with a doodle.

We at Punjab Today believe that readers such as yourself appreciate cerebral journalism, and would like you to hold us against the best international industry standards. Brickbats are welcome even more than bouquets, though an occasional pat on the back is always encouraging. Good journalism can be a lifeline in these uncertain times worldwide.
