Norah Richards, an Irish writer, dramatist and a follower of Tolstoy. Her husband had been a Professor at The Government Collage at Lahore. After her husband’s death there, and a short stay in England, Norah returned to India in the mid-30’s. She settled in Andretta where she built a beautiful English style cottage, constructed of mud, slate and bamboo. There she taught drama to students from the Punjab. She was made a fellow of the Punjabi University Patiala and in return she bequeathed her house and land around it to them. Punjabi University has had the house lovingly restored by local craftsmen and masons. Even now, students from Punjabi University come to celebrate Norah’s birthday every year on 29th of October. They enact very professional dramas in her modest open air theatre.
