Booker winner Gitanjali Sri's show postponed after complaint; Objections to writings about Hindu gods

PTI, Agra: Organizers of an event to honor writer Geetanjali Sri, who won the International Booker Prize, have called it off on Saturday. The decision was taken after a police complaint was filed against Gitanjali for allegedly writing offensive things about deities in the novel.
