PANJAB: Review in Punjab Today

   Posted by: aman    in Punjab

Dear Friends,

Simrita Dhir has very graciously reviewed PANJAB: Journeys Through Fault Lines in Punjab Today. Thank you Smrita and Kanwar Manjit Singh!

Simrita says, ‘Faced with a dwindling economy, imperfect political and judicial systems, cloudy dreams and a horde of runaway aspirations, the land of the brave and home of the plenty calls out loudly for reform, rehabilitation and rectification of wrongs.’

Thank you friends for continuing to engage with the book. Please read review here …

Dear Friends,

last week a review of Panjab: Journeys Through Fault Lines by Yadwinder Singh appeared in the Punjabi Tribune (29.12.2019). I loved Yadwinder’s language and his content. It isn’t very often that one reads very fine Panjabi outside of books, in columns, in reviews.

What I also loved was how Yadwinder guides the readers to read the book by providing clues from within the book. That, to me, is an important aspect of reviews. Finally what I loved is, how Yadwinder highlights the photograph by Satpal Danish on the endsheets of the book and compares it with the legendary Ship of Theseus. I found it a brilliant allegory that lifts the review to a philosophical question applied to Panjab.

I felt, here is a review that truly adds to the book. I spoke to Kanwar Manjit Singh and very kindly he showcases the Panjabi review in English translation on Punjab Today.

Thank you! Please read here …
