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 …

Punjabi Tribune Review – PANJAB

   Posted by: aman    in Punjab

Dear Friends,

in the last weekend of this year, Panjab gave me a gift. It is the review of Panjab: Journeys Through Fault Lines by Yadwinder Singh in the Punjabi Tribune.

I am translating the review into English and will share it soon. I find it great that a book in English is reviewed in the language of the society, community, region it depicts.

Thank you!
