Keynote Address at Punjabi University Patiala

   Posted by: aman    in Other

Prof. Rajesh Sharma invited me to give the keynote address at the Department of English Seminar at the Punjabi University Patiala. I was nervous. I knew what I wanted to say but I did not know how the talk would be received. To my delight and surprise Punjab welcomed me with open arms.

I emphasized on the need for Punjab – all Punjabis beyond lines of religious, caste and gender divisions – to engage with the decade of 1980s and recount what has happened to us.
