Rajmohan Gandhi on the tale of the 'undivided Punjab' | India Arts & Culture Special

Eminent historian and thinker Rajmohan Gandhi's latest book, Punjab: A History from Aurangzeb to Mountbatten will be launched on 18 September 2013 in Chandigarh. Researched in India, Pakistan and at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the book narrates a 240-year story of what old-timers know as undivided Punjab, beginning with the 1707 death of Emperor Aurangzeb and ending with the 1947 division into West Punjab and East Punjab. Post-1707 instability, invasions by Nadir Shah and Ahmed Shah Abdali, Afghan-Sikh clashes, half a century of Sikh rule, a century of British rule, the movements for independence and majority rule, the carnage of 1947, and the humanity that countered the carnage -- all this and more is covered and interpreted. Rajmohan Gandhi spoke to D P Satish about his book and many other issues. (India History Special, Interview, Raj Mohan Gandhi Interview, Arts & Culture news, Books of India)
