Rethinking 1857 and The Punjab
Rethinking 1857 and The Punjab
Description
Foreword

Historiography is a continuous process of debate in historical scholarship. It provides space for re-examining, rethinking or re-evaluating existing perceptions on particular historical events or developments. It poses a challenge before the scholars to search for new evidences, explore hitherto unknown areas in order to enable new and different interpretations of human history.

The Uprising of 1857 has assumed national character. Particular understanding developed on the nature of this event in 1857 and later on in 1957, during its 100th year of commemoration. Yet this perception is marked by two limitations one, pertaining to the character of the happenings ; two, role of the Sikhs. Further its scope remained limited because it was largely seen as religion oriented and for its failure Sikhs were held responsible.

Later on with the availability of newer evidences and with re-visiting the issue certain facts began to emerge with a country-wide debate generated because of its 150th year of commemoration in 2007. To participate in this opportunity the Department of Punjab Historical Studies organized Seminar on 28 November 2007. The issues taken up are very relevant and pertinent. Apart from discussion on the above mentioned two inter-related themes of the event; other issues explored are the official understanding contemporary non-official perception, early nationalist views, Radical and Marxist perspectives, recent descriptions and evaluations, the event in literature and memory along with its academic and social relevance.

I am hopeful that publication of these research papers will help in re understanding the happenings and also relocating position of the Sikhs in particular historical situations. The Department of Punjab Historical Studies and its Head, Dr Navtej Singh deserve congratulations for hard work and bringing out the volume. Its publication during 150th year of commemoration will certainly contribute to the debate with significant addition to the national historiography.

Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
