  • A new website on a Panjabi scholar of the 19th century

    At the turn of the 1800's the British would make inroads into the various areas of India. One of these areas was that of the Panjab. A fertile area which had a history going back 1000's of years. As part of the migration of British writers, translators and army personnel was one Dr John Leyden from Scotland. As part of his translation work undertaken in India, he would work on several Panjabi texts.

    The new website will present these translations for the first time to show the common ground of the British and the people of Punjab. Dr Leydens work reveals that his work on the Punjab was ths start of Punjabi histiography.
