“A community without its records is a community under siege, defending itself, its identity, and its version of history without a firm foundation on which to stand.”
- Jeannette Bastian

The dying heritage of Panjab is waiting for your decision; a decision which will decide the future of our past. We have lost a lot in last 100 years; for the sake of our future generations let us save what remains. Chapters of history which have remained untouched might get lost without a serious reader, who might be destined to take birth after 100 years from now. Let us arm our children to defend themselves with availability of original records. Please support us, take a step forward and help PDL digitize more documents by giving donations generously. Please send checks payable to “Panjab Digital Library USA” at 6445 Love Drive #1082, Irving, TX 75039, USA or donate online.

Lest We Forget

"But where were now their leaders? – The men who had instigated the revolt, and who with dastardly duplicity sought their private interest by simulated friendship with both parties? Where was Tej Singh, the chief commander of the Sikh forces?"

When the British opened the assault, Tej Singh commanded the entrenchment, but as soon as we had effected breaches in the mound, and the fire from his batteries began to slacken, when his followers were falling thick around him, when the British, led on by their gallant commanders, fought resolutely for every inch of ground, Tej Singh, instead of manfully leading on fresh troops, and animating them by his example.
