The South Asian Studies Institute, in partnership with the Sikh Heritage Museum, National Historic Site Gur Sikh Temple, hosted author Amardeep Singh as he discussed his second pictoral publication: THE QUEST CONTINUES: LOST HERITAGE The Sikh Legacy in Pakistan. The second collection, much like his first book, motivates all communities to become aware of their past, and through it, learn to live in harmony for mutual progress.
During a personal visit to Pakistan in 2014, in a journey that took him across 36 cities and villages, Amardeep felt it was important for posterity to document his explorations in a book entitled, LOST HERITAGE The Sikh Legacy in Pakistan. The passage thereafter spurred him into an almost obsessive quest to research further the tangible and intangible Sikh legacy across Pakistan. In Jan 2017, he undertook another journey, this time travelling extensively to 90 cities and villages across Sindh, Balochistan, Pakistan Administered Kashmir, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and the Punjab. The continuing thread of explorations, again motivated him to document them in the sequel entitled, THE QUEST CONTINUES: LOST HERITAGE The Sikh Legacy in Pakistan.
The Sikh Heritage Museum was standing room only, as those in attendance reflected on Amardeep’s stories and messages of humanism and unity. Dr. Muhammad Tariq, the Consul General of Pakistan, was also in attendance and gave a beautiful speech on the importance of heritage preservation.
Both of Amardeep’s books can be purchased through Amazon. If you’re interested in hosting Amardeep, he can be contacted directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
