‘Lessons from Malerkotla’, National Herald, 6 October 2019.

Malerkotla
Malerkotla, 2002.

Sharing my piece from a commemorative edition on Gandhi in the National Herald. It revisits my doctoral research on the former Muslim princely state of Malerkotla and recalls attempts at communal harmony by that state,  sandwiched between its famous Sikh princely brethren & British Indian apparatus, but on this occasion, more sensible than both.
