Parmjit Singh and his discovery of the iconic front cover image of an Akali Nihang warrior from 1865. What did it mean to him and how has it effected him?
Parmjit Singh, along with his co-author Amandeep Singh Madra is a founding member of the UK Punjab Heritage Association (ukpha.org), and is a founding director of Kashi House. They have collaborated on several books on Sikh history including:
● The original version of Warrior Saints: Three Centuries of Sikh Military Tradition (IB Tauris, 1999)
● “Sicques, Tigers, or Thieves”: Eyewitness Accounts of the Sikhs (1606-1809) (Palgrave Macmillan, 2004)
● The Golden Temple of Amritsar: Reflections of the Past (1808-1959) (Kashi House, 2011)
● The new Warrior Saints: Four Centuries of Sikh Military History (Kashi House, 2013)
Pedro's unique take on the iconic front cover image of Warrior Saints and how through his work he sought to distil the very essence of the Sikh warrior. What makes a portrait? What constitutes a Sikh Warrior's Identity?
