Acclaimed photographer Amardeep Singh’s beautifully illustrated travelogue is a true labour of love. The author visited 36 cities in Pakistan to explore the region’s impact and influence on Sikh culture (and vice versa) – the resulting book’s photography and commentary offers a unique insight into West Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Pakistan Administered Kashmir.

You can join Amardeep at the Bradford Literature Festival for an enlightening event of two halves, as he presents his photographs and shares his experiences in Pakistan, before being joined by a panel of special guests. They include chair Virinder Kalra, social science lecturer at the University of Manchester and editor of ‘Pakistani Diasporas: Culture, Conflict and Change’; and panellists, blogger Sunny Hundal and Pippa Virdee, senior lecturer in South Asian history at De Montfort University.

Together they’ll discuss the significance of the Sikh legacy in Pakistan and why so little is known about it among the Sikh and Pakistani diaspora.
