The objective of this second wave of fund raising is to expand the placement of the two book sets on 'The Sikh Legacy in Pakistan' at the Indian Public Schools and the higher learning institution across India, in the states other than Punjab Chandigarh and Delhi. This is aimed to enable the youth reconnect with the glorious past of the dispersed Sikh community that is now deprived of access to their ancestral lands. It also aims to make the world aware of these lost chapters of the Sikh legacy.
Supported by the first wave of fund raising, 405 book sets have already been placed at institutions in Pakistan, and in India across East Punjab, Chandigarh and Delhi.
Amardeep Singh has travelled across 126 cities and villages in Pakistan and documented the remnants of the Sikh legacy for posterity in two books titled, ‘LOST HERITAGE The Sikh Legacy in Pakistan’ and ‘THE QUEST CONTINUES: LOST HERITAGE The Sikh Legacy in Pakistan’.
This research is a first comprehensive attempt in seven decades.
BUDGET (placement of 150 books)
Printing cost = $6000

Above costs to produce these publications do not included the field research cost in Pakistan to explore the remnants of the Sikh legacy)
