As a keynote speaker at the inaugural session, Prof Gandhi exhorted India and Pakistan to put their own house in order.
Excerpts from several reviews are available in this PDF file.
The Institute of Strategic Studies Islamabad (ISSI) hosted the launching ceremony of the book Punjab: a History from Aurangzeb to Mountbatten, authored by Rajmohan Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi.
The session included a public talk centred around understanding modern Pakistan and India through the prism of undivided Punjab.
How can India-Pakistan relations be improved? "Above all, through people to people contact," believes Dr Rajmohan Gandhi. He was speaking in a conversation with Sehyr Mirza.
As part of his visit to Lahore, Prof Gandhi took part in an all-day interaction at Lahore University of Management Sciences’ humanities and social sciences department, and an international conference organised by the Trust for History, Art and Architecture of Pakistan.
As many as 1,000 students from the Lahore College of Women University, the Government College University, Kinnaird College and the University of Engineering and Technology welcomed Dr Gandhi as he walked up to the podium to deliver a lecture on the life of Bacha Khan at Sinclair Hall at the Forman Christian College.
He said that in the history of every nation, two forces remained at work — the unifying and the divisive. "The divisive forces destroy and the unifying forces lead to progress. We need to focus on the unifying forces," he said.
Researched in India, Pakistan and at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Rajmohan Gandhi's latest book narrates a 240-year story of what old-timers know as undivided Punjab, beginning with the 1707 death of Emperor Aurangzeb and ending with the 1947 division into West Punjab and East Punjab.
