This project was conceived by the Panjab Cultural Association to ensure the works of the Dr Leyden's Panjabi translations were brought out to the open.
This website focusses on the Panjabi works of Dr Leyden, the orientalist and poet who left what could be the first english translations of Panjabi texts. This site shows these translations and their significance to the wider Panjabi community.
The website covers the life of Dr Leyden and his translations. Manuscripts of the original texts are also shown so the link can be made with the english translations.
The viewpoint of scholars is given together with a general listing of Dr Leydens other works. The project aims to contribute towards Anglo-Panjabi heritage.
