UCSB’s Punjab studies programme in Chandigarh

Every year a group of seekers—some of them students and some teachers—come from various corners of the world to learn more about Punjab, the land, its people, history, geography and culture.
Professor Gurinder Singh Mann has been running this course on Punjab studies for 11 years now. He has emerged as a mentor who runs what I humorously call an academic boot camp, where extensive exposure is given to international students who interact with top Indian experts. I have attended some lectures, and I have also had the privilege of meeting, interacting and lecturing these students. This year too, a set of bright young minds came to Chandigarh and took back with them information and exposure to all things Punjabi.
