Those who appreciate Punjabi language and literature were a pained lot when India was partitioned.
However, the launch of Sanjh magazine, published with common content from Ludhiana in India and Lahore in Pakistan, addressed some of the hurt. Since 2007, the magazine has become a platform for writers in India, Pakistan and Punjabi NRIs to contribute and read content from across the border.
Published in both Gurmukhi and Shahmukhi, the magazine has now started online publications making it possible for readers to access it over the internet.
“The language is same. Only the script differs. In India we use Gurmukhi, but in Pakistan we use Shahmukhi. Both magazines have similar content, which includes stories, poems and articles from Punjabis in India, Pakistan and even abroad. An issue is published after every three months. All issues can now be accessed on http://www.sanjh.org. Our aim is to transcend all borders for literature lovers,” said Manu Sharma Sohal, editor of Sanjh (Ludhiana).
“Sanjh means common. There was no better way to do it than making the magazine online and accessible to all,” said Dr Jagtar Dhiman, who is part of the editorial board.
