Author Navtej Sarna in discussion with, renowned author of the 'Maharajahs Box', Christy Campbell, on his novel on the life of Maharajah Duleep Singh. This fictionalised account reveals the tragedy of a man who went from being a King to a supplicant, who changed his religion twice, who had a late realisation of his lost destiny and was ultimately unable to return to his land and people. His life is one of the most poignant chapters in Sikh history, as well as the history of British India.
