Heritage Shared 2009
A Gripping Story of Sacrifice, Suffering, and Ongoing Injustice
In 1916 German scientists made an 80-second audio recording of a Sikh soldier captured at the Battle of Flanders during WWI. The starving soldier, Mal Singh, yearns to return to his home in the Punjab, the "land of butter and milk."
Retired Indian Colonel Perminder Singh Randhawa reflects on Mal Singh's fate, and locates his descendants still living in the ancestral village, and hoping to receive his long-forgotten pension.
A film by Michael Singh, presented by ASHT.
