An anecdotal travelogue about Lahore – which begins within the present and travels through time to the mythological origins of the city attributed to Ram’s son, Lav. Throughout the city’s present – its people, communities, monuments, parks and institutions – the writer paints a vivid picture of the city’s past. From its emergence under Mahmud Ghaznavi to the Mughal centuries where a few succession intrigues unfolded on its soil, its recasting as the capital of Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s Khalsa Empire, the role it played in preserving the British Raj, to acting as an incubator of revolutionaries and people’s movements, Lahore influenced the subcontinent’s political trajectory again and again.
Today, too, Lahore frequently determines which way the wind will blow on Pakistan’s political landscape. The Lahore Resolution of 1940, which laid the blueprint for the creation of the rustic, was once signed here. The city saw the birth of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s PPP, in addition to his downfall. It was once to Lahore that Benazir Bhutto returned to combat a military dictator, and where Imran Khan heralded his arrival as a main contender at the political battlefield. As the capital of Punjab, Lahore continues to cast a long shadow over the federal state.
