Several new South Asian nation-states were born as the British Raj ended in 1947. The Panjab of the Indus Valley civilization (3300-1300 BCE) and the Sikh Rulers (1710-1849) was annexed by the British in 1849 and partitioned by their Radcliffe line in 1947. Akalis have been representing the Sikh political consciousness since 1920.

After 75 years of the Partition:
Why are the significant sections of Panjabis and the Sikhs feeling estranged?
What are the historical, cultural, geopolitical, trade, and economic contexts and realities?
How can those mentioned above be addressed, given the current trends?
