order go unheeded
LUDHIANA, Jan 20 — Though
the Tajpur Road land scandal has been highlighted time and again by the
media and the residents of the place, no concrete steps have been taken
by the local administration so far.
THE princely state of
Kapurthala drew its name from Nawab Kapur Singh who lived in the 18th
century. Today the district headquarters and the district bear this
name. Ludhiana has produced two name-sakes who have been pioneers of
their own fields. One is Sardar Kapur Singh who got a master’s degree
from Cambridge, made it to the I.C.S. and left scholarly works. After
the Nawab (18th century) and before the Sardar (20th century) was born
Kapoor Singh in the 19th century. He is popularly remembered as Kapoor
Singh Nasrali. Someone asked him why he spelt his name as Kapoor Singh.
He replied: ‘Poor’ in ‘Kapoor’, reminds me of what I am.”
