THE nations that honour their heroes and cherish their memories, not only link the past with the present but are also able to work out an agenda for their future. That being so I propose to present a birdís-eye view of the life and achievements of three great Sikhs ó Partap Singh Kairon, Gian Singh Rarewala and Sobha Singh ó born in 1901, whose memory we must keep alive. Punjabis shall remain eternally beholden to them, for they are, in more ways than one, among the makers of modern Punjab.
