    We want to make it a full fledged tour and want to know more about the concept.
    What is the procedure? Is there any protocol ?Or can we hop in there anytime?

  4. I am engineer living in Abu Dhabi, UAE. I am so happy to incidentally find the Preetlari magazine on this website. I used to be a reader of Preetlari in my school days 1972-82 and also sadly follwed the news of martyrdom of S. Sumeet Preetlari in the pre-operation Bluestar days. It’s good to know how the family of S. Gurbaksh Singh Preetlari has kept this flame of literary patriotism burning amidst many storms and adversities. I wish and pray for a grand personal and professional success to Preetlari family !
    I will be visiting India and Chandigarh in next two weeks and would like to visit your office. I would also like to contribute my spare time for your historical publication, if internet support is possible.
