Nothing Azaad

2022 marks 75 years since Partition, poet Sharan Kaur Padda writes this heartfelt poem about the division of her nation, Panjab. Whilst for many it’s a time of celebrating Independence, it came with a void in many people’s hearts, death and displacement of homes to name a few of the traumas suffered. This is an ode to the undivided Panjab, its shared culture, and a time when it was whole.

Cast in 1757 in Lahore during the Durrani Empire, this 4.5-meter-long cannon with a 24cm bore was the largest of its time. Made from brass and copper with intricate floral patterns and Persian verses, it bore the inscription “A destroyer even of the strongholds of the heaven.” Used in battle by the Durranis from 1761, it was seized by the Sikh army led by Sardar Hari Singh Bhangi in 1762.
