India & World
By Hasan Suroor
Saintly Sinner, translated from Nanak Singh's pathbreaking novel Pavitra Papi by his grandson, Navdeep Suri, was released in style at the world-famous Foyles bookshop by film director, Shekhar Kapur, who read out excerpts from it.
Meera Syal, British Asian writer, film-maker and broadcaster, hailed it as a "treasure of a book".
Mr. Suri, a career Indian diplomat and press counsellor at the Indian High Commission here, said he wanted to bring the book to an English-speaking audience. "Nanak Singh was regarded as the father of the Punjabi novel and Pavitra Papi is one of his most critically acclaimed works," he said.
