Synopsis This is the story of a man who was regarded as the most powerful chief minister of the fifties. Punjab not only bore the brunt of Partition, but the state’s economy was also left in ruins. This was the time when one man helped the state emerge from the ravages of death and destruction—Sardar Partap Singh Kairon. He steered Punjab away from the confused times after Partition and reined in divisive forces that threatened to divide the state yet again. He succeeded in getting different communities to work together and brought stability to a volatile region. Kairon combined both vision and administrative acumen to transform Punjab into the grain bowl of the country as well as one of the most prosperous states. Kairon was much more than the creator of modern Punjab—he was a statesman and a visionary. His tragic assassination remains a mystery even today.
