About the Author ‘ML Ahluwalia ' of the Book Maharani Jind Kaur
Professor M.L. Ahluwalia (1922-2000) was a prominent historian-archivist who authored numerous books and research papers on the history of Punjab. His special area of interest was post-Ranjit Singh period which witnessed the fall of the Sikh kingdom. He was a widely travelled scholar who laid his hand on documents pertaining to the freedom movement of India lying in the Russian and Hungerian archives.
