Same Old Story

Over the years, I have read many stories and legends from the old Punjab, a region now shared between two countries, India and Pakistan, and have enjoyed writing my own versions, some of which are available in paperback from Amazon.

Ramayana, the story of Rama and Sita, and Heer Ranjha, an old Punjabi love story, are now joined by another love story, Sassi Punnu, which I have dramatised as Same Old Story.

This photograph of two swans engaging in their mating ritual was taken by an old friend, who gave me his permission to use it as the cover image for the script, which is available now from Amazon.
