Seema will share a story of Maharaja Ranjit Singh and the Koh-i-Noor diamond. This is a true tale of empire, war, friendship, and betrayal, not only how the diamond came to be set in Queen Victoria’s crown, but also Duleep Singh’s story on how he found a new home in England and his inextricable link to the Punjab.
