Grewal Twins

The Sisters of the Lahore Darbar

The Sisters of the Lahore Darbar


Our story begins in India in the Spring of 1801
A flock of birds, taking flight, are silhouetted against the backdrop of a rising crimson Sun

Prayers echo out from the Gurudwara, Mandir and Masjid; the seraphic sounds add tranquility
to a city otherwise accustomed to the clamour of street market cacophony

These are the sights and sounds of the charming city of Lahore,
that greet two new individuals here; two sisters known as Sukhman and Hernoor Kaur

The young ladies have been invited to partake in a most unique celebration
The coronation day of Maharaja Ranjit Singh: the first sovereign of a united Punjab, and of the first and last Sikh Kingdom

Dressed in shades of gold and adorned in precious jewelled fineries,
the sisters arrive to witness the birth of an Empire tolerant to all religions, castes and ethnicities

After they meet the Maharaja, they pass by the lush paradise garden of Shalimar Bagh
It is here where the twin sisters have been invited to sing melodies in the mid-morning Raag

The Sovereign King of fairness and compassion offers them patronage of musical nature
He welcomes them to join his Court, the Lahore Darbar in all it's exquisite splendour

Thereafter, the sisters begin to study their craft to enhance their musical ability
Whilst also learning the many shades of endless musical melodies

The Maharaja asks them to sing twice a day; once during the ambrosial hours and again in the enchanting night
The two sisters feel blessed with their way of life, as if they are the ones to posses the
Koh-i-Noor diamond: The Mountain of Light

Jinne Lahore Nahi Vekhiya, Oh Jammiya Hi Nahi...
Those who have not seen Lahore, have not truly lived...
