A reading and open audience discussion of ‘The Sufi’s Nightingale’ by Sarbpreet Singh. ‘The Sufi’s Nightingale’ is a magical, deeply moving book about love and faith based on the life of the great Sufi Madho Lal Hussain of Punjab. Published by Speaking Tiger Books, it is a retelling of the life of Shah Hussain, the master of the Kafi form of poetry, and his beloved acolyte Madho, a young Brahmin boy who went on to become his successor. The book, which has Shah Hussain’s magnificent poems at its heart, is ultimately a celebration of love in its purest form.
