from Dr. Thind to his father, S. Boota Singh Thind
Dr. Thind was very diligent in writing to his father after leaving
India in 1912. This assemblage of letters are the only known copies
available, and were gratefully given by his nephew, Charan Singh
Thind, who currently resides in Amritsar - the same home Dr. Thind
was born and raised in by his parents.
sequence of letters begins with Dr. Thind arriving in Manila sometime
in 1912 and continuing on to where he worked in the Oregon lumber
mills. One will note in reading the letters of Dr. Thind's generosity,
not only in supporting his parents, but also many members of his
family. Most of the letters were handwritten in Urdu or Gurmukhi.
The letters were graciously translated by Onkar S. Bindra.
