“It has been said that, at its best, preservation engages the past in a conversation with the present over a mutual concern for the future.”
—William Murtaugh, Keeper of the US National Register of Historic Places
I think this brilliantly describes the work of Bhai Baldeep Singh and the Anad Foundation. Preservation is not about getting locked in the past or looking backwards instead of forwards. It is about seeking the counsel of the ones who came before, seeing the present through their eyes, enriching the future with lessons of then and now.
