The Sutlej Bridge

Civil and Military Gazette, 2 March 1887
  • Thomas Pinney


The name ‘Punjab’ means ‘five rivers’: the Jelum, Chenab, Ravi, Bias, and Sutlej. They unite to form the Indus. Of these rivers, the Sutlej, the southernmost, drains the largest area. Ferozepore is about fifty miles to the south and slightly east of Lahore. Raewind (Raiwind), which Kipling also mentions, is roughly midway between Lahore and Ferozepore.
