Title Gooroo Ram Singh and the Kuka Sikhs
Description This is reprint of earlier edition with the difference of publisher & publication year. The content and author are the same. The struggle for India's independence from the British colonial rule was strengthened and empowered by several regional religions and social organizations and their patriotic freedom fighters. The Namdhari (Kuka) Sikh sect in Punjab was at the forefront throughout the 19th century. Not only its chief was exiled, but sixty seven Kukas were blown up by canon fire. The book chronicles the life and revolutionary activities of Baba Ram Singh as well as the sacrifices of other Kuka martyrs. The book is based on official documents from 1872 to 1880. The dates and other details concerning Kuka movement's activities seem to be correct. The book, irrespective of its inadequacies of index and other niceties, is a firsthand account of this political movement. The authors, despite being rural with limited means, have done justice both to the content and linguistic proficiency.
