Description This poetic epic (1892) records the Sikh history and its major events in great detail in 223 episodes in two volumes covering the almost whole of eighteenth century. Beginning with Banda Bahadur's meeting with Guru Gobind Singh, it narrates all the major events like Banda's conquest of Sirhind and laying the foundation of a Sikh state, all the major battles of the Sikhs and the Mughals, martyrdom of major Sikh warriors, two major massacres called Ghallugharas, eleven invasions of Ahmad Shah Abdali, successive Mughal governors and kings, factional fights between two Sikh factions. It is written in a flowing poetic verse in Gurmukhi script resembling the diction of Braj Bhasha. It is considered one of the primary sources of Sikh history. [edit]
