Sikh Leadership & Some Aspects of Anglo Sikh Relations

Description This memorial lecture highlights the failure of Sikh leadership soon after the demise of Maharaja Ranjit Singh in 1839. Within the next few years, the Sikh kingdom was annexed by the British due to the court intrigues by the Dogra brothers, murders of Ranjit Singh's descendants successively and dissipation of Sikh Army. The lecture sums up the chronological account of all these tragic events and demise of the Sikh kingdom. The author attributes this dissipation to the total absence of leadership among the royal descendants and factional divisions in the army and betrayal by Dogra officials. The account is based on historical records and repeats the already well-known facts. Even then, it is rich in detail and provides a good summary of Sikh & Punjab history of Post-Maharaja period[edit]
