Sau Sakhi

Description "San Sakhi" which means one hundred tales. Such tales about miracles associated with Hindu gods and Sikh Gurus were quite relevant in Punjab after end of Guru Period. These tales also contained predictions about the future events. Most of these tales are imaginative and concocted by non-genuine minds. These tales are related to divine figures in order to put a stamp of authenticity on their narrations. These tales were passed on to other generations by word of mouth and documented at some stage. What is unique about these tales in their mode of narration and invention of incidents and anecdotes which create an atmosphere of make-belief? Such tales appeal to the credulous readers but fall short analytical and perceptive judgment of enlightened readers. At best, it is a fiction disguised as fact[edit]
