Land Marks In Sikh History

Description As the book's subtitle reads, it is a compendium of "fully researched and documented history 1699-1947" of the Sikhs. It narrates the land mark events and role of distinguished Sikhs in the history of the Sikhs during the above mentioned period. It records the passage of Sikh community from its passive existence to militant Khalsa and their dream and realization of Sikh sovereignty during Maharaja Ranjit Singh's Sikh empire. It also records their loss of sovereignty, disintegration and present resurgence into a dynamic vibrant community. The author presents the recorded landmarks as lighthouses in Sikh history which could provide guidance to the future generation of Sikhs. The author's choice of these landmarks is masterly and their description is based on authentic sources. His command over the language and diction is equally impressive. The whole account books like a voyage through turbulent ocean of Sikh history.[edit]
