As the subtitle suggests these articles written by a learned scholar make a realistic and critical analysis and evaluation of certain Sikh practices prevalent in the Sikh society at the time of writing these articles. He regrets the re-induction of certain Brahminical rituals in Sikh ceremonies and practices which violate the fundamental Sikh tenets. He is very critical of the manner in which Sikh congregations are organized. He is a votary of the liberal and all-embracing identity of Sikhism in which even Sahajdhari (those who share their hair and beard) and other sub-sects of Sikhism should be kept as integral parts of Sikh religion. He feels concerned at the increasing trend of using intoxicants among the Sikhs. He applauds the contribution of Nirankari Sikh sect's founding fathers to the Sikh religion. The articles reflect the profound scholarship, deep commitment to Sikh tenets and the missionary zeal of the author. His expression and argumentative prose together with his scholarly analysis leaves a deep impression on the reader.
