Guru Pratap Suraj

Description This scholarly book written in Hindi summarises the ancient masterpiece of Kavi Santokh Singh known as Guru "Partap Suraj Granth". This 19th century composition written in ancient Braj Basha in Devnagri script is considered as one of the primary sources of Sikh religion and Sikh history, despite a plethora of Hindu mythological references in this great epic. The author has brought out its spiritual, devotional, martial war-linked literary content, beauty of nature and cycle of seasons and human emotions of compassion, maternal love, romance and beauty-related aspects. Seen in this context, this epic is a comprehensive epic of divine and temporal aspirations of man as well as a chronicle of Sikh history. The author's account is brief, penetrating, and interpretative. It is likely to popularize this great ancient epic among a vast section of modern readers. The whole attempt is scholarly, literary and fairly descriptive.[edit]
