Sir John Singh And Duleep Singh

Description The comprehensive book is written by Lady Login, wife of Dr. John Spencer Login, the Guardian and Custodian of Prince Duleep Singh after the annexation of Punjab into the British Empire. It puts a strong defence of the manner in which the British government and its appointed custodian Dr. Login groomed the Sikh prince and handled the affairs of the last Sikh heir. She disapproves of the anti-British behavior of the grown-up deposed Sikh Maharaja and his trade against the British. She has put a strong rebuttal to all the charges leveled against the British government and Dr. Login by the Sikhs and states that whatever course of life the young Maharaja adopted including his conversion to Christianity was with the express consent of the Maharaja. Besides describing this love-hate relationship, the book describes the whole history of the British occupation of North India and Punjab. Since it is an eye witness and personally lived experience and its account, it is a valuable document on Sikh history its British bias is unmistakable[edit]
