The Sikhs are universally respectful nad proud of their Guru's intimate contact with eastern India, representing the territories of Assam, Bengal and Orissa under british rule. It may be debated, however weather the Gurus' disciples are generally aware of how the penthic message has been transmitted and prerecived over the centuries in this part of country. Their comparative lack of Enthusiams may be partly due to the bulky nature of these sources as well as the diffeculty of having them together in the public library or any single private collection. These materials are in regional languages and carry and distinct local flavour, differing significantly from those of the manjha-malwa-doaba watershed. They suggest not only the sprit of plurality in Indian cultural traditions, but also Sikhism's intimate link with it. There identification and appreciation is likely to enrich our understanding of Sikhism in the wider context of the Indian university and diversity.
