 DESCRIPTION
spacer
This illustrated chronicle of the Sikhs, written by one of India's best-loved writers-Khushwant Singh, comprehensively records the story of a remarkable community. Over hundred and fifty rare pictures, including portraits, paintings, etchings, religious prints and photographs collected from a wide variety of sources, complement the compelling narrative. Baying particular attention to the community's return to the national mainstream in India, after the challenge of violence, exclusion and terrorism, the volume explores a people's achievements across fields-most visible in the elevation of a Sikh to the land's highest political office. The narrative beings more than 500 years ao with the birth of Sikhism as a pacifist sect, striking out on its own against the complexity and ritualism of contemporary religion and society. Throughout its colourful, yet at times turbulent history, the Sikh community underwent many changes of fortune, always remaining, however, a social and political force to reckon with. Its transformation into an activist community, thanks to a troubled and strife-ridden relationship with the Mughals and Afghans; the consolidation of Sikh power under Maharajah Ranjit Singh; the takeover of the Sikh kingdom by the British; the Punjab's emergence as the country's granary; religions reform within the community; the trauma of Partition; the troubled years of separatist militancy; and the return of normalcy, are all detailed in the book. Interesting episodes and personalities, presented in Khushwant singh's trademark style, infuse colour and dynamism in the story of the Sikhs highlighting their determination to carve out a distinct identity, singular bravery in the face of potent threats, and cultural vigour. At the end of the book, a photo gallery showcasing some personalities and a biographical portrait of the author add additional value. Written with passion and depth and richly embellished, Khushwant Singh's classic will fascinate readers both within and outside the community.
