    The bani and writings of Guru Gobind Singh Ji.
  1. The traditional view about the Sri Dasam Granth Sahib –‘The Global Vision of Guru Gobind Singh that is’. A rejoinder to IJ Singh: 'Sikhi: The Global Vision That Was' By Gurinder Singh Mann & Kamalroop Singh, UK, February 2012. ‘Sach kahon lun lehu sabhai, jin prem kio tin hi prabh paio’ ‘I proclaim the truth, listen all, those who are absorbed in love realise the Lord’ This tukh from the Sikh nitnem always hits hard, it resounds in my mind at the crescendo of the prayer. It always resonates deeply, and it seems to that the Guru intended this to be the case. He emphasizes that true love is the only way for mankind’s emancipation. Without love and passion in our prayer, simran and seva, it is just empty ritual. In the words of the Sufis, it is love that is the Divine wine that fills up the cup. This verse by Guru Gobind Singh daily reveals to us the ultimate truth, and is specifically in the third nitnem bani the Tav-Prasad Svaiye, which is a part of the longer Sri Akal Ustati. In the rest of the composition he reiterates that without bhavana or heartfelt devotion all religious rituals, however elaborate and splendid, are nothing but mere illusions. What is surprising is that a composition that shows the universal nature of Sikh Dharam is now subject to a constant barrage of doubts and criticisms.

  2. Gurfateh Ji The plaque being sold seems to be a copy of the plaque that is at Baba Atal Sahib Ji, not the actual one. As they are very similar it makes you wonder where it came from or what is the provenance of the plaque. Mullocks say most of the items on sale have come from a private collection in Germany.

  10. The Nihangs, sometimes referred to as the Akali Nihangs, are the most colourful and truly remarkable people of India. These Sikh warriors have overcome tremendous odds to preserve and protect the true traditions of the Khalsa. However, more understanding is needed of their Bana, including their decorated Turbans, their personification of weapons, and their reverence to Sikh scriptures. Click here for the review

  13. http://www.sikhnugget.com/2010/08/invitation-for-new-anglo-sikh-wars-book.html Invitation for new Anglo Sikh wars book A very warm invite to you for its launch at the Royal Geographic Society on the 7th September 2010. The book is a complete and comprehensive narration of the campaign including many new firsthand accounts and details that have surfaced since the last major book on the subject by Gough and Innes was published around a hundred years ago. The book also includes for the first time a detailed analysis of the battlefield sites of Mudki, Ferozeshah, Bhudowal, Aliwal and Sabraon and covers their history immediately after the battles and through the years, their current condition and what there is to see and explore for battlefield tourists and enthusiasts. The book has already received advance praise from both Military historians and battlefield archaeologists. Amongst others John Keay, author of the monumental work "India: A History" writes "'The First Anglo-Sikh War' unearths a wealth of rarely studied sources and marries them to exhaustive field research to produce a detailed study of an important but largely forgotten campaign". Dr. Tony Pollard, Battlefield archaeologist (BBC series presenter "Two men in a trench") says of the book "The sections on the battlefields today, which include vivid descriptions of the aftermath of combat by eyewitnesses, so often overlooked in works of military history, will help to make this a key work for a long time to come". Dilip Sarkar MBE, Military historian, Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and author of numerous books describes the book as "An extremely detailed study providing as definitive a narrative as is possible so many years later". Book Information sheet: During the eighteenth and early years of the nineteenth century, the red tide of British expansion had covered almost the entire Indian subcontinent, stretching to the borders of the Punjab. There the great Sikh ruler Ranjit Singh had developed his military forces to thwart any British advance into his kingdom north of the River Sutlej. Yet on the death of Ranjit Singh, unworthy successors and disparate forces fought over his legacy while the British East India Company seized the opportunity and prepared for battle. In the winter of 1845, the First Anglo-Sikh War broke out. From the start, the two-month campaign was married by Victorian arrogance and bluster on the British side and personal ambition, intrigue and treason in the Sikh camp. Five keenly fought contests ensued, including the great battle of Ferozeshah where the British force found itself caught between two powerful Sikh armies and came close to destruction. Declining to retreat, the British Commander-in-Chief Sir Hugh Gough told his second in command: 'My mind is made up. If we must perish, it is better that our bones should bleach honourably at Ferozeshah than rot at Ferozepore: but they shall do neither the one nor the other.' The fate of the British Empire in India would be decided that day. Amarpal Sidhu writes a warts and all tale of a conflict characterised by treachery, tragedy and incredible bravery on both sides. In an innovative approach to history writing, the narrative of the campaign is accompanied by battlefield guides that draw on eyewitness accounts and invite the reader to take a tour themselves of the battlefields, either physically or virtually. Fully illustrated with period drawings, modern-day photographs and new maps, The First Anglo-Sikh War gives a forgotten conflict the meticulous attention it deserves.
