This appears to be a Panjabi translation of a little known contemporary Persian source of Sikh ithihaas. Put out by Balwant SIngh Dhillon, who also released an edition of Bhangu's Panth Prakash a few years ago. Great work by thesikhbookclub.com in putting it out for us. Haven't read it yet, but it appears to be shortish (66 pages): http://www.sikhbookclub.com/Book/Ahwal-ul-Khawaqin-by-Aaurangabadi
I came across this translation me and Bhagat worked on a good few years ago. It's from Giani Gian Singh's Twarikh Guru Khalsa. Niddar Singh put a smaller extract of this out, which brought it to the wider sangat's attention - including me (and no, I have no connection to him before anyone asks). The translation is rough as heck and me and Bhagat didn't agree on bits, so I take the responsibility of any flaws. I'll give page references to the original work later, and I hope to write up a little commentary on it some time and maybe even translate a few more paragraphs. ਪਿੱਛੇ ਦ
You know, a few of us here have been looking at SIkh ithihaas for a while now, and we've been blessed enough to be able to look at puratan sources outside of all the post-annexation stuff that most of us would have grown up with. I'd like to discuss. Is it important and/or useful. If so - in which way? Why?
