Sketch of The Sikhs

Description This volume written by a British Army officer who served the Indian British Army in India during the early years of 19th century describes the history, manners and religion of the Sikhs whom he terms as an "extraordinary race" inhabiting the provinces of Punjab stretched, between the rivers Yamuna and Indus. This narration is based on his observation and interaction with the Sikh soldiers and people of Punjab and Sikh Nirmala saints. It is further supplemented by his study of some primary sources of Sikh history and Sikh religion. His narration is confined primarily to ten Sikh Gurus and Guru Granth Sahib. He concentrates more on the religions and historical legacy of the Sikhs and less on the contemporary state of Sikh society. In that sense, his "sketch" is not complete. But whatever part he has narrated reveals his thorough knowledge of Sikhism and his unbiased conclusions[edit]
