The Sikhs Poems

Description This bouquet of poems written by a celebrated poet is imbued with the philosophy, message and teachings of the sacred Sikh scripture Guru Granth Sahib. Although the imagery and setting of these poems is taken from the country side of Punjab, but it is couched in spiritual and mystical content of the poet's faith in the divine. The poems reflect the originality and versatility of its author. The metaphor of the spinning wheel (Charkha) evokes images of a popular Punjabi folklore singing concert of rural girls. However, its deeper meaning is spiritual.[edit]
