Pothi Gur Bilas Ki

Description This handwritten ancient manuscript contains more than two hundred episodes (Sakhis) mainly about Guru Gobind Singh. The manuscript in Punjabi in Gurmukhi script is written black ink contains a table of contents containing page number, episode number followed by the title of the episode. The quality of the ink used seems to be quite superior. The style of writing being ancient, it is a bit difficult for the reader to separate words from the whole sentence and decipher their meaning. However, it is readable with due concentration and gradually the reader becomes familiar with the style. The title and back page are beautifully decorated with floral motifs. While the title page has a painting of Guru Gobind Singh astride his horse and year of composition the back page contains author's name in between a small verse dedicated to the tenth Sikh Guru. It is a fine specimen of manuscript writing. [edit]
