Malwa Desh Ratan Di Saakhi Pothi

Description The volume contains episodes written about the travels of Guru Tegh Bahadur and Guru Gobind Singh in the Malwa region of Punjab. It is written by anonymous writer around 1880, though no definite date and year is given. It is one of the primary sources of Sikh history which has been extensively used by Kavi Santokh Singh during his writing of epic "Gur Partap Suraj Granth". The present volume has been prepared after consulting english translated version published earlier in 1867 and another ancient manuscript available and finally edited and published in 1950. From its language, it seems to be written in the Malwa dialect of Punjabi which prints towards its author being a resident of Malwa. These episodes (Sakhis) narrate the two Sikh Gurus' encounters with several people and sitting up congregations at several places. The establishment of Sikh shrines at places mentioned in these tales bear testimony to the authenticity of the names of these places. Its language is colloquial and conversational.[edit]
