Overview: A History of the Sikhs

A History of the Sikhs, written by Khushwant Singh, is a detailed account of the origins of Sikhism and its later growth. Written in simple English, this book documents the events between 1469 to 1839 and reflects the comprehensive research carried out by the author. Singh encompasses the political, religious and social factors that contributed to the formation of the Sikh community. The evidence produced by him are a compilation of the original documents, which were originally written in Gurmukhi, English and Persian, as well as the impact it had on the sacred scriptures of the Granth Sahib.

Through the course of the book, the author also sheds light on the facts that lead to the overall transformation of the Sikh community from a peaceful tribe to a group of militants under the able leadership of Guru Gobind Singh. The relationship of the Sikhs with their Mughal and Afghani counterparts is also explained in a detailed fashion.

Khushwant Singh is one of India's most renowned writers and was also a journalist and historian. His poetic style of writing, infused with humour and quick wit made him a synonymous name across literary circuits all over the world. Khushwant Singh would often draw comparisons in the behavioural patterns of westerners and Indians, with a hint of imminent satire. He was awarded the Padma Bhushan by the Government of India in 1974 as well as the Padma Vibhushan in 2007. He has received other honours such as Punjab Rattan Award and Sahitya Academy Fellowship Award. His famous works apart from A History of the Sikhs include We Indians, Tragedy of Punjab and Death at my Doorstep. Singh has also written several short stories and columns in newspapers.
