Sikh Leadership Early 20th Century
Sikh Leadership Early 20th Century
Description
From the Jacket

In this work the author has identified and examined the social background of nearly three hundred prominent Sikh leaders and activists and a co-relation-ship between their background and socio-political perception. These leaders and activists were associated with the Sikh organizations like the Singh Sabhas, the Diwans, the Chief Khalsa Diwan, the Central Sikh League, the Shiromani gurdwara Prabandhak Committee and the Shiromani Akali Dal. On the basis of their heterogeneous social composition and different roles, the work denotes five categories of the Sikh leadership namely (a) the aristocratic leaders (b) retired civil and military personnel (c) Professionals (d) religious leaders and functionaries (e) Jathedars and activists.

The comprehensive background of this leadership in itself suggests that no single paradigm is adequate to analyse the causes and circumstances under which it joined the different Sikh organizations at different times. Therefore the work highlights the specific situations under which each category of this leadership joined the Sikh organizations and the distinct role played by each category in the Singh Sabha and the Akali Movements in late 19th and early 20th centuries.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
