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.

Testimonials
Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
