Book Description


The University has the pleasure to place in the hands of the readers SOME INSIGHTS INTO SIKHISM a compilation of the articles written by late Sirdar Kapur Singh former I.C.S. This volume is in pursuance of a project taken in hand some five years ago to collect and publish his stray writings bearing on Sikh thought, annals and cultures. Sirdar Kapur Singh's writings often showed great depth of thought and originality of approach. Sweep of his knowledge of major religions of the world is very often very fast.

I hope, this collection of fourteen refreshing articles will prove to be a valuable addition to the four works already published, namely Parasaraprasna or Baisakhi of Guru Gobind Singh, Guru Nanak's Life and thought, Sikkhism for Modern Man and Guru Arjun and His Sukhmani. With the publication of these books our quest for Sirdar Kapur Singh writings in English on religio-cultural cum historical aspects of Sikh fraternity has added significantly to our existing knowledge on Sikhism.

University's thanks are due to Sirdar Kapur Singh distinguished son, Dr. Inderjit Singh, Principle Economist I.B.R.D. Washington D.C. U.S.A for extending his valued cooperation in furnishing the University with the necessary type-scripts.
