5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - well written and very inspiring, 8 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Empire of the Sikhs: The Life and Times of Maharaja Ranjit Singh (Paperback)
This book is a real eye-opener. Very well structured and readable, it is beautifully
written in rich and refined language.

Although a Sikh myself, my UK upbringing meant that I knew very little about the history
of Sikhism or of Punjab. This book does an excellent job in filling in all the gaps for
me. I found it very inspiring - some of the sacrifices and hardships that Sikhs faced in
the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries at the hands of the Mughal rulers are shocking.

This book encaptures the spirit of Sikhism, the values of equality, freedom,
for fighting against oppression, and for the belief in peaceful co-existence
with those of other faiths. The acheivements of the Gurus, the Sikh warriors and rulers
are a real inspiration for any Sikh today.

A must read!
