Description

Spirit of the Sikh, written between 1927 and 1930, is perhaps the last work of Professor Puran Singh, unless what according to the statement of his son, the late reminder Singh, he scribbled on his bedside charts while lying sick, be taken into account. He caught the fatal disease of tuberculosis during the last years of the decade of the twenties; and this assuming the galloping character, he passed away in March, 1931. Puran Singh’s whole life was passed in writing activity that may be called feverish without the implication of a mere metaphor.

A vast mass of work poured out from his pen-on the science of biochemistry in which he held a professorship at the Imperial Forest Research Institute, Dehra Dun; English belles-letters expressive of fervent devotion to the holy Gurus of Sikhism and their teaching, and of warm humanitarianism. In addition, towards the last decade of his life cut short so cruelly, he poured out those writings in Punjabi, prose and poetry, that have acquired the status of classics in the language.

The present book will not only add an important new dimension of awareness about the total literary achievement of Puran Singh, but will be of absorbing interest to students of the higher aspects of religion and of the Sikh faith whose study has only recently caught on in the academic sphere.
